This book arrived in the post early last week and after reading it from cover to cover we finally made our first loaf of bread yesterday, and i can promise you that it is as EASY as it sounds and it tastes yum. Here is my very first loaf just before it went into the oven.
All you do is mix 4 ingredients together just until they are well combined then leave it in your container for at least 2 hours then you put it in the fridge and when you feel like fresh bread you cut a chunk of dough work it into a ball (this takes about 1 minute) no Kneading let it rest for a little while and then bake it. Presto. Fresh yummy bread. The dough will keep in the fridge for 14 days so whenever you feel like fresh bread just go to you fridge.
Earlier in the week I made this little thank you book for one of the teachers where I work as he fixed my laptop. This man always buys a choc milk everyday at the canteen so i pre paid about 20 choc chills and then made up a pile of little vouchers that he can rip out and exchange for a drink. It was something different and I think that he was pleased. Although I should have told all of my staff as they were a bit surprised when said teacher presented one of these at the counter. Now they have to see each day what stamp I put on each voucher. :) small minds!!!!
This morning Joe and I bottled our first batch of ginger beer, I hope it turns out and i hope that it is as good as i remember it (most things aren't unfortunately). The book where i got this recipe from also has a recipe for homemade lemonade so on the holidays I will be giving that a go.
I also finished Caitlin's ball album and will post a couple more photos later in the week of the finished product.
Sorry about the small photos but I had a lot i wanted to show you and some more which wouldn't fit in this post so that will have to wait for another day.
I hope you all have a good week ahead.
