Once a month (some times twice) Mrs. Stoney has a big baking day. This is torture for me because I work from home and all day long I have to smell that fresh baked bread, but she won’t let me eat any.
Today’s totals included 5 loaves of whole wheat sandwich bread. (click here for the recipe).
A couple of loaves of french bread. These will be made into a delicious pizza sub sandwich.
This is the dough for a whole wheat artisan bread. This dough will stay in the fridge for a week or so before it is baked. This conditions the dough and adds extra flavor as it sits and collects some of the natural yeasts in our environment. This little bucket of dough will make 4 loaves of bread. Each loaf gives us just enough for a meal. They freeze really well so we can save them for later. I’ll try and get a recipe posted soon.
It was also time for some homemade strawberry jam. We always have a container of jam in the freezer. Store bought jam is just terrible so we have made our own jam for all most 20 years now.
New to our bread day were these whole wheat pitas.
We got the recipe from a fellow blogger, Jami over at An Oregon Cottage. (click here to go straight to the recipe). Mrs. Stoney said they were super easy to make and I thought they were really good.
We had them last night stuffed with a little turkey and lettuces with a bit of ranch dressing. Yum! Wow, I love being married to a baker!!
