Things That Can Be Carried On A Bike (#205 & #206) with a few comments.

#205: Five pounds of rising bread dough in a plastic bucket; a canvas bag containing books, pencils, reading glasses, and (oddly) a retractable measuring tape.

#206: an empty plastic bucket; a paper bag with a sweaty shirt and 3 pairs of socks; a canvas bag; a cardboard box containing a partial bottle of red wine, 2 1/2 loaves of freshly baked 100% whole wheat bread, and two pints of homemade dog food (beef and rice).

I find it interesting--and am truly thankful--that I am in the rare position to make bread dough at home and carry it to work on a bike where I bake it. This morning I realized that I was low on bread at home (I eat a lot of bread--I am the antithesis of the low carb diet--and make most of my own). I didn't have enough time to make the bread in it's entirety, but did have an hour or so to make the preferment and the dough. I've done this a few times this summer...the ovens at work are always on; why heat up my home kitchen.

Anyhow, if you'd like additional info and a recipe for bread made with 100% whole wheat flour, including picture, click here. Here's a few photos of today's bread making.


Mmm those are looking good!
