Gosh, in my sporadic attendance I must have missed that one.

I baked Hamelman's Hazelnut and Fig with fennel seeds and rosemary yesterday. Turned out very nice, but I'll up the hydration next time. Today I'm just doing the normal Thursday stuff - preparing dough for Saturday's little bread shop and baking the gluten-free bread.

But Happy Solstice back at you. Hope you and Lucy are managing to stay cool (temperature, not attitude. We know you've got that aced).
