Yesterday was break-making day. I decided to do the Hodgson Mills white bread. I always use unbleached while flour, King Arthur preferred brand. This bread calls for three rises and I normally do them. This time it took a lot longer that the hour rise of each. I didn't set the timer and got involved (with the computer). The dough had risen over the sides of the bowl and was hanging down almost to the counter! It had a bit of a yeasty, sour-dough smell but I made up the three loaves, baked and it was great. I could still detect a bit of sour-dough flavor but we enjoyed our sample piece and it toasted beautifully this morning.
Wish I had taken a picture of it hanging over the bowl....but panicked and didn't.
The new chickens are still laying nicely for us. I now have 2 dozen colorful ones in the fridge.
