8-10-12, Day 53 – Internship

AUGUST 10, 11, 12, 13, 14, 15, 16, 17, 18, 19, 20, 21!

Another day down – yeah!  Only 7 more days now until Dale arrives.  Everyone will probably get tired of me for the next 7 days mentioning how many days are left, but I’m pretty excited!

Besides all our usual pre-shaping and shaping, I mixed up soakers and pre-ferments, then it was onto cutting mushrooms and shredding cheese for pizzas.

For some reason, today feels like Saturday.  It’s just starting to rain here and we had a lot of lightning last night.  Hoping that we continue to get more rain back home:)

Remember Brother Juniper’s Bread Book by Peter Reinhart that I purchased the other day – it’s an AWESOME read.  I’m almost halfway through the book, and it has some pretty nice recipes in it too for breads, muffins, scones and pizza.  If you’re into baking, I would highly recommend purchasing it.  Brand new, it’s $17, but I purchased it second-hand for $4.99!

That’s it for today . . . I’ll check back in tomorrow and see if I can get some pics after I’m done with work.  We have a brand new bread display behind the bakery/cafe, which is pretty neat.
