Was a couple of days late making this bread. Kept forgetting to make the sponge the night before and couldn't figure out the timing otherwise. I mean, what's the good of fresh bread if you have to bake it at 10 p.m. and don't get to taste it right away? Finally made it work on Thursday but didn't post the results. Then, about the time I'd forgotten all about it, the "leave your link" email arrived on the NEXT Tuesday. What? I inadvertently baked early? Still didn't post it though, so I'm back to being late. Sigh. One of these days I'll get it all together. Apparently there's a small child inside me who refuses to do things "on time". I'll give her a break. There are more important things in life.
|Katie, the elderly KitchenAid came through again.|
10 minutes kneading that dough without a complaint!
I love you, Katie.
|Should've watched the video. Was already shaping the dough|
when I realized that I didn't really understand the directions.
Was there supposed to be a hole?
|About as good as it's gonna get|
|Who has a special basket for letting bread rise?|
Not I, said the little red hen. Made do with a bowl.
It was fine.
|My inner child didn't want to|
make a checkerboard.
And didn't have
a razor blade.
|Finally, something was right!|
Oh yeah, I didn't win the lottery either. But I tried. I really want to go to San Fransisco and see this amazing art installation that'll be up until the end of February.
And something new in my life. Green Smoothies. Who knew? They're wonderful! I'm taking the Simple Green Smoothies 31-day Challenge for January. I feel so healthy. :-)
Finally, a shoe. Out on Pleasant Hill Road.
