As I mentioned last night, we’re planning to have dinner out and about tonight, so today wasn’t looking good to be a “recipe” day. However, when I realized Bill forgot his sandwich stuff today, I realized today would be a good day to make sandwich bread.

Normally, I make “this”:http://allrecipes.com/Recipe/Amish-White-Bread/Detail.aspx bread when I want to make bread, especially for sandwiches. It’s a touch on the sweet side, but basically works. I’d imagine you could drop the sugar quite a bit and still get great bread.

So, I started contemplating bread when I realized that one of my cookbooks HAS to have a good sandwich bread recipe, right?

Well, maybe. But after asking on Twitter, I got one vote for “nothing good in Joy of Cooking” and one vote for “Make my mother’s bread recipe” (which I didn’t have). So I tried the “Sandwich Bread, Five Ways” recipe in “How to Cook Everything.”:http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/0764578650?ie=UTF8&tag=metaco-20&linkCode=as2&camp=1789&creative=390957&creativeASIN=0764578650

Unfortunately for me (and for the content of this blog), the dough has decided that “rising” isn’t really in it’s job description. We could blame the little yeasties, but I’ve made yeast bread recently enough that I’m pretty sure it’s not them.

So, first real recipe fail. I guess that’s ALSO a milestone.
