How to make bread for masses. And enough to last the family a week. (and hopefully, more) :
1. Put on your apron. It'll help get you in working mode and you know that you'll get covered with flour if you don't. Be sure to put on comfortable shoes. You'll be on your feet all day.
2. Turn on some Bach harpsichord music for some get-up-and-go.
4. Pull out your Healthy Bread in Five Minutes a Day cookbook. Mix up the 100% Whole Wheat Bread, Plain and Simple recipe that you'll use for the Naan flatbread and the pita. Then, the 100% Whole Grain Maple Oatmeal Bread dough that you'll use for the sandwich loaves and the cinnamon raisin bagels. Let them both rise for a couple of hours. Easy enough.
6. Heck, they're good enough to eat, so why not? Pull out some hummus (that you made yesterday) from the fridge, schmear some on one that's still warm, and enjoy for your lunch.
7. Talk to Jane on the phone.
9. Fry up the Naan bread for tonight's dinner. This will be so good with the Portuguese soup that's planned.
10. Read Gary's email. Respond and snicker at your own wittiness.
13. Form your bagels. Let them rise a bit and give them a bath in boiling water. Bake them longer than the recipe says. (They'll be pretty soggy.) Try not to not let it bother you that they come out a little flat looking. Isaac will still be happy you made them.
15. Attack most of the kitchen mess before you have to head out the door for carpool. You'll thank yourself when dinner time rolls around. Like in a couple of hours, don't you know.
