I have a goal of baking my way through the Artisan Breads Everyday book that my cousin gave me. This is the classic French bread. I may or may not have a sourdough starter on my kitchen counter. I say "may not" because I'm not sure if it's looking like it should. After a week of work on it, I'm a little worried.
This French loaf was super easy, though. Jason and I have been taking a hunk of bread, cheese, lunch meat and fruits & veggies for lunch this week and feeling very European. The best thing is that I made the dough on Sunday, and baked half then, and baked the other half last night. This way, we have fresh bread on multiple nights. And I dare say, I think the Tuesday night loaf turned out better. More time to rise in the fridge, I guess?
Up next in the bread baking extravaganza: English muffins. I'm just waiting on my little metal rings to come from Amazon!
