The Bread Baker's Apprentice, French Bread

On Wednesday I realized I had to make a pre-ferment so I could make French Bread the next day. Of course I realized it at quarter to 10 when So You Think You Can Dance was almst over, but like a good baker I got up an made it, because I really didn't feal like going to bed at midnight just so I could watch it and refridgerate it.

I ended up going to bed a midnight anyway because I became hooked on a new anime called Toshokan Sensou....^^;;

Anyway, I started at around 10 I think, and it was out of the oven around 3.

When I pulled the bread out of the oven and saw it grinning it made me grin myself. This is the best I've done so far at cutting the dough before it bakes!

Of course my bread is still inconsistent, and the slashing looks better at the top of the one then on the rest of 'em, but it made me happy!
