    I seem to have no facility for that. I get pretty good bread from my bread machine, but whenever I try it by hand, I get an organic doorstop.

    I too am doomed when it comes to making anything that requires working with yeast. My last batch of poffertjes were like golf balls. :angry017:

    I much prefer to stick with simple acid-base reactions for levening.

    That's too bad, but you have to stick with what works for you.

    Here are a couple loaves of olive bread I made recently.

    Forgot that I have an ancient loaf of Schar GF bread in the back of the fridge. I think it's rice-based. It's okay but just so unsatisfying as bread that I'd stopped eating it. Maybe I should use it for french toast.

    My wife lets me buy expensive razors a couple times a year. She's a keeper. She also makes pretty good bread, so there's that too.

    ...But, having lived 37 relatively peaceful unmarried years before I met her, I make pretty good bread too. Never saw the point in having a bread machine. A cooking machine that can only make one thing and takes up a lot of space? Oh, yes, please!

    Yeah, right.

    Put it in the blender with a stick of butter and push the liquify button.

    When our oldest was a toddler (28 or so years ago), we were in a restaurant having breakfast. The toddler was in the high chair and being a normal, rowdy, talkative, squirrelly little kid. My wife was trying to get him to quiet down and was talking to him in that mom voice. He promptly took a couple of bites from his toast until it was shaped sort of like a gun and pointed it at his mom and pikowed her. She glared at me like it was my fault as I burst into laughter. She stood up and said, "You deal with YOUR son! I'm going to the car!"

    So apparently, you can't cut your toast in the shape of a gun and pkow your mom at my house.

    That makes toast paste, known in Arkansas as poast.

    We go from bellies dragging on the floor to nice watches. Charlie, I think I'm going to order a Quartz from a company in Oshkosh, WI named Dream Products. The numerals are large and it glows in the dark--in addition ...it has a "self-fastening closure"(I suppose like belts for pants).

  20. I'd go for letter "D". You get more toast that way......
