Today have been baking. Well, the baking’s happening now. Before there was the mixing, the proving, the waiting for loaves to rise. Now the baking smell is beginning to permeate the house. Mmm!
The leaven arrived all dried up and I had to rehydrate it. I read the rehydrating and refreshing instructions like they were holy words. I was so convinced after everything I’d mess it up. But I didn’t!
I fed it and mixed it and named it Lemmy and left it in E’s room, which is way warmer than the rest of the house. It’s been a learning process and I really have this sense of accomplishment. I can only hope the bread tastes as good as it smells!
