Almost a Snow Day
We had all this:
The kids played in the snow for almost two hours last night, and then I let them stay up even longer because I thought *surely the roads will ice up tonight*, but no. Only rain and holding steady at 34F. So close, so close.
More bitter disappointment. I got the latest Cook's Illustrated which has a new version of the recipe in it. Basically you add some vinegar and beer to it and give it a light kneading instead of no kneading. Like a fool, I followed their instructions for cooking times (not remembering that last time I burned it slightly) which was a mistake. Next time, I'll reduce the temp to 450, and only cook it for 25 mins covered, with no uncovered time.
Oh and BTW, last night I had a slice buttered (cutting off the burned bottom crust) and it was delicious, although my undiscerning taste buds couldn't tell much difference from the addition of the beer and vinegar.
