After having relative success with baking a loaf of homemade bread last week, I was excited to see Jen at Beauty and Bedlam post a v-log and recipe for homemade French Bread. I decided to give it a try, following her recipe but halving it in order to make just one loaf. (I didn’t want to waste the ingredients in case it didn’t turn out well. Oh me of little faith!!) I also don’t have a Kitchen Aid mixer, so I did all of the kneading by hand. If I did this every day, I’d be able to take some one down in arm wrestling!
Would you believe that this was even better than the bread I made last week! It was so delicious and not at all difficult to bring together. Now I just need to buy stock in flour and yeast and I’ll be set!
In the interest of keeping it real: while I was typing this post, I realized that a chicken breast I was boiling for supper had been cooking away on the stove for an indeterminate amount of time and may now be too rubbery to eat. A gentle reminder that I still have a long way to go in becoming a true Suzy Homemaker!
I’ll be back later today with my grocery savings post!
Shred the chicken breast and make quesadillas or something. 🙂
My grandmother used to say that kneading bread was a great stress relief. You got to pound something that you were supposed to.
That looks delish! I'm sure you can use that chicken in some numerous things – chicken chili, casseroles. 😀
