The Bread Habit

IMG_0856Thinking about habitual behavior. Funny how one can slide in and out of activities. For months, I was into the No-Knead method of baking bread. And then, for whatever reason, I slid back into my old method of kneading. I reverted back into my old habits and recipes.

I read an article that promoted the idea that it really takes much longer than the accepted twenty-one days to firmly entrench a habit into our daily lives. I’d really like to get the treadmill habit fixed into my routine, but there’s always a reason to let it slide.

Anyway, back to bread. I bake 90% of our bread and have for as long as I can remember. Maybe that’s a good habit that I can truly claim. The No-Knead method, while not being the only approach, is not just a fad that I should let slip through my fingers. It makes really good bread with a chewy crust. And it’s super easy and eliminates a lot of the mess associated with bread baking. It’s also pretty much foolproof.

I’m going to repost my recipe for No-Knead bread. I say mine because it’s a combination of methods.

Off to make bread!
