    Dinner 2020

    Beef Dip sandwich on homemade baguette with double fried fries.
  2. @Franci, I love your cute little mini burger buns. I need to make some. Thanks for the idea. Found a way to bake baguettes where the timing really works well for me. Since I'm an early riser, usually awake by 3:00, I can bake in the morning. Works especially well, like today when I'm going into work. I fed my starter yesterday and then threw the discard into 220g of flour and 220g of water for a biga. After 6 hours, I tossed it into 1000g of flour, 800g of water with just the addition of 1gr of yeast and 30g of salt for a slow overnight fermentation on the counter. I d

    The real reason I bake bread. Toast. Moe's breakfast. Still a few weeks away from having home grown tomatoes.

    Dinner 2020

    Canada Day Pizza. Matt wanted a plain cheese and Moe and I shared an Italian Sausage and Mushroom. Hadn't fed my starter in about three weeks so fed it last night and used 70g of discard in a biga. Added it to a 1000g of flour this morning along with 1 gram of yeast. Hydration was 80%. I wanted a slow all day rise while I was at work. Baked two large pizzas and four baguettes.
  8. @weinoo, thanks to you I have a new bread book. This was not one I was familiar with. After I read your May post, I found one on line and ordered it from Powell Books. Moe found it in the mail box today. Took a while to arrive, but it is brand new, (1993 edition) never been cracked open and I paid $5.50 plus $7.00 shipping (US). Was less than $18.00 CAD.
  9. I tend to make smaller baguettes. Usually between 6 and 8 from a 1000g batch. A baguette this size gets eaten in one day and I freeze the others wrapped in paper towels and in zip lock freezer bags. I don't preslice before freezing.

    Thanks @Kim Shook. That dessert is probably one of the easiest and quickest I make. You should give it a try. Lobster Aglio e Olio for dinner tonight.

    Dinner 2020

    Had to go into Victoria and Sidney yesterday so we had lunch out. Stopped on the way home and picked up local strawberries and fresh eggs from the same farm stall and made a Strawberry Meringue Roulade for dinner.

    Another one of Moe's breakfasts.
  14. @weinoo, remember I'm baking these baguettes in the CS0, so they are smaller. between 12" and 13" long. Most of the baguettes are eaten as toast. Or split for sandwiches. Perfect size for two people.
  15. @weinoo, No one ever turns down a fresh baked baguette. So some are given away and one or two gets kept out to be eaten within a day or two and the rest are frozen. Bread freezes well. I wrap the loaves in paper towels and freeze in ziplock freezer bags. Have been doing this for years. Warmed up in the CSO they are almost as good as fresh baked.

    Moe's breakfast from yesterday.
  20. @curls, that boule is a real beauty. Love that golden rich colour of the crust. Started two batches of dough Monday morning. One was a 600g at 80% destined for pizza Monday night and the other a 1000g flour batch at 72%. Both were made just from discard. The pizza batch had the discard from the white starter with 2g of yeast and the 1000g batch had the discard from the rye starter discard, along with 2g of yeast. Made three pizzas on Monday night, plus one small baguette, and left the other batch out of the counter for 17 hours and baked yesterday morn

    Dinner 2020

    Fed my starters this morning and made a dough for pizza (600g flour) with the discard from the white starter, plus 2 g of yeast. I had Italian Sausage and Mushroom and I made Moe a Prosciutto and Pineapple pizza. I call this an act of love because just the thought of pineapple on a pizza makes me cringe.

    Dinner 2020

    I cheated last night. Stopped on the way home from work and picked up a rotisserie chicken. Made sure I picked one with lots of drippings in the bottom of the container. To make the gravy I poured the drippings into a shallow pan, along with a little butter and let the drippings cook down and brown in the butter. Added flour to make a roux, cooked for a few minutes and then added chicken broth and seasoned with sage, salt and pepper. Covered and let it simmer on very low heat for the flavours to meld while I double fried the french fries. Quick and easy
