What's Proofing

Here's a quick look at what's on the schedule for tomorrow's baking:

  • Sunday dinner bread (Biga prepped)

  • Biga for Daily bread (Biga prepped)

  • Pizza dough for calzones

  • Cranberry scones

It seems like a lot, but I should be able to knock the four loaves of bread (Sunday/Daily) at once, and the pizza dough will take about 15 minutes, and then into the fridge it goes!  The scones will be interesting, as it will be my first attempt at them...I think they'll be tasty!

I still need to figure out what to do with the giant bag of frozen cherries in my fridge...suggestions?

Baking Update

I know it has been quite some time since I updated with baking news, but I wanted to let all (three?) of you know, I BAKED this past weekend!

I ended up making some Italian bread (using a Biga) and some Cherry turnovers on Father's Day. (Hey, some dads want to relax and have a cold one, while I prefer making it nice and hot in the kitchen first).

I think both came out fairly tasty.

I think I'm going to tackle scones and sandwich bread this weekend...as I am craving one and needing the other.

Move successful!

So we survived the move! We are slowly adjusting to life back in our hometown. It is weird to se many things that I remember growing up either surrounded by new buildings or just missing.

    The stress of the new job and getting used to the new place has me a bit on edge. I'm hopping that in time, it will get better. I baked a few loaves of weekly bread on sunday and that was good. I plan on researching a new brew that I hope to start next week.

    Here's to making a new brew and continuing the BBA challenge!
