Baking today

Nothing terribly interesting baked today. A couple of loaves of my poolish French bread.

And a large sourdough miche-like loaf.

The French bread stales quickly, so we ate it tonight and will finish it tomorrow. I think the miche will be better after a day or two anyway, so we'll crack it open tomorrow evening or the next day.

Floyd: what does Miche mean?

If you look in http://www.wordreference.com/fren/Miche you will see that in French this word means "large round bread" or "buttock" and in Swiss it means "small bread".
