I'm on a total power trip. I rushed through it (as much as you can rush through bread) and... dun dun dun DUN... I made BREAD!!! I did it!!!
I had my oven up too high, so the outside got a little too crispy, but Sam said he prefers it like that... He says it makes it "real-er"... The interesting thing was that my recipe called for 1/2 tsp of honey, so I used some of that really strong stuff I bought at the outdoor market in Haute-Savoie that first weekend we were here and the bread REALLY tastes like it. It's all earthy and planty. I LOVE it!!!
Um... I MADE BREAD!!! Did I mention that?
I just feel like I totally stuck it to the man!!! Even the organic bread-selling man at the market who charged me 5 Euros for his loaf... I spent maybe .75 and made TWO LOAVES with it. So THERE!!! Think about how much money we're gonna save now that I'm gonna make all of our bread!!!
The bread so convinced Sam that he took me out shopping for a food thermometer and a cooler so I can try to make yogurt tomorrow!! YAY!!! Stay tuned and chew on these pix:
