Yesterday was my first day making bread out of "The Bread Baker's Apprentice". And it went better than expected. I followed the directions to the word. Timed everything just right...and TA-DA...bread ! John fell hard for it. He really loved it. The recipe made 2 loaves and before supper we had nailed the first one..just standing in the kitchen eating it with cheese...we were going to walk downtown to farmers market last night, but we were so in love with our bread, we decided we would rather spend the evening with it. So we hauled out the cast iron skillet and fried up some bacon, then sliced some of the jackpot tomatoes and had the best BLT's we had ever had. So last night it was just me and John and the bread. And we all had a good time. Wish you were here.


  1. OH K-the bread is glorious. Jeff made a loaf last night and we sat out in our screened porch and feasted on it with cheese and tomaotes, hummus, and mahamurra. YUM.

    The big hole in the living room wall brought us a little white-breasted nuthatch. We're trying to help him out the opening, but he is scared.



  2. Sounds like the same supper we had..but I wish I was with you in Maine on that beloved porch!

    Let me know about the litle birdie....


  3. Beautiful bread! Isn't Anadama the best? What a great way to start the BBA Challenge. I was hooked from the start.

    Glad you're joining us. You have a lot of evenings like that one to look forward to!

  4. Oh, I have been WANTING to learn how to bake my own bread. I am cheating right now and making beer bread with jalapenos and Mexican Cheeses in it.

    I love your writing on this post. I can't wait to go through your blog archives. I love finding new blog friends whose posts I immediately fall for!!!! Here's to many more comments on your future posts: CHEERS!

  5. Oooh, yum! I wanna slice...toasted with organic butter and a crumbling of fleur de sel...


Thank you so much for taking the time to stop by. I appreciate all your kind comments more than you can know.
