Scenes from August

What does August look like?
A locally grown tomato sandwich...
On homemade spelt bread, with mayo (cause I could not ever skip the mayo), that one perfect heirloom tomato, homemade basil pesto, and sharp cheddar.
Here it is again, in case you needed a close up of the pesto dribbling everywhere.
Also, today was the last morning of camp, or any kind of childcare, until preschool starts after Labor homemade challah?  Is hard to find time to make.  For the first time, I tried the bread machine.  It is definitely world's funniest looking loaf, even upside down, as in this photo, but it tastes good.  Obviously need to fine tune my recipe for the bread machine, but it's a start...and it all works for French toast, even if it isn't braided!

That looks divine!

I used to have a bread machine, but having done a lot of homemade bread before it I liked a more normal amount of yeast than all the recipes that came with the machine called for. One time I simply put more in, if not quite a normal amount, set the machine, and went to bed, expecting toast in the morning.

Uh, it was definitely toast. The dough rose up over the edges of the pan, dripped onto the burner, caught on fire, and melted the lid onto the sides, asphyxiating the fire before it could burn free. We really really lucked out that night.

Never bought another machine. I do occasionally miss it.
