Completely lost track of the day yesterday swapping around three rooms in the house. Ended up tossing Red Baron pizzas in the oven for dinner at 7:00.

There are few things more satisfying in life than a good, thick slice of warm bread made by your own hands.
I've also been copying Katie and using my bread machine just to make the dough; it keeps it at just the right temperature to rise. Then for the second rise, I shape the dough, heat a cup of water in the microwave, and let the dough do its second rise in there. Works great
