Bread Baker’s Apprentice: CHALLENGE #21 Pain a l’Ancienne

I baked the Bread Baker’s Apprentice CHALLENGE
#21 Pain a l’Ancienne into a PIZZA as suggested. It was awesome.
I reduced the recipe down to make just the one thin pizza. I used alfredo sauce, pineapple, ham, and shredded taco cheese. Yes, taco cheese.
Albert and I both loved it. I will be making this again.
There is only two pieces left which is just enough for my lunch tomorrow.

Bread Baker’s Apprentice: CHALLENGE #20 Multigrain Bread Extraordinaire

This recipe is AWESOME even though I ended up with an 'air hump'! LOL!
The only changes I made was 'instead' of the 3 tablespoons of brown rice I used the same amount of ground flax seed and when I did the soaker I added over twice the water and just didn't add it in later on. Oh and I did not use Polenta. I hate that stuff. It is too harsh and crunchy. I used cornmeal. :)
I have to say that Albert and I really enjoyed it. You can tell because over half of it was gone at lunchtime. :)
It does make the very best toast ever and I mean ever.
YUM. This will be one I will be sure to make again.

Bread Baker’s Apprentice: CHALLENGE #19 Marbled Rye Bread

This is my try with the BBA Challenge recipe #19 Marbled Rye Bread.
I cut the recipe in half as I only wanted one loaf. The loaf was huge
but very tasty. :)
I guess I didn't understand how to roll the two doughs together to get a nice pattern. LOL.

I baked the BBA challenge recipe # 18 today which is Light Wheat.
I made rolls because I like rolls better. :o) They turned out great. Very yummy.
Being able to bake more is one good thing about the cooler weather!

Today a busy one:

Today was a busy one: laundry, sweep, vacuum through, clean tub (try to) LOL, reconcile accounts, run and clean out dishwasher, clean porch, get cold meat and cheese downtown, clean cupboards under sinks and various other little thingies.


I also baked my own birthday cake and decorated it. :) NOPE it isn't my birthday today but it will be on the 19th.To celebrate we are taking Ron, Erica, Andy, Melissa, Drew and Mason to Lake Placid tomorrow. We rented a big van thingy to haul us all. We plan to leaf peep, eat out at Charlie's, walk the shops, and go up White Face Mountain if it isn't too cloudy.I'll be 54 and I can bake and decorate my own cake if I want. LOL!
