Merry Christmas, All

There's a sourdough batard and boule fermenting on the counter; should be ready to go into the oven in an hour or so.  Just the thing to go with the ravioli soup that's simmering in the crock-pot in anticipation of the last of our travelers arriving this evening.  We'll give them a day to decompress before doing the big Christmas dinner tomorrow.


Wishing all of you a very merry Christmas and a happy New Year with your families and friends.

A quiet day here, as guests are coming tomorrow. But we had BBA cinnamon rolls for breakfast:



And I'm making up some pizza dough to retard overnight for a pizza party with family tomorrow. Fun!

are an excellent start for the Christmas morning! What a great aroma to wake up to!! I made them on Saturday and retarded in the frige. They came out very moist and flakey ( I had my concerns to retard for 2 days!) and glazed them with cream cheese frosting left over from our main dessert, carrot cake.   HO, HO, HO....yum

Happy Holidays to all!!
