This makes two decent sized loaves, so for a 48 hour life expectancy of the bread, I’ll be making a double recipe to foster Co-op Love.  Also, this will insure that the Sabres win tonight, as the last time I listened to the game on the radio as I baked bread for the house, they did in fact win.  I’m sure this has deep and profound significance.  (The last game when we lost?  I wasn’t baking bread.  I was watching in High Definition at my sisters house, trying not to covet.  And failing.)
