No Knead Bread

Today was the first day of my 'new life'. I need to get into a routine otherwise time will slip through my fingers. The mornings will be interesting. I realized last week when G told me how me what he typically did every morning before he goes to work. He doesn't leave for work until after 10am. He has had a routine and now I will interrupt it. It was his time to use the computer. Of course, I want to get on the computer to check out what has happened overnight on Slow Travel. We will work it out.

One goal is to get into an exercise routine. I need to work on my core strength. Long long ago, I did Jazzercise. I love the dance routines and the music. So I looked up the local classes and went to my first session today. It was great but hard. I am so out of shape. This will be good for me. G suggested that I go for a walk/run in the morning. I will do that tomorrow morning. I'm also thinking about doing a swim when it gets warmer.

I also made the No Knead Bread developed by Zoë François from the book “Artisan Bread in Five Minutes a Day”. They had been raving about it on Slow Travel. I thought this would be perfect to do while I had time. It is so easy and so good. I highly recommend viewing this video on making the bread. I only made one loaf so there are at least 3 more to make from the one batch. The crust is amazing. The flavor isn't a good as local artisan breads but it is still good. I'm looking forward to the next loaf. It should be a bit less yeasty which will be good. I hope to have pictures next time.

Sounds like a great "first" day. Hope you and G work out the computer issue. Obviously catching up on the ST site comes first - I'm sure he'll see the light before too long! :)

You can do some greta thing with this bread - i add herbs, cheeses, etc and it really boosts the flavour nicely. My favourite involves toasted walnuts and dried cranberries.

Oh those suggestions sounds great Jerry. I definitely want to add something next time to give it a bit more flavor.

Hey Marta, don't forget about biking as a form of exercise - it's low impact and great for the knees!

Great idea Kim. I have a Canondale bike gathering dust in my garage that I haven't used in ages. I don't think about riding because it is so hilly in my area but I forgot about Burke Gilman Trail which is not far. It is great place to ride. Maybe when the sun returns. :)
