The other...complete failure to rise. I tried to proof the yeast according to the directions on the recipe, but it didn't really seem to be doing anything. But it is the rapid rise and the yeast pouch says nothing of proofing it so I assumed that to be the problem, after all the first recipe I made did rise more than these.
So I'll be back with more bread talk once I get that new yeast my wife is talking about.
What I will tell you is this, even though my bread was pretty much a failure as bread goes, it was a huge success in spending time with my 18-mos old daughter...Isn't she just adorable? She loves to help daddy cook!
She had lots of fun throwing the soupy dough all over the counter while stirring but she really loved helping knead the dough. Little does she know that her entire world is about to be turned upside down...hopefully today. My wife is about eleven months pregnant right now. We are expecting our second little girl on Tuesday so Kenzie is in for a big shock I think...we all are actually! I at least know there's going to be a new permanent guest in our house for the next 18 years, but poor little Kenzie has no idea what's coming. And I admit I have no idea of what to expect either though. We have two female dogs, now two daughters a wife and a Me.....help!
