Baking day

Thursdays are my baking day. I’m down one child and we have a more relaxed day, generally. Today I made 5 loaves of bread, 3 sourdough and 2 yeasted. All but one will go into the freezer to be eaten over the next 1-2 weeks.

This is no-knead sourdough that I started last night. I bake it in a ducth oven.

Mixing up the dough for today’s baking. The bowl on the left become two sandwich loaves and the other smaller bowl, a sourdough boule each.

The loaf on the left has already been tucked into. And my sandwich loaves are a tad brown as my new oven runs hotter than I am used to.

I love the magic of sourdough. My sourdough is around 3 years old now. I started it myself and it took about a month to really start rising the bread. But my family prefers yeasted sandwich bread so I still bake some of that, as well.
