Yesterday was a perfect day for a walk on the road.
We always meet neighbours and get caught up on the local news.
Today it is icy and miserable outside; a good day to bake bread.
Mary started the dough preparations yesterday and today we were up at 5 am getting the dough ready for baking.
We bake our loaves in cast iron pots which helps retain the moisture. Lids are removed for the last 15 minutes to brown the tops.
Not only do they look delicious but they fill the house with such wonderful aroma.
We also did a focaccia loaf but by the time you read this it will have disappeared.
Time for an early lunch of salad and fresh warm homemade bread.
