Not giving up

December 7, 2007

Journal, Lauren

I’m giving the no-knead bread another try. (Did I post the recipe before? If not, it’s here.) My friend Kate heard about my woes and she thinks I should re-name it Tragic Bread. (My house still smells funny from the plastic.) Anyway, I stuck a little more to the script this time, but I did swap out some whole wheat flour for the regular. I believe I may have solved my ‘how the heck is this going to stay warm in my freezing house’ problem. At least for four cold night hours – that’s how long a tea light lasts. Maybe Beth could give me a call at 2 a.m. to remind me to light a new one. I know she’ll be up.

what the heck?


In other news, I have a cold. We’re supposed to go to ukulele club Saturday night, but the weather’s supposed to be bad and I feel crummy. We’ll see how it goes.

    Couldn’t you just sleep with the dough? You could snuggle up against it under the covers or cradle it gently in your armpit. That would keep it warm.

      mmmmm…..armpit bread…..

        My armpit bread would have to be “Bloody Mary Bread”.
        (BTW: That’s a real recipe, try it next time Lauren.)

        Or if you want to send me your dough, I’ll sleep with it & cuddle it & in the morning we’ll have fresh baked bread!

    If you make a lot of this bread, you’ll need more tea lights. (The meaning of this comment will be revealed to you at a later time.)
