I really enjoy Loretta's company. She's very worldly, and I learn things from her all the time. She's also an awesome quilter, baker and conversationalist. Monday I had the pleasure of going to her house to learn how she makes bread. She has brought several loafs of her artisan bread to my boys - and they absolutely go nuts over it. Sometimes I think they'd rather her for a cook than me, but then I make something out of this world and they come back to me. It's a good thing.
The bread we (well mostly she) made comes from a book "Artisan Bread in Five Minutes a Day", it's a great book and Loretta certainly has mastered it! The recipe we used was the Master Recipe: Boule on page 26. Here's a few pictures of the fruits of our labor! That's Loretta taking the bread out of the oven.
That's all I've got for creative endeavors today....I'm tired and a little on the brain dead side. My husband tossed and turned and tossed and turned and tossed and turned for hours and hours last night....and needless to say it took me about 2 or more hours to go to sleep. Since I went to bed at 11:30 - fell asleep around 1:30 and awake at 6:59...I'm feeling the need for a nap or two this afternoon! TTFN and thanks for visiting!
