A few days ago, I thought the weather was finally cooling, so I decided to bake bread. I made a biga the night before with just some flour, water, and yeast. I let it sit out for an hour or two before chucking the whole thing in the fridge to develop.
The next day, I added more flour, water, and salt and let the dough rise for an hour (until it doubled). Tried to shape it into a loaf, let it rise for another half hour, and stuck it in the oven at 500 degrees for about 25 minutes. We slapped on some leftover dip from our dips party, some slices of tomato and avocado and voila: leftover sandwiches.
