I really don’t know what I do with my time. I need to work on that! You know I had so much more going on in Texas and rarely did a week go by that I didn’t make bread at least once. I can’t even remember the last time I made bread! I can’t even remember the last time I fed my sourdough and that’s so bad. Today! I am going to feed the sourdough today.
At least three weeks ago I made English Muffins. I froze some and kept some on the fridge. Last week, I finished those. I’ve been using the street taco size flour tortillas that I picked up when I got groceries Sunday. Every day I say I’m going to make bread . . and I don’t.
Today is tomato soup and toasted cheese sandwiches for dinner. I HAD to make bread yesterday or go to the store and who wants storebought bread? Not me! I wanted English Toasting Bread and this is the recipe I’ve used for years. It’s so easy (no kneading – just use the mixer. Even on a day when my kitchen was cold, this bread rose quickly.
Funny story: I sleep with the heat on 60 or 62, or sometimes 61. I don’t have a wifi thermostat so as I’m passing by the thermostat to go to bed, I just tap it a few times and where ever it ends up, just so it’s below 63 and above 58, I’m good. Vince . . not so much . . but he isn’t here. When I get up in the morning, I usually raise the temp to about 65. Yesterday afternoon, even after making the bread, I thought . . it’s cold in this house. It was probably 2 p.m. and I looked at the thermostat. Still 60. No wonder I was cold.
The cool temp in the house helped the bread cool down so I could slice it and make sure it was tasty. I usually won’t eat the end piece but this bread is so good that I don’t even mind eating the end.
Thanks to Boots for waking me before 5 a.m., you can see on the clock on the stove that before 8 a.m., the soup was made except for the cream and basil. The litter box is cleaned, both critters are fed, the kitchen is clean and the carpets are vacuumed.
I’ll be in my chair stitching if anyone needs me! 🙂
