A Quick Bread Post

 

Taking a bit of a break this week to talk briefly about bread.  Small note at the end about NOLA Boy.

I’m still having no luck in getting my sourdough bread mojo back, but I did manage this more conventionally-shaped loaf of French bread.

I had tried it about a week or so ago using the Zojirushi bread machine on the French Bread setting, and let it bake directly in there.  ACK!  The paddles stuck in the bread and refused to budge for well over two hours.

This time, using the ingredients intended for a smaller loaf, I mixed, kneaded, rested, and let it rise part way in the bread machine and let it finish rising in a regulation pan that I then whisked into the oven for a miraculous oven spring!

NOLA Boy report:

He has been having a tough time of it lately.  His blood counts are way down and the anemia is making him very fatigued.  We did take a walk today, like those shown in earlier posts, but it was an effort.

His surgery is on Monday, so we are hoping that after his recovery from that, he will begin to perk up again.  Please think good thoughts for him early Monday morning.

    Sorry to hear about the blood counts. Do they do transfusions for him?
