So I celebrated in the usual way – making Irish soda bread to take with fresh organic butter to every meeting I attended for about a week and a half. What fun!
I love making Irish soda bread – have a recipe from an Irish cookbook that I alter and add to as it feels right. This year, it was better than ever. I learned how to fold in the buttermilk faster and easier, with less dough handling. That’s what my cookbook writing friend says is needed – bread doesn’t like to be handled, according to her.
So it was a great week – can’t wait til next year.
