I've slipped back into bread making very easily.
Although there is still part of a sliced loaf in the freezer along with lots of the bargain yellow stickered buns and French sticks, I decided to get my hand in again with the homemade bread. After all nothing beats a nice thick slice of buttered toast with a bowl of homemade soup for lunch.
Last week I mastered getting my buns to stay a little bit soft on top. I simply draped a tea-towel over the buns as they cooled down on the wire rack and it worked a treat.
This was last weeks loaf and the two smaller loaves on the first photo are the ones I made the other day. Now only a couple of slices of one of the loaves is left in the bread bin ... I never even got to photograph the two buns that I also made along with them, we ate them warm from the oven with our soup.
And the 'freebies and the chance' of the title ... well in the free |Tesco magazine I picked up the other day were these coupons (along with lots of others for things I have no use for). The freebie is a cup of coffee from the Tesco café, I'll rarely say no to free coffee, and the chance is to win £100 in Tesco vouchers .... well someone has to win, I might as well offer my coupon up for scanning when I'm buying this weeks bottle of milk tomorrow!!
