Each and every year during the week between Christmas and New Years, I try to re-evaluate my life. I try to decide how to maintain the things I liked and eliminate the things I didn't like. I've never given this time a name, but as every program on every TV channel is doing their own version of "2010 in Review", I've decided to do my version of "The Year in Review". Every year, I make my New Year's Resolutions, and every year by the end of the first week in January, they have fallen by the wayside into prickles and thorns. So this year, I have decided to make resolutions that might actually be achievable.
But the book I'm most excited about is this one. It's a book on healthy bread. As a diabetic, I'm encouraged to eat breads made with whole grains. So I'm hoping that the breads in the book will satisfy my crusty bread lust, and fulfill my diabetic whole grain bread need. I got a panini grill/griddle for Christmas, and just thinking about panini sandwiches on these breads is making my mouth water. Before Christmas, I ordered some specialty flours from the King Arthur flour website, and am hoping to put them to good use with these books. Doesn't this loaf on the cover look yummy??
So, with this purchase, I am on my way to realizing my first resolution -- baking healthy, homemade bread. And now onto the next one -- tomorrow.
