Ingredients
3 cups all purpose flour
1¾ tsp salt
½ tsp active dry yeast
1½ cups water (room temperature)

Instructions

1.In a big bowl mix flour, salt and yeast together. Pour water into the bowl and using a spatula mix it until it's all incorporated. Cover the bowl with plastic wrap and let it sit on your counter for 12 to 18 hours.

2.Preheat oven to 450 F degrees. Add your cast iron pot to the oven and heat it as well until it's at 450 F degrees.

3.Remove pot from oven and remove the lid from it.

4.Flour your work surface really well and make sure you flour your hands really well. With your floured hands gently remove the dough from the bowl and roughly shape it into a ball. Take the ball of dough and drop it into the pot. Cover the pot with the lid and place it back in the oven.

5.Bake for 30 minutes with the lid on, after which remove the lid and bake for another 15 to 20 minutes until golden brown.

6.Remove from the oven and let cool.


Note - I had a cast iron fry pan but no lid so I used the bottom half of my braising pot as the lid. See one of the photos

Hello Ivy - was down in your neck of the wood last week. Went to Eatily and checked the place out. It surely is amazing.

Before that we went to see the spring Spectactular show are Radio City and had dinner at Carmines.

Hello Franklin, I really like Eataly but have not been their lately. Remember when they first opened and I took photos of the meat section? I went back a couple of times but found the food a bit price for daily lunch visits. Work not too far from there.

Would love to try the fried calamari if I go to Carmines.

Plan to go with at least 3 people because the servings are huge. Hilarious!

It is so good to hear from you and yes, I remember your photo of the meat counter and it still looks the same except for the prices.

no matter how long it's been between my trips to NY it seems the city never changes. I worked there most of my adult life but I could not never live there.

how are you doing?? are you getting close to retirement age or should I never ask a woman that. Hilarious! Hilarious!

I will officially become a senior and can retire in September of this year 2015. At that time will be 66 years old and have 41 years of employment under my belt.

Looking forward to trying out the crusty bread recipe when I no longer work.

Good for you. Is the 41 years with the same company. ?? If it is you will have a giant pension package to look forward to. I make more money now that I am retired then I did while I was working. 😀😀

Retirement is great.

When I was young, did not opt for a pension deduction. Decided to do it much later but could not afford the retroactive and current amount coming out at the same time. But I will be doing great on what I will receive from my retirement. Planning on leaving NYC in a few years and the money will go much further.

Where are you thinking of moving. I understand North Carolina and Kentucky are great for retirement

Glad younwill be set in your retirement. So many people do make the mistake of not planning ahead

Thinking of North Carolina but my family is exploring the idea of moving South near Virginia or near by. Looking to have a little dirt/land to dig in. So I will see in time what direction looks good. Don't drive so I will not be living too far from the city or a retirement community. There is always some type of transportation near there.

Have you looked into retirement communities?? Some of them are fantastic.

I have thought of retirement communities but want to live near them. Many have activities for seniors that are not residents or may be connected to some of the major hospitals that are farther away. Thinking of places that use or offer public transportation. I don't drive Shrug! .

I just got my AARP magazine and there is an article about the most livable neighborhoods and the most livable cities in which to live.

For neighborhoods number 1 was Miffin West, in Madison , Wisconsin
Number 2 was Upper West Side, Manhattanb. 3 was in Boston. 5 was Washburn, La Crosse, Wisconsin.

As far as cities go 5 top spots were in Wisconsin

If you do not belong to AARP I suggest you do join, especially if you plan on getting supplemental medical insurance. I don't know what you have but I can't say enough about United Health Care. My premiums for me and Deb are $416.00 a month ( it will probably be half of that for you) but I have no co-pays at all, I can go to any doctor here and out of the country as long as they take Medicare. All tier 1 drugs are free. Deb recently had knee replacement. She was in the hospital for 7 days and then a rehab hospital for another week and we didn't have to psy a cent.

If you have any questions you think I can help,you with let me know.

Happy Mother's Day.

Thanks.
