Lately I've been looking for new ways to save money. I'm having a great time going through my budget and trying to figure out how I can get the most bang for my buck.
One of the things I've decided to do is try to reduce the number of items I have to buy in stores. I don't think I'll be outside trying to milk a cow anytime soon (and unfortunately there are no sheep within shearing distance of me), but I can try to produce more of the simple items I have to pay for.
Bread baking was my Rubicon because bread required Yeast. I simply wasn't going to cross that bridge again; I've never succeeded. Those gassy, unicellular creatures have never cooperated with me.
Yeast is SCARY.
But I'm cheaper than I am afraid.
So, here we go. I pulled The Joy of Cooking and read through the recipe.
Then I pulled Alton Brown's website, read through his instructions, and steadied myself. I could do this.
To the Kitchen!!! I measured everything carefully, reread the recipe and got started.
This looks promising.

I do believe this looks like bread.
It slices like bread. It takes like bread.
I'm going to eat the hell out of this, like bread.

Umm...I was drunk. Drunk on success. And passed out from the pure carb overload.
