I need this sign on my oven control panel!
Normally I make two loaves of bread on Thursday or Friday. One loaf lasts through the week for us and one loaf goes back with Chad on Sunday. For some reason, we’ve used a whole loaf since I made the bread on Thursday. There’s still a full loaf for Chad to take back but I decided to make one loaf of whole wheat bread this morning. I figured that would get us through Thursday (we’ll have rolls on Thanksgiving Day) and then I’ll make white bread on Friday because we like that for turkey sandwiches.
Ground the wheat, made the bread, let it rise, stuck it in the oven but since we were fixing to eat lunch, I figured I’d just get the bread out when lunch was over and didn’t set the timer. Nope . . got up from the table and went downstairs, added borders to a quilt, quilted a quilt, trimmed the quilt. Came upstairs two hours later to a very burnt loaf of bread.
Poor Vince. He’s trying to make me feel better and he said “Oh, that’s how I like it! Real crusty!” Real crusty alright! He tried to get me to eat a piece. No way. I have a temporary crown that has to stay on another 10 days or so. I doubt my dentist would understand how eating a piece of bread knocked that temporary crown off.
Ground more wheat, made more bread, let it rise.
Put it in the oven. Timer is set.
Timer goes off.
Bread is done and comes out of the oven right on time.
Yep, from now on, I’m setting the timer and not relying on my memory!
