Fresh Bread...

ssshhhhhhh...don't tell Debbie but I think I've fooled her into making me homemade bread, and she even likes doing it...even down with the flu, I can't keep this to myself: This bread comes from dough that you make in advance and store in the fridge. Then when you want a loaf, you carve off a slab, let it sit for a bit, and pop it in the oven on a pizza stone. See this article from Mother Earth News if you want to try it out. The good thing is there is no need to knead...ha!! Also, there's only four simple ingredients; water, flour, yeast, and salt. I'm tempted to say that I can do that, but she might be reading this...
This all comes from a book entitled Artisan Bread in Five Minutes a Day...gotta get Debbie a copy :)Debbie's already on her second batch of dough...not that I'm advocating living on bread alone...

PS for those who asked, yes I do subscribe to Mother Earth News, but don't let that temper your "redneck" opinion of me :)
