Now for the bread club-related part.

Today's lunch:

The third one from this last batch I froze as soon as it was cooled out of the oven. This bad boy was kept on the counter tightly warper in aluminum foil, then place in a cloth bread bag. The humidity made it soft. I crisped it up in a 300F oven unwrapped, for 12 minutes. Good as new!

Better than a sleeping pill! I have to spot eating this heavy.

You've got some skills! Looks fantastic but my cholesterol went up 20 points just looking at the pictures.

Have a great weekend with your family!
