    You should feel heroic, it was a lot of work? Luckily we had perfect weather at my place. I think your braid is fantastic.

    Beeeautiful! Pastry dough is one of those things I’m totally in awe of. I’m impressed you attempted such a long recipe in the heat yesterday. Btw Planet Organic and Amaranth (both a bit of a drive for you I know) have fresh figs – I don’t think I’ve ever had one before but now I’m addicted! CHers in California are discussing fig trees in their yards *swoon*

    It was so hot yesterday I took the kids out to pick a few strawberries that had ripened and they melted in my hands. I’m just sorry I didn’t plant more. The big white-tipped strawberries at Superstore literally pale in comparison to the homegrown ones. I think we’ll be making more use of dee’s new book and hitting the road to some U-picks this summer :)

    Ooo… the braids look so professionally done. And your idea for a goat-cheese, fig filling sounds so elegant and classy. Way to go on your first DB challenge! Can’t wait to see what next month has in store :)

    I ate the rest of the Danish this morning for breakfast and it was fabulous! It pays to know friends who can bake…and bake well! Yum! Thanks, Julie — and thanks for coming over last night. The boys are still talking about the bubbles that were shaped like ice cream cones. W. has friends for life!

    Welcome to your first official DB challenge! As I recall you dabbled with the cheesecake lollies, no?

    Great job! Goat cheese and fig is an inspired filling to be sure.

    I have my second braid in the oven right now – unfortunately it does not contain figs nor goat cheese. I’m so sad! Welcome to the group :)
