I might drag Dala grocery shopping tomorrow morning to get the ingredients to make something. I'm thinking about another soda bread. I like them. They're easier to make.

So since rd95 had to work I went ahead and made the soda bread without him. I tried to time it to his arrival home from work so there would be fresh warm bread waiting for him. Decided to use up some of last week's rye flour and so here is a very brain-esque rye soda bread:

Of course the instructions always say to let cool completely before you slice but eff that, bread is best enjoyed just below face melting temperature. If that makes me a bad person or some kind of barbarian, pass me a loincloth, baby.

The soda bread I made tonight kinda reminded me of a biscuit only with rye flour in it. I don't think I have ever made my own biscuits, now that I think of it. I should remedy that.

Is this before or after we make molasses cookies?

Soda breads were how I got into baking, but I haven't made them in ages.

I think this was the recipe I used.

Now that I reflect on it, I should probably start making them again. There are a lot of week nights where I get frustrated with baking because I often lack foresight and basic time management skills.
