Just a nice white bread loaf with a crackly crust. (finding the recipe...)

Edit: Recipe

1-1/2 tablespoons granulated yeast (about 1-1/2 packets)
1-1/2 tablespoons kosher salt
6-1/2 cups unbleached flour, plus extra for dusting dough
Cornmeal
In a large plastic resealable container, mix yeast and salt into 3 cups lukewarm (about 100 degrees) water. Using a large spoon, stir in flour, mixing until mixture is uniformly moist with no dry patches. Do not knead. Dough will be wet and loose enough to conform to shape of plastic container. Cover, but not with an airtight lid.

Let dough rise at room temperature, until dough begins to flatten on top or collapse, at least 2 hours and up to 5 hours. (At this point, dough can be refrigerated up to 2 weeks; refrigerated dough is easier to work with than room-temperature dough, so the authors recommend that first-time bakers refrigerate dough overnight or at least 3 hours.)

When ready to bake, sprinkle cornmeal on a pizza peel. Place a broiler pan on bottom rack of oven. Place baking stone on middle rack and preheat oven to 450 degrees, preheating baking stone for at least 20 minutes.

Sprinkle a little flour on dough and on your hands. Pull dough up and, using a serrated knife, cut off a grapefruit-size piece (about 1 pound). Working for 30 to 60 seconds (and adding flour as needed to prevent dough from sticking to hands; most dusting flour will fall off, it's not intended to be incorporated into dough), turn dough in hands, gently stretching surface of dough, rotating ball a quarter-turn as you go, creating a rounded top and a bunched bottom.

Place shaped dough on prepared pizza peel and let rest, uncovered, for 40 minutes. Repeat with remaining dough or refrigerate it in lidded container. (Even one day's storage improves flavor and texture of bread. Dough can also be frozen in 1-pound portions in airtight containers and defrosted overnight in refrigerator prior to baking day.) Dust dough with flour.

Using a serrated knife, slash top of dough in three parallel, 1/4-inch deep cuts (or in a tic-tac-toe pattern). Slide dough onto preheated baking stone. Pour 1 cup hot tap water into broiler pan and quickly close oven door to trap steam. Bake until crust is well-browned and firm to the touch, about 30 minutes. Remove from oven to a wire rack and cool completely.

I make a lasagna-type thing, using little shells or bowties instead of lasagna noodles. Standard layers of ricotta/mozz filling. Jarred pasta sauce. Just be sure to mix the noodles with one jar of sauce before layering. Then have a second batch/jar of pasta sauce on hand to coat the top when baking. You can actually add a little bit of water to the second batch when using it to keep everyting moist when it's in the crockpot sleeve for keeping it hot on the buffet table.

I would *not* recommend an alfredo or cream based sauce. They tend to separate over time, so they aren't the best for this sort of situation.

Over on FB, Jopo mentioned that he was crazy, busy at work and that he had been sick (naybe flu) recently. That was a couple of weeks ago. I bet he's still crazy, busy with work.

The way you have your commas, you are stating that he is both crazy and busy with work. Which I guess is true. He is crazy. Crazy just like the rest of us.

Went to lunch at the Thai place I try to hit every week. They're always really nice and the owner will slip me chicken wings or ice cream or whatever sometimes. I had some Brandini Bites with me since I took my last tin out of the fridge now that more's on the way. Anyway gave them some bites, was really cute to watch them smile as they bit into it

If you're interested in ordering, contact mr sanity, too; he's been ordering as if cigars will no longer be ava in the future (kinda like I've been ordering wine the last month). He has some great deals lined up, and has so many cigars, he may need a new humidor.

Haha, understand. I was thinking of something like adblock (edit: see previous post.), where you can block specific images. (aka long cat on woot.) However, that won't help you if the first time you see the image is at work... Managers - pesky.
