First attempt at bread making - boules!

I decided to try out Meg's favorite technique for baking fresh bread (from the Artisan Bread in Five Minutes a Day book).  Not bad.  Maybe a little under-done. Will go get a thermometer to see if my oven temp needs to be adjusted.  

Basic ingredients ready to go
Dough mixed and ready for rising
Using plastic cutting board as a pizza peel
In the oven
Two.  Two wonderful boules!!   Mwa ah ah...
Thinking of making pizzas with the remaining dough along the lines of what Jim Lahey made in his kitchen at Co. on the Anthony Bourdain No Reservations "Obsessed" episode.
