Look, look! It’s March! Finally.
Also, I got a little macro lens for my phone! And now I can take pictures like this:

I feel like making your own bread is one of those things that is so rewarding. People are so impressed when you are like, “Yeah, I made this bread.” Plus it’s also very rewarding to squish the dough between your fingers. This bread recipe is pretty easy and it actually doesn’t take very long to put together, which is 90% of it’s appeal to me. So don’t be too impressed.
I got the recipe for this bread from this book, and I am pretty sure bad things can happen to me if I re-print without permission. If you are at all interested, the book, Artisan Bread in Five Minutes a Day, is awesome. I wish I could tell you that I make my own bread all the time. But I am, in fact, too lazy for even five-minute-a-day bread. Even if it is artisan. So you can go ahead and be even less impressed.
Oh wait. I just found the recipe online. Ta da! I followed this and just added about three tablespoons of fresh rosemary. Which, of course, came from my CSA.
