November 1, brings us again to
Suzan's brilliant Project Genesis.
I, lovingly call it Project Genius...because it is!
I've been baking my own bread lately, because a Mary, a brilliant friend of mine, steered me to Jim Lahey's recipe for No Knead Bread
I've been churning out loaf after loaf and it's delicious, but I don't know how to make a smaller one, and it's proving a lot of bread for two people to consume before it goes stale.
I don't like to use plastic wrap, partly because it's wasteful and non-eco-friendly, but truthfully, mostly because the darn stuff makes me crazy sticking to itself!
My eldest daughter just took a trip to England and France (stay with me, there is a point to all of this) and while there bought me a linen bread bag.
It's brilliant, and beautiful and keeps the crust, well...crusty!
I can't show you a picture of mine because I forgot it at Lindsay's home on Saturday,
but it looks similar to this one.
Mine is two shades of grey and has "Pain" embroidered on it. It's large enough to hold two baguettes or two boules.
I love it!
For those of you clever enough to wield a needle,
here is a pattern to make your own from ECAB
Thanks Old Grey Mare, this is just a small thing...but every little bit helps!
