BBA Rewind - Artos; and Guess Where We're Going on Our Vacation




I never finish anything. Not cleaning the house. Washing the dishes. The laundry. The filing. Cleaning out my closet. The only reason I get through our audit at work is the paralyzing fear of failure.

So it is indeed peculiar that I am determined to bake all of the breads in The Bread Baker's Apprentice: Mastering the Art of Extraordinary Bread. But it was no surprise that, with so many other deadlines looming before our vacation, that I decided to "make up" Artos bread. The group baked this bread before I joined, and I've been meaning to give it a try. With its heavy dose of aromatic spices, it made the house smell amazing. Nancy tweeted that it was great with the optional glaze so I made it with it and the sesame seeds. This bread was so fantastic that, with the deadline of catching a flight (with intermediate stops at the post office, vet, and--don't ask-- the Apple store) hanging over me and not the first item of clothing in my suitcase, I felt compelled to complete this post. So it's a short one with one takeaway...

AMAZING BREAD

Lethally Delicious is on vacation! I will have limited access to the Internet so may not be able to respond to comments for a while. We may go here...

As well as a large city nearby. And we may go here, too:

Any idea where we're going?

My guess is France. Have a great trip. I really enjoyed Versailles (if I'm correct about that picture) and Paris. I'm jealous.
