bread & opaw

Finally I have gotten around to uploading a bunch of the photos that have been sitting on my much hated camera. So welcome to my gallery of bread!

This was my first attempt at Jim Lahey's No Knead bread recipe on Thanksgiving. It came out really well but did not rise as high as I had hoped.

This was my second and much more successful attempt. Look at the gorgeous cracking on the topcrust!

Here is a side view. I think you can see the airiness of the texture. It makes a wonderfully chewy interior balanced with the shardy crust.

And here is today's Irish Soda Bread.

Like an idiot I forgot to add the caraway seed, but I am really happy with it. It's dense and slightly sweet with a nice crust.

And here's Opaw in a box, just because.

Opaw is a tomato.

I like cats in boxes the way cats like boxes :-)
