My Wife is Very Very Good to Me

My wife was very good to me on my birthday (Dec. 18).  She gave me a copy of The Taste of Bread.  What an amazing book.  I had borrowed a copy of it from the local library and had started reading it, sorta' rushing through the science to get to the baking.  Now I can take my time reading while I am out for the Christmas break (I teach high school drafting).  Right no there is a 70% hydration French dough in its primary fermentation.  I'll let y'all know how it turns out!

Hi, fatdog.

What a happy birthday present! I'm guessing that your kind wife expects this gift to have consequences. ;-)

You better watch out!  That is how my library of bread books started.  It sounds like she got you hooked good.  Enjoy the obsession, oops I mean hobby.
