Have I posted a picture of my square bread yet?
I feel like I’ve told this story but don’t see it in any past posts.
Colleague was asking me about a Pullman bread pan and describing what it was. I rolled my eyes. Who needs a bread pan like that? Then I researched it for myself and somehow decided that I had to have one.
This was my first loaf made using a Cook’s Illustrated easy sandwich bread recipe.
I also made a loaf using a whole wheat bread and the pan was overfull and not a true disaster but not pretty. More loaves to come.
This is from Christmas Day — we opened our Christmas fruit spread. It was both super delicious and also not quite like any flavor found in nature. The label on the jar says 50% fruit which is a pretty ominous percentage. It tasted like apples, strawberries, cinnamon, and a little bit of Christmas.
Best wishes for the new year.
