Repeats

Repeats.

Sometimes baking and cooking challenges produce such delicious results that you just have to bake/cook them again.

Case in point: the Russian Black Bread from early in the month.

I really loved the flavor of this bread, and since my rye starter was happily bubbling away, I decided to make a more user-friendly-shaped loaf before I relegated the starter back to refrigerated hibernation.

The dough started out looking like this:




But ended up looking like this:



This bread makes the best sandwiches.


Sorry, but no photos of the 'wiches -- they get eaten too quickly!



This week there were also repeats of the Flaky Apple Turnovers and the Yellow Curry Sauce.

For the turnovers, I used the remaining scraps of dough and the leftover apple filling. These turnovers are just too delicious. I will certainly make these again and try out different fillings. Lemon comes to mind at the moment.

The yellow curry was a tremendous hit. I whipped it up quickly on Thursday night and just served it over rice. Now I need to replenish my supply of dried coconut milk, and perhaps even keep some canned milk in the pantry.

I've been eating up the black bread with salmon and a parsley dill sauce - delicious! I have to agree, it is one awesome bread!

They look great! I love that you made them in loaf form for easy sammies.
