perfect for dough, too hot for bread
Here it is, the height of summer. The outdoors is warm, humid, and alive with sunshine. I love watching my garden get lush and green, and my tomato crop is filling out. My squash plants are blooming and spreading (and spreading and spreading!) But, I miss baking. It is far too hot to turn the oven on, so I rely on the microwave, or eat things that don't need any cooking. Still...it is the best time of the year to rise bread dough, and the worst to bake it. It's funny how many things are just like that!
