Got a mix going tonight. Usings the Clever Carrot SD recipe. Got 10 lbs of KA high gluten flour yesterday so lets see how this turns out. I thought the price of meat would be a tad cheaper here than it was in Naples......Not by much so my sausage making is on the back burner for while until i can get on post to the commissary and check prices.

All mixed and now 1 hour for autolyse (resting after mixing) covered.
Not purdy yet.

Your right Rick, if you make your own bread it doesn’t cost that much. Judy grows our own broccoli, mung bean, and radish sprouts. I eat them for lunch every day, & I put them in her homemade pita bread. We’re ready for the apocalypse.
