Why is it, that it takes cold blustery weather to shake my attentions to making bread again? It’s not like I don’t appreciate great bread all the other weather flavors of the year.
While I love a slice of toast with my over easy breakfast year round, there is nothing like the shock of homemade soup to plunge our words into disrepair with the demand for broth dunking bread.
I propose a simple challenge: make one loaf of bread in the next week. I’m not even going to get all controlling and demand that you be monogamous to your homemade bread and forgo purchased breads. I’m not even going to push you to make a loaf during your busy work. I leave those edifications to you in time. I think one loaf is a good way to start.
Will you join me?
