Forgive me for saying so, but breadmaking might be just a tad bit overrated. Nah, we actually had fun, but it was a gooey, sticky mess, and the bread did not rise like we expected it to. It was my first time working with active yeast, so I likely did something wrong, but I can’t wait for us to try again. The bread turned out pretty dense, but it was still yummy when topped with butter.
And exactly what does Muhammad Ali have to do with this? Nothing, except we spent a good part of the afternoon reading “Who Is Muhammad Ali!” (published before his recent passing), and we watch dozens of video clips of him. It was fun teaching these girls about M.A. And learning more about him myself. He was quite the character!
