I wasn't going to update today. For one, I am leaving town early tomorrow morning, not to return until Sunday night, so I've been busy busy busy. For another, Hubs pretty much demolished this loaf before I could take any decent pictures. But then again: nothing can stop me from updating my blog, and this recipe seems pretty fitting for today. So after some packing and errand-running and whatnot, I made sure I took some pictures of the rest of this bread, just so I could post tonight.
Center a rack in oven; preheat to 350 F. Butter 9-by-5-inch loaf pan, dust with flour, and tap out excess. Put pan on a baking sheet.
