Baking is Bliss…

I spent an afternoon in bliss…in my kitchen…kneading dough!  For the first time, I tried my hands at homemade french bread.  To be honest, I had no idea what I was doing.  All I had was a book that my mother bought me this past April.  I read and studied the pictures in this bread bible, in the hopes that something would wear off onto me, suddenly transforming me into a topnotch baker.  Of course that did not happen.  But I will tell you what did…

I made delicious baguettes! They might have been a little bit mis-shaped, but they were yummy to devour.  I spread some locally made soft blue cheese across them and poured myself a glass of nice red wine.  It was a perfect night.  

All in all, bread was extremely therapeutic and enjoyable to make.  This will surely not be my last.
