First off, so sorry for the yellow photo. The lighting in my kitchen stinks in the evening. Maybe I should take my photos earlier in the day when the light is better. But, whatever the case, I've got some feedback on the bread dough.
I loved it! How cool to be able to grab bread dough as you need it straight from the fridge. I loved that the dough mixes together so quickly, without any kneading involved. I decided to follow the recipe to a tee, so that I could get a good feel for the dough as the authors intended. The tinkering will have to wait for subsequent batches.
It was crazy busy last week, so I didn't get a chance to use the dough until Saturday. From what I read in the book, the extra time in the fridge would only add more flavor to the dough. It was nice to be able to bake off a loaf of bread while throwing our dinner on the grill. We had an awesome feast with very little effort, and the bread had a fantastic crunchy crust.
I had planned to bake another loaf on Sunday, but my kids wanted Pizza for dinner. Guess what we made pizza with? That's right, the nice, flavorful bread dough sitting in my fridge. I tried to take pics, but the lighting was terrible. So trust me when I tell you that it worked well and the kids gobbled up the entire pizza.
I'm sold on making bread this way and will stir up another batch tonight. This doesn't mean that I'll never make other bread recipes, but it does mean that I will thoroughly enjoy knowing that I always have a regular stash of dough in my fridge, ready to bake at a moments notice. I can't wait to try some of the other bread recipes in the book too.
