I made bread today. There's really nothing quite like it - I think it's probably the best thing in the world to cook.
You get 10 minutes of vigorous exercise kneeding the dough, and god knows I need all the exercise I can get these days!
You get to wait whilst a living being creates the air bubbles in your dough, making it twice the size. Making bread is a biological and chemical experiment!
You get the most fabulous smell as it cooks.
And finally, you get to sit with your wife around the breakfast bar stuffing your faces with freshly cooked bread that you just cooked to perfection. Deeeelicious.
We even took pictures!. The "turtle" is my wife's design. She should be teaching kindergarten not high school, dontcha think?
