Today is "bread baking" day. I've been trying to reprogram myself to do the baking and things that use a lot of oven time on the weekends (we're on "time of use" electricity now). By working the hours the team in Poland works, I can be done with my work day and only use one hour of peak power instead of 5. So far today--loaf of whole wheat bread. I have 60% whole wheat kaiser rolls on the go right now. Hope to make some pita pockets and some tortillas. That will give me some variety and I can put the rolls, pitas, and tortillas in the freezer. I am also going to grill some chicken breasts so that I can have chicken salad wraps or pitas or on a kaiser roll during the week. In between, we're getting the last of the garden in.

Kaiser rolls are out of the oven. Appearance wise, they are the nicest looking ones I've made. I don't have a kaiser cutter, so I fold them the old fashioned way (I tried the knot-and-tuck method metioned on the King Arthur web site--I didn't like it as well as the -pinwheel folding method. Now to pop the pita bread in the oven. Then it's nap time. Decided the tortillas can be next weekend's Saturday afternoon cooking adventure. Wish I had a card for my camera so I could share the kaisers with you. Oh, I didn't use poppy or sesame seeds. When I flipped them to raise, I sprinkle some coarse sea salt on the parchment paper. I was thinking "big, baked pretzel" for my burgers...

Just finished a batch of whole wheat flour choc chippers. Makes for a little bit less guilt. Love them cookies!

I love baking too and wish I could bake something every single day! Today I am making the time to bake up some yellow cupcakes with chocolate frosting.
