1st bread

Finally was able to make my first loaf of bread in over 3 months.  Well at lease since we were up at Mary G's taking CanukJim's bread and wood fired oven class.  Made his Potato, chive cheddar bread in the WFO this weekend.  We have been firing it up and making pizza for the last three weeks, people started calling it the pizza oven.  Had to show them that it could make more than just pizza.

So the menu was a goat cheese in tomato basil sauce served with pita's

The potato Chive and cheddar bread

Roasted chicken

Roasted spaghetti squash with cherry tomatos and feta cheese

All of this was cooked in the wood fired oven.  Unfortunetly only got a picture of the bread.  Over all it was good.  The oven was a tad to hot and I thought I could control the timing.  It came out a bit dark and sounded like a rock when first out.  After a 1/2 hour rest though the crust was soft, the crumb was a bit soft but the flavor was outstanding.  Here it is just out of the oven.  Will try to get a crumb shot next time we cut one open.  Good thing about the WFO is we have to accept we will eat burned food for awhile and we have to keep trying to get it right.
