ON THE BACK BURNER

July 1

I haven't been happy with my bread making since I came to PT. I know how to make bread. For a grandson's Bar Mitzvah I baked challah's for each table. I should know what a good dough looks like and how a perfect loaf of bread bakes and tastes. None of that was happening here in PT. I had an epiphany moment the other day. I have been buying store brand , generic flour. $1.99  for unbleached white flour, 5 lb. bags. It has to be the flour. So I upped the anti. Bought  King Arthur brand unbleached, white flour. 5 lb bag for $6.99 . Made my usual  3 Challahs for the kids for their Shabbat and then I made 16 sandwich rolls for my son and grandson's lunches for the week. It was the flour! All of the loaves came out like they were supposed too and I feel vindicated . Now I can stop complaining about my bread and just get on with baking . What a relief.

Don't quite know how this got to me but it was on the top line of my computer (not in email) But I really enjoyed it. I truly admire you.

Everything sounds so wonderful Leona. Venice will seem boring . I would want to move to Portownsend where the kids are living. All sounds great . Is there?
