I made bread this weekend and made a very important discovery. Bread takes a long time to rise and so it is helpful to have other things to do while you wait. Well, I decided to run errands and it took me longer than I expected. So…when you leave bread too long to rise it gets kind of a crust over the top and the yeast takes on a slightly sourdough taste. It really was still edible, but not great. Really good for garlic toast–take a few slices, butter them, sprinkle a little bit of garlic salt, top with shredded cheese, and put it under the broiler. (We do this with the heels of bread as well.)
Tony has become a rather good photo man. This picture was from when we were in Germany a couple years ago. We were eating on this little back porch in a village.
This is the Japanese Lilac bush in our backyard. Ahh, spring. I can’t wait for your return!
I’m thinking I might have to get some chickens this spring…
