`📅 Thought for today:

‘Baking is about multi-tasking. If you are organized and prepared, that’s half the battle.’

— Johnny Iuzzini

Yesterday was a baking and cooking day.

When I draw up my lists of nourishing and depleting activities (wiu=th a side order of mastery), baking will be at the top.

Nourishment for the body, the mind and the soul.

I immerse myself in baking and love the challenge of baking something. It doesn’t have to be technically complex.

I love learning new techniques.

Baking bread is mostly the same set of ingredients – flour, water, salt and yeast.

You might add to that to change the nature of the bread – enrich it with milk, eggs, sugar for instance. Or flavour it, change the texture, or incorporate other things such as seeds and nuts.

For me baking is a mindful activity – I am immersed to the point of ignoring distractions.

Yesterday I made Japanese Milk Bread and made roasted vegetable soup to use up the last remains of a super-seedy wholewheat sourdough.

It was a wonderful day.
