My new schedule means that my weekend doesn’t start til Sunday (school tonight and working tomorrow night)…so I’m just forging on! Last night at school we didn’t get out til 12:15! I was so tired that I wasn’t even tired anymore…like on my 50th wind. And….my three loaves of bread I made completely FLOPPED because the salt hit the yeast too soon in the mixing bowl. Yeah..sucky, right? I had to throw all my bread away because it didn’t proof at all and looked like a flat stone in the oven. I guess it happens to everyone 🙁 My pizza and whole wheat pitas turned out though!! I made more of a vegetable flatbread with my pizza dough, piling on tomatoes, onions, sun dried tomatoes, olives and red bell pepper. Drizzled with olive oil and sprinkled with oregono and hot pepper flakes! It’s totally going to be my lunch today! And the pitas we made are HUGE, as you can see!!! We baked both the pizzas and the pitas directly on the hearth of the oven and the pitas puffed up like balloons. I was excited to see that we were using a recipe that called for whole wheat flour although I haven’t tried them yet.
This morning for breakfast I ate the rest of the box of Nature’s Path granola (about 1 cup) that had been sitting in my pantry for awhile. I had it with a banana and a cup of hempmilk.
I’m pretty much enjoying just lounging about in my bed and drinking my tea right now….tonight is my first practical (we have three) of the class. I am making baguettes and white pan bread (the soft, sweet milky bread I made earlier in the week). I’m a little anxious after my failure last night!
