floppy bread

Having a new puppy in the house is just like having a baby around. He needs LOTS of attention, he's very distracting, and routines need to be adjusted.

Yesterday was bread baking day. I did alright until the point where I set it for the second rise. Since it's been a bit cold I was doing the rise in the oven. After walking Tobi and starting on the after-school routine with the kids I completely forgot the bread. It overrose and started to deflate! Aaaaauuuugh. I baked it anyway. It's okay. Not great. The top is very flat and wrinkly looking and the crumb is nowhere near as nice as it normally is. A lesson to go back to using my timer for now.
