BakingThis is a photo heavy post – pardon the deluge.
Perhaps one of the reasons we go through so much propane (and why I am guessing our usage has only increased) is that we love to cook including a fair amount of baking. I grew up watching my Mom make bread and cinnamon rolls and Carol grew up watching his Mom make bread and meat pies of various kinds. Our recipe book:
Carol recently made a gorgeous salmon pie (salmon, potatoes, carrots inside a pie crust).
I’m not a big catsup fan but for some reason salmon pie requires it – shown here with the last episode of “Band of Brothers” (THANK YOU Dave & Allison!!)
I had a big baking day when I used Marcelle's (Carol’s mother) recipe for bread to make an assortment of doughy delights. Dough pre and post-rising:
I took that huge amount of dough and made 2 small loaves of bread, 2 bread boules, a set of 8 salami-pesto rolls and a pizza. Pre-rise photo includes the pizza dough in a ziploc bag which can be kept in the fridge for a few days before using:
The salami-pesto rolls prior to slicing:
The finished products including the not-yet-baked pizza which never made it into the fridge:
