well guess what's been rising for 24 hours. husband changed plans yesterday which changed plans for me.
so hoping I can punch it down now, let it rerise for 2 hours, then in the hot oven it'll go. oh heck, why don't I just put a pot and lid outside and then around 2 pm, it could just bake outside where yesterday it got to 113*.
Cookies didn't get baked off yesterday either so I'll do those today too plus ginger snaps will get made too for work friends tomorrow. Hum, do pralines come under the category of baking?

Started at 5:30 this morning with two loaves of NYT (1 round plain and 1 long with Italian herbs), then popped in the two pans of cinnamon rolls that I made last night and put in the fridge. The butter cream frosting was the best I ever made. I slowly mixed in the powdered sugar using a fork to mix ,and there was not a single lump to be found. Extra creamy and very delicious.

Just now finishing up baking the second batch of sandwich buns for a total of three dozen buns (2-1/2 oz. ea.). All this for the church festival which starts tonight at 6, and runs thru Sunday at 10 P.M.. I'll be making 3 dozen buns on Friday, Saturday and Sunday. DW was happy that the first batch made 19 buns so she could have one for her lunch sandwich. I love it when she rolls her eyes in delight as she bites into those buns just after they cool from the oven.

Call me the Dough Boy this weekend.

I messed up my pizza crust yesterday, forgot to put sugar in it.
It rose ok but seemed a little salty, so I stuck it in the fridge overnight.....
I'm going to caramelize some onions to put on top and make foccacia out of it.
Hope it works!
Not that there's anything wrong with that.....
