For the past few months, my daughter and I have tossed around the idea of the Year of the Pizza. The making of a pizza trips me up every time. My sister can make a delicious pizza with her eyes shut. But when I try it, the crust never cooks all the way through. If I leave it in long enough for the crust to cook, then the toppings burn. So making a pizza each 'month' for a year might help me get it right. But I kept putting it off and putting it off. My dad used to say....'when in doubt, back out'. So I didn't do it. Then all of a sudden, yesterday, as I was attempting a round loaf of bread, it hit me. We need to do a year of bread. I need to get the hang of this. So with much agreement in my spirit and from my daughter, we have decided to do a year of bread and post ONCE a month about our bread experience. Bread seemed to be more of a necessary thing to learn than pizza. Although, I have a feeling that getting the hang of bread will automatically give me the hang of pizza dough.
So, our bread journey will be posted once a month. If you have any suggestions or ideas please leave a comment. We need all the help we can get.
Let the baking begin!
Oh, and my sock update-ugh.....this pair of socks has caused me much stress. But I am almost done with them and will post a photo of them soon.
Until Next Time.
