|My cheer squad!|
|Any race that starts at a bar has got to be a good time.|
|This would be my pace- what up, slow folks? The 10 minute pace group was HUGE and likely full of a more than a few liars. 10 minute miles are no joke.|
I finished in 36:27 which would be a 11:44 minute mile- booyeah!
And then I came home and made bread. I know, I know- not the best way to cool down, but so, so worth it. Plus, since I didn’t buy bread this week, Nick’s sandwiches would have been very sad without it.
I followed this recipe from TheKitchn to the letter and it was wonderful! The tutorials were also super helpful.
Sometimes I like to pretend that I’m one of those fancy bloggers who gets everything all set up and pretty and uses a light box to get the perfect shot….then I stop being polite and start getting real. Please note the giant stuffed carrot in the background.
Does anyone else think that sea monkeys and yeast are the same thing? Alive, yet not alive…and 100% weird.
|Kneading is seriously so much fun.|
My first rise was in the oven with just the light on. This provides just enough warmth to get the dough puffing.
|Check out that crumb!!!|
If only I had a video of the bread happy dance I did after this came out of the oven…I probably wouldn’t post it, but I would watch it on bad days and remember how completely awesome I am.
Finally, a PSA for you, good readers- don’t start making bread at 6:45 PM. You will be up LATE.
