When times get tough, the tough bake
I used to bake two or three loaves of bread a week. Two or three depended on the recipe output and bread pans or a lump on the baking stone. I fell out of the habit when we were living in a space that boasted a toaster oven as the primary baking equipment. I've returned to baking some but not every week.
But I find it comforting to have a home baked loaf of bread sitting on the counter waiting for butter whenever I feel like adding some. I've got some wonderful sunflower seed semi-whole wheat rising now. It is my go to bread as I've made it so many times it never fails and always makes the best toast in the world.
And I discovered I had some long shelf life cream that needed to be whipped so I threw together a batch of brownies which are cooking while the bread rises.
I discovered a web site put together by a couple of University of Texas students that finds specific items you might be looking for and tells you how much is in stock in a list of stores. So I found some flour. Not what I normally get but it will do and it is on the shelf. Of Walgreens of all places. Also where my distilled water for my CPAP can be found. Here is the site. I'll be verifying their info but they are right about what is missing on the Walmart shelves I'm hopeful. This helps me target shop for specifics keeping me from wandering isles.
