Weekly Report for May 19th to 23rd
OK, our big project this week was to make baguettes. We made a whole wheat version with 1 cup whole wheat, 2 cups unbleached and 1 cup cake flour. I love this recipe and we love the bread with it's crackly crust. It is perfect for dipping in oil mixes.
First: We mix the ingredients into a shaggy dough.
Second: Dough that has been kneaded and has risen.
Third: Dough cut into loaves.
Fourth: Finished bread.
We kept things light and simple this week. The next few weeks we will be cleaning up any thing that we didn't finish up in the regular school year. We won't really start our gearing up until July.

It was a week of ups and downs as we got back into the grove after a two-week break. I also started my oldest on a daily check-list to help her do the things that she needs to do each day. Hope everyone else had a great week too.
