I've got a couple loaves of white bread and a loaf of multi grain bread rising on the back of the stove,
And a loaf of banana bread in the oven.
I don't know what's come over me.
More to the point,
I don't know why I haven't been baking, really, lately.
I think when one gets out of practice, one forgets how much (non) work is involved in making a loaf of bread.
I mean, really, with the Kitchen Aid standing mixer and instant yeast?
You throw all the ingredients into the bowl, let it mix/knead for about 10 minutes and stick it at the back of the counter to rise.
Of course, I shouldn't be broadcasting how easy a loaf of white bread is...
The flip side to that is that if there's fresh bread and butter for supper and fresh bread toast for breakfast, they might overlook any number of things that might go undone.
I need to get back into the habit, is what I'm saying.
Now for those cooked apples that need sieving into sauce. Won't some of that be good with the pork chops for supper?
I think yes.
