I jumped on the Artisan Bread in 5 Minutes a Day bandwagon last weekend and we've been enjoying fresh baked bread around here. We're both excited about all of the bread possibilities this book brings. There's not much else that I can add to the conversation that's been going on about this book here, here, and here, so just enjoy the pictures! I do have a little warning though: glass pyrex dishes are not safe at 450 degrees! I had one shatter in the oven yesterday while I was baking the bread. The book says to use a broiling pan with one cup of water to add steam to the cook time. I thought my pyrex dish would be a good substitute for our non-existent broiling pan, but it definitely wasn't!
Have I ever mentioned how lucky I am that Jon enjoys cooking so often? Well, I am! He put together this tasty bowl of udon noodles with tofu, scallions and mushrooms last night. Now, if only Jon also had a burning passion to do the laundry...he'd be 100% perfect (sadly, neither of us enjoy this task)!
Our first tulips have finally bloomed! They've been slowly creeping up this spring and they finally made their debut this morning. I'm so happy that all the money we spent on them at the tulip farm last summer didn't go to waste. So far 4 have bloomed, only 96 more to go!
And I so wasn't joking about only knitting dish cloths from now on. I stocked up on the sugar n cream cotton yarn this weekend, and I should have enough to use throughout the summer while I'm sitting outside and enjoying the weather. Now, we just need to put our hammocks up in the backyard and we'll be all set!
