Maaaaaan I made the best bread today. I started the yeast beforehand, and by the time I got back to them they'd gone from a teaspoon of yeast in two teaspoons of water, to completely filling a one-cup bowl. RAAR. The bread went crazy, overfilled the bread machine, and when I did the second rise on the dough in the stove, it started to creep off the edge of the baking sheet.
So we went to a soiree -- walked, as it happens -- and I carried the bread. Put it down, and nobody touched it. Two hours passed.
Finally I cut off a piece and ate it, and it was fabulous.
And ten minutes later half the loaf was gone and everyone was saying "hey, this is the best bread EVER."

People are funny.
