Prepared ready for the oven apple crisp
All baked and ready to eat with a bit of ice cream
Risen ready to be punched down and split
One of four delightfully golden loaves
Two loaves sliced and ready to eat with pasta yum
The peasant bread was fantastic. I was a bit hesitant to make 2 batches but I figured how bad could it be? I'm exceedingly glad I did, as there wouldn't be any left for dinner tonight if I hadn't. The bread is some of the best I've ever made, and I intend to make another double batch Saturday morning to go with dinner Saturday and Sunday nights. I figure if I repeat that the next week or so we can really enjoy fresh bread with most of our meals, and it will keep me busy in the mornings after the husband leaves for work. I've been trying to get another hour or so rest after he takes off at 4 am but it just doesn't work. Once I'm up well that is pretty much it. Today I managed another hours sleep, but that required a half hour hot shower and about 2 hours of staring at the ceiling before I drifted off. Mixing bread and rising it seems like a good use of that time instead.
