Hello From Southeast Texas

Hmmm, introductions...

I'll be as brief as possible.  I am a Jewish girl born in Chicago and have lived in Texas for 24 years.  Love it here and consider Texas now "home".  I suppose I should after that long???  I joined a small group of Jewish friends about 10 years ago and I was soon elected to be the official Challah baker.  I never really did much bread baking but, my father tells me that I hail from a long line of career bakers--water & flour run through my veins.  Great-Grandparents owned a bakery in Poland and Grandfather was a career baker (45 years) in St. Louis.

I'll come hang out here when I'm not busy with life, work, ect.

   Hi aunt mimi,  Where in texas are you.  I will be in Victoria in a couple of weeks.  Your intro was interesting.  I am a Jewish woman who couldn't imagine what it would be like living for many years in texas.        Ruth Redburn

It's pretty much like anywhere else in the U.S.  Just ask Willie Nelson.
