Yesterday after spending the afternoon with a dear friend of mine and her blessed children and then some... I was thinking how resourceful this woman is. I watched her move about her kitchen a great since of knowing. Here she was making loaves of homemade bread. Not one loaf but three. I thought WOW she makes a lot of bread at one time. Not only is she resourceful she is wise.
Later after I got home another good friend of mine caledl and I spoke to her about the bread thing and she said that it is more moist if you put a loaf in the freezer then let it thaw.
So, I got the bright idea last night that I would make 2 loaves of bread and .....You guess it.... FREEZE ONE!!
There, I am mixing ingredients according to the book the recipe was doubled But, of course, I could handle this.
After, it was done I marveled at my plan to become more time wise in making my bread....
I dumped the dough on the counter split the dough best I could down the middle and began to spread it out for the jelly roll.
BEAUTIFUL...... I set the timer for 20 mins of rise time then hit preheat on the oven and let the dough rise until the oven was nice and hot..
After my twenty mins were up.thedough had not gotten any bigger. I thought it must be cold in here..Well, I will just put them in the oven while it heats up and give them some warmth...(HAHAHAHAHAHA)
This is what I got.........Go ahead and laugh your TUSHIE off.....
I was so mad..That was 4 cups of flour wasted.....UUUrrrrrrggggggg.....Plus I don't even had a mill so, I am calling on my sissy (in-law) to give me flour....
All morning long, I was racking my brain trying to figure out what I did wrong and as I made some more dough this morning it dawn on me...
I FORGOT YEAST !!!!!
THE ONE THING IT NEEDS TO RISE!!!!!
DUH BRAIN FART!!!!!
