Bored and Baking

Lockdown provided much time for ruminative chewing and for trying out new recipes. Breadmaking is a time-heavy pursuit, but the aromas wafting through the house, more than make up for the hours spent kneading and proving. There is also a primeval satisfaction derived from feeling that after the brave delivery people have delivered your sack of flour and powder keg of yeast, you are self-sufficient, ready to feed your brood without venturing out into the cold and deserted streets.
