i bake a LOT of bread.
that's no joke.
and i like bread.
and i break bread.
and i share bread.
and i believe, for real,
that honest-to-goodness carefully crafted bread
is what the whole world needs a whole lot more of.
good bread makes better people,
and i've been on the path to self-improvement through natural fermentation
for a while now.
what have i been baking?
i'll show you:
there's no such thing as too much bread.
in fact, sharing the stuff builds better relationships.
making it is meditative, contemplative, and good-fortune-generating.
that's a thing.
the air, and the water, and the wheat all work together to make a living thing,
and that self-replicating organism is determined to make something special
out of just the simplest stuff.
and i'm so psyched about it.
now look again, because there's plenty MORE:
i'm not saying that i know all there is to know about bread.
far from it.
but, i will say that i enjoy making it, because i think i genuinely learn something more
each and every time i bake.
...that's pretty awesome, since i bake bread a few times a week.
and when it's time to feed the starter, i give it a little pep talk.
and when it's time to measure stuff, i give it a little off-the-cuff add-on or mix-in.
i only very roughly measure.
and it seems to be working, so i 'spose i won't stop until i start making sucky bread.
seems like a good plan to me.
now look at more bread:
is that not enough yet?
you want more?
i guess i like carbohydrates, huh?
let me just say, i believe in what i tell you.
too much is the right amount.
here are the last of the current roster of loaves:
THAT'S SOOOO MUCH BREAD!!
and i document every loaf.
the best way to progress is to keep records of all you do.
there are comparisons that need making,
and milemarkers that need measuring.
it's all really happening, in my oven, and on my countertops, and in my mouth.
homemade tastes better, looks better, and makes you better.
get involved in your daily bread, bro.
you'll be glad you did;
never quiet, never soft.....
