The Farm Wife

Did you make a commitment to baking bread yet? One of the easiest yeast breads to make is French bread. But around here, I know better than to make just one loaf. Instead, I usually find myself making at least four baguettes.

The first one is all but consumed the moment they come out of the oven. The Country Boy just cannot resist homemade French bread – even if it does burn his fingers when he cuts the first slice!

The second loaf is usually served with meals throughout the week, with any leftovers made into French Toast. The third loaf is divided up. With part of it I make homemade croutons to serve with a salad. The remainder of the loaf is sliced, dried, and turned into bread crumbs.
