I love Sunday and I love to spend my Sundays knitting and cooking while Dido works on the computer or reads a book or helps me cooking.

Yesterday when I came home after the workshop I discovered that he had already made all the cleanings and that I was free to do nothing! Could I possibly ask more?

So I spent this day knitting and cooking. I baked a loaf of Kamut bread, the same recipe I did last week. We like it and we don’t want to change at the moment. I’m running out of kamut flour though, which means that next loaf will have to be a different one. We’ll see. And then I baked some brioche bread. I tried the recipe I founded on Cathy Ytak’s book. Actualy I finished mixing 2 different recipes and it turned out pretty good. Well, we still have to taste it, but it looks good!

Ta da!

Here are some pictures of what I have been cooking today. I’m sooo satisfied! ^_^

First I baked a kamut bread. As I told before I took the recipe from “Fare il pane con la macchina del pane” of Cathy Ytak. For a 750 g loaf you will need:

270 ml of water

350 g of 00 flour

100 g of kamut flour

2.5 teaspoons of powder yeast (I used 25 g of beer yeast but I’m not sure if it is called this way in english… ^_^’)

1.5 teaspoon of salt

1 teaspoon of sugar

1 spoon of extravirgin olive oil

1 teaspoon of lemon juice (I didn’t add it)
