Family Bread Baking

So far, this weekend I have done five wonderful hours of homework and prepared 4 loaves of bread. I made dough with my mom last night and then my aunt and cousin came over and I decided they wanted bread dough, too. (Of course, their dough turned out better than our dough)

This morning I got up and shaped loaves with my mom. Now, I have this to look forward to for dinner:
See how the left hand loaf has "oven bloom?" It looks like a big loaf is eating a small loaf. But really it just got so hot and explosive in the oven it shot out its own side. I can still hear the loaves applauding from the kitchen. Mmmmmmmmm

I can smell that delicious bread smell from here.

I can smell it in Delaware. But the one loaf looks like it has a tumor. I think you should operate on that part before dinner:+)
