Well, it's taken me five-months do this this. I finally made a decent bread. This was a project. No harder task on the planet (for me), as far as I'm concerned. Oh my goodness, my house smelled great, my tummy was happy, my child was happy, my brain exploding. But five months of failing paid off just to make a simple bread. My hats off to bakers. I could not do this for a living. You are special.
Here's a picture of my bread. I'm not sure about anyone else, but the first loaf is a proud moment. Especially struggling (and almost giving up) like I did. I have to show it. Plus, it was good!
Yeah, it was only white, but all the books said do the basics first. Ok. It took me five months for the basics!
Cheers. Let's raise a glass to hard work.
