My cooking tragedies
Years ago, we lived in Houston. I was making whole wheat bread (six loaves at a time)and I had set the large bowel of dough in a warm spot to rise.The family had just started watching a long movie and I joined them - totally forgetting about the rising dough. Well - several hours later - my husband found the living, breathing dough on the counters, floor and wall.It looked like the saturday horror movie "The Blob" We all had a good laugh.
