Some cosmetic changes in preparation for larger site changes in the works.


Well, I think I read the instructions wrong so, let's just say expectations are lowered

"Remove the dough to a slightly floured surface, knead it by hand a few times, place it in an oiled bowl, cover loosely with plastic wrap, and let it rise for 2.5 hours, with quick cycles of folding after 45 minutes and 1 hour and 30 minutes. After the second folding cycle, leave the dough undisturbed for the final 60 minutes of bulk fermentation."

You see...I am math challenged.

I read this as let rise for 45 mins, then fold, then let rise for 1hr 30 mins additional, then fold. Which didn't add up to 2.5, but I ignored that (ha, wrong) and then thought let rise some more for 1 hr.

Now I'm thinking it's let rise for 45mins, fold, and fold again 1:30 -after you started - not 1:30 mins after the first, gah!

Lowered expectations and it's not even in the oven yet!

This is why I'm not allowed outside on my own....[shuffles away muttering to herself]
