31 Days of Bread in July!

Yesterday we made Chapatis.  They weren't on the list of top 10 favorites for sure, but maybe it was the recipe I used.  I just looked up a recipe for Chapatis and found a good recipe here.  It is actually a video with a woman showing how to make it.  It was fascinating to see how she got her bread to puff up.  My recipe definitely was a bad one.  There was twice as much flour and half as much water as hers.  I am going to try hers and see if I can make it work.  My only problem was that she said there was 1/2 cup wheat flour and 1/2 cup water, but her cups were two different sizes, so I am not sure what the real measurements should be.  Let me know if you figure it out!  I just found her recipe here and it says to use 1 cup of wheat flour, etc.  If you want to try it, look at the recipe, but the video was very interesting to watch and I would definitely watch it before making them.

Today I am making Pita bread to go with homemade hummus with olive oil and ground lamb on top.  I love homemade pita bread!

 I ended up making the pita bread a bit thicker than usual.  I cut them into triangles to serve.  None of them rose up with a hole in the center like usual, but they were softer and perfect for dipping.  My daughter loved them that way.
