remembering the disremembered

I have been negligent. At least when it comes to the following three dishes.

But data is data, after all — and data is recorded.

I don’t have much for stories. This sourdough rye bread was baked last August, the day before I left for New England. Is that an excuse for neglecting to include it in my journal? The dough wouldn’t raise. I remember that. But it was awesome — as most homemade breads are awesome.

This represents my 29th completed bread from Reinhart’s The Bread Baker’s Apprentice (percentage complete: 52.73%).

This drink is my 55th completed recipe from Krieger’s book. Percentage complete: 26.32%

I now have completed 34 recipes from this book. Percentage complete: 12.69%
