Giant Robot – I Am Not Human:
And I have potato salad made last night with flavors nice and melded in the fridge, fried chicken cooling on a rack, fresh bread on the cutting board, and the smells have me ready to dig in right now…
…No…Must. Resist. Clean up the stove a bit to keep…busy.
The loaf from the dutch oven was crackling crisp.
Until it cooled on a rack and now the crust is supple. Oh well, if it tastes half as good as the loaf from the sheet pan, it will be great.
I just made a mutt of a bread dough from a King Arthur recipe and my own fiddling with ingredients to include fresh buttermilk from my last batch of home-made butter and honey. One loaf is free-form on a sheet and the other is in my dutch oven.
What could possibly go wrong?
Sirloin tips? Check
Grinder ready to go? Check
Fresh mayo? Juuuuust made it, check!
Lettuce, tomato, pickles, cheddar cheese? Check.
Weber clean and ready to fire up? Check
Parents invited? Check.
More beer? Check!
Lightning in a black as Hades storm rolling in when the nice weatherman promised partly cloudy? CHECK!
I guess we will have to re-schedule the cookout.
