Mother Nature can be such a tease. Smack dab in the middle of our cold and snowy winter,
up pops a sunny, windless, 70-degree, go-outside-without-a-jacket, take-pictures-without-gloves,
drink-a-beer-on-the porch kind of Saturday. I needed that.
Lucy must sense the approaching spring. She's getting ready to put the moves on George,
who, of course, will ignore her, sweet and innocent boy that he is.
Earlier in the week when it was still winter, I baked my favorite bread recipe
in a cast iron dutch oven, instead of my usual way on a pizza stone.
There's no going back. The loaf plopped right out of the pot.
If you weren't around when we baked bread together back in 2010,
here's the link to making the 3-ingredient no-need-to-knead dough,
and another link on how to bake it the next day.
If I can bake bread, anybody can bake bread. Try it. It will lift you out the winter doldrums. Promise.
Here's a link to the dutch-oven method using the same recipe. (Thanks, Clair!)
