winter: indoor activities

Look what I made today—beautiful multigrain crusty, rustic bread—in an electric oven. I didn't use a recipe, but more of a method from an article in last month's Mother Earth News. The article is an excerpt from the book Artisan Bread in Five Minutes a Day. I used a mixture of whole wheat, rye and bread flour for this; there was no kneading involved, and it tastes as good as it looks.

On another front, this is why kittens should be illegal. The sectional beam is not a good place to play, as far as I'm concerned. Cassidy has different ideas.

I got the Mother Earth magazine in my stocking at Christmas and I too made the 5 minute Artisan loaves....wonderfully chewy and crusty. I loved them, I tried the sticky buns too.....yummm.
