Christening the bread bowl

I couldn't help myself and was compelled to bake some bread.

So I pulled out my Large Type New York Times Cookbook and found this recipe.

I really like this particular cookbook for easy to make "American Food". 15 minutes later my dough was ready to rise.

After our 2 mile evening walk with the lovable furball I shaped it into a loaf and tossed it into the oven for the required 40 minutes with a pan of water (not sure what this does but the recipe called for it.

With this rather ugly but I'm sure tasty loaf being the result at midnight. One of the reasons I prefer round loaves or braided loaves is that they just tend to look nicer when they are done.

I love my new bread bowl and I bet Flopper will love the bread.
