Holiday Price Gouging at Orwasher's

I'm in shock (and miffed with myself) that I paid $8.50 at my farmer's market to Orwasher's for their size "small" challah. When I commented, "really?!", Keith's father, who sells at our market, said, "you wouldn't believe what goes into that bread! It's at least two pounds!". (It weighs in at 1.35#.) I used to be a pro pastry chef, but you don't have to have been anything to know that challah has eggs and at this time, some raisins; and yes, some challahs do have two rises. I hope it's going to be a good bread, but that mystery ingredient vis a vis "you wouldn't believe what's in that bread" may be none other than the capitalist tool: "holiday highway robbery". (Think how much you pay for a dozen roses on Valentine's day.) I'm stewing that I bought it. Bah, humbug and feh.
