My Bread: Day Two

Pane all' Olive...  The finished product

I am not a fan of Mondays.  Are any of us?  I guess there are those virtuous few who face the week with a "can do" attitude but it takes me until at least Tuesday to get on track for any real accomplishment.  Nonetheless, this morning I popped out of bed with purpose.  I had to check on my bread dough.

The dough had been rising for  little over 12 hours and was bubbly and sticky.  It wasn't quite doubled in size yet so I went upstairs to get dressed and clean things up around here.  By the time I got home from dropping Kate off at school, the dough was ready for its second rise.

After a brief second rise, it was into the oven for about 40 minutes.  After just 17 hours I had the most beautiful and tasty olive bread.
After the first rise.

And just out of the oven.
Good things come to those who wait.
