I should know better!

  Yesterday I made a classic mistake by not being patient with a loaf of bread that would've been delicious if I had just given it enough time proofing!

Sorry about the demise of your loaf.  Picture a friend patting you on the back and sympathetically murmuring, "There, there; you'll do better next time."

And it was a recipe that I have been making for 25 years. but I was preoccupied by holiday cookie baking. And I just was not giving the loaf the love and attention it needed. So I posted this a a reminder to myself as to what happens you are watching the clock rather than the dough !

 I feel very silly/embarrassed/ashamed when I make careless  careless mistakes and the loaf doesn't come out perfect!  I have been eating it toasted for breakfast

it cures (nearly) all ills.  Of course, I've never done anything like that myself ...
