Just Starting Out…

Today I made my first loaf of bread in my adult life... I grew up with a father who baked bread at least once a week and I would help him out as a kid but I was little… and that was some time ago…

I wanted to make something to go with the french onion soup I'm making for dinner so I did a quick google search for some basic bread reciepes… 

I have yet to cut into the loaf (I'll have to wait until dinner for that) but it's looking pretty good so far…

 

Planning on a wheat loaf over the weekend.
