I have been making a loaf of crusty artisan bread for my family every day. I hope you imagined me saying that as nonchalantly as possible. Like it’s just part of my daily routine after airing the sheets.
So I’m not airing my sheets. yet. But I am pulling out a loaf of fresh, chewy-on-the-outside, soft and steamy-in-the-middle artisan bread from my oven every evening. Do you know my secret? I’m sure one or two of you do. If you’re not among the privileged few, stick around and I will reveal all.
We’re headed out of town today to see family, and one of my favorite things to do every time we get together with the fam is make for them my newest discoveries in the kitchen. Last time it was huevos rancheros, this time I’ll make bread. And one or two other things. I’ve never blogged from the road before, but am taking my macbook along and hoping for the best.
I’m super excited, because on the way to Idaho we’re stopping by Utah, and I am finally, finally, finally getting to Tai Pan, and I don’t plan to leave the store until I’m stocked with every dish I need to host a full dinner party. Any suggestions for must-have dinner party ware? I don’t want to forget anything. Oh, and any places I should see in upper Utah and lower Idaho?
I hope your weekend is great and full of signs of spring, for those of you in the northern hemisphere, and I hope to see you soon.
