Wednesday,Does anyone want bread?

     Yesterday afternoon, I was sitting in the family room finishing the inside of a bridesmaid dress and mom asked what was for dinner.  I told her chicken enchiladas, she wrinkles her nose up, so I said how about spaghetti?  She says that was okay.  So I flip flopped the menu and pulled the frozen sauce out of the freezer.  Then I started the french bread and I don't know what I was thinking but my french bread recipe makes two large loaves.  I doubled the water and yeast then when I saw the mixture it was like soup.  So I ended up adding another 7 cups of flour and more salt.  Thank goodness my bosch mixer can hold that amount.  I went downstairs to continue working while the dough raised not thinking that the mixer was too full.  So 45 minutes later I go upstairs to the bread that took over the house.  What a mess. I had bread dough all over the counter and machine.  I should have taken a picture, but my hands were so sticky.

     Oh course the shop bell rings and I go racing down covered in sticky dough, with hands up like a surgeon.  My client was an Iranian man picking up a suit.  I could not open the door or help him.  He had to help himself.  He was so amazed that I was making bread.  More like you are woman who actually cooks?  See what other cultures think of us Americans?  Anyway I segue, back up stairs I managed to get the loaves on the pans, thank goodness again that I have two ovens.    While the bread took it's second raising I cleaned up the kitchen.  It was the sticky kitchen from hell I tell you. Finally the bread goes into the oven and I put the water on to boil for the pasta, tossed a salad, the sauce was heated through, and the kitchen was back to normal.  However I was a flippin mess.  Now what am I going to do with 4 HUGE loaves of french bread?

     Luckily one of the dance mom's stopped by with 4 of my boys, who all needed minor alterations on their costumes.   They had just left a 2 hour class and were sweaty and tired and starving. Great two loaves of bread and a jar of peanut butter later they were off and satiated.  Miss Kim saved their poor starving little lives.  I will be having brinner for dinner tonight, to use up the stale french bread:)

     Well I have to go pick up a perscription and get a few fresh groceries today.  I was able to get my quota of sewing done yesterday and I have plenty to for today and tomorrow and ........


Have a great and productive day staying positive while you are in the negative.

Kim

  2. I wish I had come to your house. Wish I lived closer to you, also. Maybe Anne and I could make a road trip just to "drop by." It really is awful to make mistakes like that!
