oh bread man

I haven't been baking a lot of goodies as of late, so I apologize. I'm not sure why, but the only thing that's really been coming out of the oven is bread. I had a lot of wild yeast to use up (didn't feel like keeping it alive any more) and flour coming out of my ears. I think my ever rotating pile of flour has grown to almost 10 types. Eesh. The above wild yeast, sourdough loaf was so good it disappeared in a matter of one day. I swear fresh bread is like a sickness...it just eats at you. "Chris, cut a slice. Oh come back for more, get out the jam too, I can hear it calling from the fridge. Don't eat just a bit, call over that smoked meat while you are in the kitchen, maybe get the mustard out too."

Lol...my bread calls to me as well. Glad to know I'm not the only one. Your bread looks really yummy. Guess you'll be making a new starter for the BBA Sourdough breads.

It's so nice to have fresh bread Cathy. It's a bit of heaven. Thanks. I'd never dusted with semolina either, so that was a first with this loaf. Yes, a new starter it is. At least I had good success in making my first, so hopefully it goes the same.

There's one reason why I definitely should not learn how to make bread! I wouldn't be able to resist either.

OMG did you bake that!??! That looks amazing!!! I want to cut it open and make it into a soup bowl and fill it with some delicious soup.

A big soup bowl indeed. I gotta say, that would make for a great meal. I haven't done it with these loaves yet, but I have hollowed them out for various fillings (spinach dip etc.).

Maybe time to experiment with chowder, or chili..Ideas, ideas
