Tonight I finally made bread—real, wholegrain bread—from nada. It’s late now, but I had to try a little bit right out of the oven (hence the missing end). Oh man, was it good. It was quite the process, but, as people had told me, it’s very relaxing, and, as my roommate’s boyfriend said as he watched me punching the risen dough, it’s a good way to get your anger out. I followed my sister’s preferred recipe from the Tassajara Bread Book, using whole wheat flour, yeast, water, honey, olive oil, salt, and a little wheat germ, rolled oats, and corn meal for good measure. The house smells amazing and tomorrow I’ll be eating homemade toast for breakfast.
