Not so lucky last night. The bread turned out great if you could ignore the fact that it didn’t rise quite as much as it should have. It basically turned out like bread I would make. It tasted great though. I just have to get it to rise. So… tonight I am heading to the store to buy myself a thermometer so I can accurately measure that water temperature. That is the only thing that wasn’t according to the recipe. The yeast was brand new and at room temperature.
We also received our cutlery. The cutlery is quite nice and was a real bargain because it was open box. Despite the fact that the description said no damage one of the forks had some long scratches the length of the entire fork. But… for that price (~1/4 of the original)… I guess one damaged piece is a small price to pay.
