Not sure about the weather where you live but here, in way northeast New York I can see Canada from my house, it has been wet. Lots of rain ... Oh I'm not complaining, just stating a fact.
Sunday, on the spur of the moment, I decided to take a drive to Norwich, Vermont and attend a bread baking course at the King Arthur Flour Baking School. I just love that place .... they have a great store ... I could spend hours perusing .... Oh, and their restaurant has such wonderful bake goods!
Okay ... perhaps I need to back up a bit ....
Woke up early Sunday morning .... checked the courses available at King Arthur Flour Baking School ... saw one that I liked and it wasn't full!!!! That's a sign ... registered .... and took off for a drive!
Of course, it sort of helped that I just bought a new car. What fun it is to take your new wheels out for a long drive in the country ... music blaring .... Heaven!
The class I attened was Beauty and the Baguette. We made two (2) baguettes. What a great class it was! Here are my results!
Frankly, I'm surprised there were any baguette left over for a photo after a 2.5 hour drive back home!!!!! It was extremely difficult to keep myself from reaching into the bag behind my seat and tear a bite!!!!! It was so yummy!
Once I arrived home, I tested a piece, okay a few more pieces, with butter .... heaven! All I needed was a glass of wine .... but by then I was pretty full! lol
If you have a chance, I would highly recommend taking a baking class at the King Arthur Baking School. I learned lots and I am now comfortable working with a wet dough!
Hum .... this morning I noticed there were crumbs on the rear floor of the car .... I wonder how that happened? LOL
So what's up with you this summer?
Thanks for stopping by! Catch you later!
