That soup sounds nice, Marina. I am having cream of mixed veggie soup for dinner.
Felt like a snack.  Mixed smoked trout with philly cheese, onion tops, parsley and a good squeeze of lemon juice. Made a nice dip.

It's such a cold, wet, windy, depressing day here I made my first pot of soup for the year - pumpkin with lentils and cashews.
We had the opposite weather to you today Marina. A warm sunny day, well warm by UK standards ;D

K Atie sounds nice.
Going to make the Spelt and potato rolls again today, before I post recipe.
Also going to try a new bread recipe called No - time bread. The proofing is done in the microwave. Baked in a pre heated cast iron pot.
Good soup weather.  Pumpkin or Cauli or Won Ton?

Yesterday was Vegetable soup and another loaf of wholemeal bread.  Not sure what I will do today.
The  man who said it can't be done should not interupt the woman doing it.

I havenít cooked a white loaf for some time.   This is the No - time bread.   All up 1 hour and 10 minutes.   About the same time as bread into cold oven.

Your friend will appreciate the soft food Chookie.
Nice baking cookie and what great slashes you make.

Judy, Iím just learning to do the slashes. Iíve been using all sorts of things and they havenít been the best. I now use a razor blade (they arenít cheap anymore!) and try and be bold. I have to learn to make them more symmetrical.

Judy, I’m just learning to do the slashes. I’ve been using all sorts of things and they haven’t been the best. I now use a razor blade (they aren’t cheap anymore!) and try and be bold. I have to learn to make them more symmetrical.

That bread looks good, Chookie.  Is the recipe on here anywhere?

Cookie, have you tried getting hold of a scalpel  It might be less dangerous and there are quite a few different blade styles.

Cookie, I agree about the correct blade for slashing the bread.   However I also find that the nature of the dough has a lot to do with how successful it is.
Marinas suggestion is worth checking out.

Marina I will post the recipe for this No  - Time Bread. It has a dense fine crumb. Complete different technique to make.  2, 25 second bursts in the microwave.

A good idea Marina. I will try and source a scalpel. I can press hard on the top of that without fear of cutting myself.

Today I made a date bread which I like the taste of but no one else does. It was based on a recipe in the latest Delicious magazine. Classic Bread and this bread https://www.forumthermomix.com/index.php?topic=17427.0
I fooled around with it though and used spelt, rye and white flour and increased the SD starter to 150g.
