Nothing special this morning, except that it is still raining after almost three days non stop, but luckily no flooding. Needless to say I have not been anywhere or done anything special although, yes, I was baking bread again. It is now almost becoming a daily task, but an easy task with my machines and bread baking forms.
This was my first dough of a half white bread. 500 grammes flour, 3 deci water mixed with 20 grammes yeast and one a half spoonful of salt all mixed together (in my machine, takes a couple of minutes). Then I leave it for a couple of hours to raise in a warm place (until I have finished my afternoon sleep after lunch). Afterwards knead it a bit and put it in the baking form in a warm place again to raise for half an hour. Then in the oven at 240° C for half an hour with a lid on the form. After half an hour I remove the lid and leave it further to bake for 15 minutes and then it is finished.
If everything goes well it should look like this. Today no bread baking as my cleaning lady is here and I got a delivery from my online store, so there is no time. In the meanwhile I have been vacuuming meat and placing it in my freezer.
There was not so much bird life yesterday, but I think the rain tends to deter them on their feeding excursions.
My buddleiea is now looking quite neglected. I cut it down this week and I hope it is now gathering strength for the warmer seasons to grow and again produce flowers.
And now to complete the morning chores by finishing my cooking of the dinner. Have a good day everyone, take care. See you around later.
