Blogtoberfest Day 1

Today is the first day of Blogtober, a months long blogging festival hosted by Tinniegirl.

I’m not committing to blogging everyday, but I’ll do my best.

This is the most delicious bread I have ever eaten. Mmmmm.


The girl and I were making dough shortly before 7 this morning, after our early morning walk! And what a beautiful 5.30am it was this morning, fresh but not cold, sun rising and sparkling on the calm waters of the bay and a little person to chat with on the way, “where is the moon mummy, what’s that noise mummy, I see the boat mummy, is it moving mummy, it’s moving, it’s moving (no it’s not) where is the moon, there it is (excited voice), moon’s gone (behind a building), what’s that in the sky (hot air balloon), I see a dog…, I like birds, what’s that noise (parrots), I don’t like parrots, where are the parrots, me see, me see, where is the moon, moon is awake, grandma sleeping (I told her when the moon disappears it is at grandma’s house in the UK)” and so on and so forth, we shared a very pleasurable 40 minutes.

Anyway back to the bread, recipe from here, inspiration from here. I understand why people buy bread, although there isn’t much time involved, you really do have to set aside the whole morning to allow for rising and cooking, but having eaten this (I’ve only made Pizza dough and focaccia before) I can also understand why people do make their own bread.
