The meat about bread

I've found that the three part series on my bread recipe is maybe too cumbersome for even me and maybe a bit unnecessary based on what I've already written. If you really want to delve into the world of bread, I suggest this site: The Fresh Loaf. They give you the lessons on bread making here. Really, you can't beat it because there's everything you've ever wanted to know about bread making on that site AND a discussion forum.

Meanwhile, back at the ranch, we are dirt poor at the moment. It's probably why I haven't written anything- I've been just a tad blue. Yet, the one thing that perks me up is having to be really creative with the things I have one hand. Tomorrow, I will be making burgers, rolls, ketchup and possibly french fries (if I can manage the mandolin) from scratch.

The other thing I've done is created my very own cornbread recipe, which soon I will share. I purchased two bags of cornmeal two weeks ago and set off on making a version I enjoy. That's hard because I'm picky and so is my kid; the version I created is one we both approve (and doesn't send me to the hospital). I will be sharing that as soon as I can actually take photo of it. Seems the cornbread doesn't stick around long enough for a photo-op.
