Bread that actually turned out!

Today, excited by my recent acquisition of Elizabeth David's English Bread and Yeast Cookery, I decided to make a nice loaf of bread.  I used her recipe for 'a basic loaf'.  It turned out wonderfully!  Thayer thinks it's the best basic loaf we've ever made.  It's light and has a nice and rich flavor to it, considering that it's just flour, water, and yeast.  My shaping leaves a little something to be desired, but otherwise... mmmm.

Also, my mom sent me this pretty little rock that she found on the shore of Lake Michigan.  Doesn't it make a cool necklace?
