Sukkot 5772: Herbed Challah

I love my garden, and I'm having a hard time accepting that the season is growing to a close.  My herbs, however, are still going strong.  For Sukkot, I kneaded in some fresh rosemary and oregano (I grow the flat leaf variety) along with some Trader Joe's garlic powder (my garlic powder of choice... it's like salt in our bayit). You can use any dough you like, but I recommend something basic. The possibilities here are endless... other herbs, parmesan, roasted garlic. I knead in after rise, before braiding/coiling, but you could definitely do this pre-rise.  I love going from garden to loaf (with washing, of course!)  Yum!
