A meal has no taste without bread  
Decided to make bread, following Alton Brown's Basic Bread recipe: http://www.foodnetwork.com/recipes/alton-brown/very-basic-bread-recipe/index.html

Watched the Good Eats episode at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NZdgN_7N7wQ and http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OmiY8vbiBo8

I put the yeast+water+flour thingy in the fridge overnight. Mine separated in the fridge into a water layer and a flour layer. I was worried that was bad, so I took it out and mixed it up and left it on the counter while I was getting the flour and stuff together. Everything came out great, despite the separation. Don't have a food scale, so I had to use volume and add extra a little at a time to get to the right place (recipe says "The dough will be sticky, but not so sticky that you can't handle it.").


Hooray for mixers with dough hooks, as while the dough is kneading is a perfect time to clean up everything else that has gotten dirty so far.

Also last night, made the pizza dough that has to sit in the fridge overnight, so that we can have pizza tonight!

And! Annnnnnd! AND! found a recipe for honey ice cream for my honey in an Italian cookbook my brother gave us.... So, as soon as the snow lets up a little, I'll buy some heavy cream and make that!

Om nom nom. Also, FYI, there's a bunch of Alton Brown segments on Hulu.
