Today my assistant (E) and I made French Bread as a possible fair entry in the “yeast loaf—white” category.
Here is our finished product….
This was good. It was crusty on the outside, but not so chewy that your jaws were getting a work out. Nice and soft on the inside. It would have been great buttered but I stuck with plain since I’m counting calories and each one matters! I got two loaves out of the batch. I brushed olive oil on top before baking and on this one I sprinkled a little kosher salt on top. The Mr. liked the salt on top but I would probably leave it off next time because I thought it was too salty. I think is a contender for a fair entry.
In other news, look who got their new glasses today….
They took this of themselves while I was making dinner. They are pretty pleased with their new specs. 🙂
Don’t know what is up for tomorrow’s baking. E wanted to try out some brownies but I don’t know if I have enough cocoa powder for that.
