One of the items on my Christmas list was a digital kitchen scale. I must have mentioned it to the right people, because I wound up with two! The one that I will keep is a Salton model, which has metric and English units, and the ability to tare additional quantities. It has already seen duty with a batch of Eggshell Rolls from Bernard Clayton's Complete Book of Breads.
Other baking this week has included a batch of basic sourdough bread from BBA, and a batch of cinnamon buns (the sticky bun version), also from BBA. Amazing how easy it is to work baking into the schedule when the schedule doesn't include a daily stint at the office! Vacation is a wonderful concept. I may get around to making some scones and, then again, I may not. Either way, it's been a satisfying week for baking.
