Today is bread day.
I’ve been turning ideas over in my head for dinner Sunday evening, which should bring four to five people to the table, with a sixth joining in after working late. I had picked Sunday as the start of The Challenge, so coming up with something tasty, nutritious, but not budget busting is in order. To help myself think more clearly, I’ve had some ice cream for breakfast. One thing that occurred to me while I was melting the ice cream a bit in order to get it down was that I hsould make some bread.
“Hey!” I said to myself. “You should make some bread, since you mentioned the pricing on your site.”
So, if I can find my loaf pans, I’ll be making some honey wheat bread, and perhaps some cinnamon bread as well. The nice thing about making bread is that there are preiods where you do nothing. The dough has to rise, after all. I love bread, although I can’t really eat any at the moment. The aroma of rising dough and then baking bread perfuming the house is delectable and comforting, and that smell is one for which I have a great deal of fondness.
Since Costco does not sell whole wheat flour at all, whether in 25 pound bags or 50, nor yeast, a trip to Publix is in order. We’ll just see how much cash one has to lay out for ingredients to make a couple loaves of bread, shall we?
More to come.
