So I came upon a book about bread at The Chef's Gallery called Artisan Bread in 5 Minutes a Day.
It's like $30 there, so I think, I'll check it out on Amazon. Ends up being a 2 week wait. So I am poking around on the author's website and blog and it looks so stinkin' good, I start looking all around for another online place to order. End up going with B&N, I think - anyway - That's the power of a good blog and when you can't drive anymore - thank the good technological lord that we have e-commerce!
So I have made the "boule" and also the "olive oil bread." We had friends over on Saturday night and I made pizzas. And I quote "This is the best meal I have ever had here! Like this is even better than some of the fancy pizza places in town..." Well, that can be taken a variety of ways ;) but, I chose to take it as a supreme compliment!
I made BBQ Chicken, Quattro Formaggi, and good old Pepperoni for the little guys. Of course I was so busy making them, I did not take pics. But they looked great - just like the fancy wood fire grill places!
In the fall, the authors are publishing a "healthy" bread book. I have pre-ordered (and I never do that...)
Off to volunteer with Max's summer camp tomorrow. Our bus company is letting me tag along on the bus. I think Max is still little enough where we can get away with this being "cool." We are going to the local swimming hole. Max informs me that he would prefer I do not swim. HAH! Like I am puttin' on a bathing suit in front of a bunch of 9 year olds!! Wish me luck!
