I have been having a wonderful time baking bread lately. I am using the Artisan Bread in Five Minutes a Day book and loving it. Tonight I baked a couple of boules, made chicken parmigiana, pasta, and salad but never got past taking a picture of the bread. I started eating and forgot all about the camera. Oh well.
These loaves are crusty, chewy, and have a dense crumb --I have to be careful not to eat the whole loaf. I put these loaves too close together and they merged, but they still tasted great. Next: baguettes.
