Today was the official baking day for the friendship bread that I started 10 days ago (the starter miscalculation that left me with 10 starters to give away!). All in all, I think the journey from Oklahoma to Danville, VA was successful:
We baked 2 starter's worth and saved 2 more to freeze/give away. I'm fairly sure the reason you can make 2 loaves from one starter is because it is ABSOLUTELY NECESSARY to eat nearly an entire loaf the second it comes out of the oven.
It's fun baking in my mother-in-law's kitchen at Thanksgiving because we always blast the Christmas tunes. It's NEVER to early for Christmas tunes, I think (much to the annoyance of my poor college roommates). This year I danced around with Joe to "Rockin' Around the Christmas Tree" while we waited for the bread to cool off.
I don't know which was better; the bread or the dancing. I think he liked it too.
I hope everyone else's bread turned out well! Please let me know if you were baking today! (Link for recipe is here, in case you need it.)
