I’m attempting to make bread.
I spent a fair amount of time on Monday and Tuesday making cookies, and they turned out all right. Today I am trying to make bread. So far, it’s looking much as it should – I think – but it’s been so long since I’ve made bread, and this particular bread recipe, that I’m not really sure.
As a result, I’ve decided to do this loaf I’m currently working on, and maybe two more this afternoon. I used to make bread every other week when I lived in Washington, DC, for communion, and this habit has escaped from me. It used to be a relatively easy process and almost-second-nature. Now I’m reading the recipe carefully, and obsessing about every small change. It’s not so good.
If the bread turns out all right, though, I may try to make challah for dinner with , , and whoever tomorrow night. We’ll see how it goes.
