on a whim i decided i wanted fresh baked bread with my caesar salad dinner tonight, so i went on a search, the internet wide and couldnt find many recipes that were not for bread machines (which i dont have yet, and i cant get here) so i headed to the library and found some really neat books, ones with recipes and ones that explain how bread works, so i got a few books, and headed to the grocery store. got my herbs and came home and made my bread. The book i used was World Breads From Pain De Campagne to Paratha great recipes. my bread wasnt pretty. but i am a beginner bread maker so i forgive myself. it tasted good though. so i am happy. and tonight we had good bread and good salads. today was good.
