The baker comes back in Sunday night and I told him before he left that he doesn't have to come in to work till Tuesday so he would have Monday to rest so I may get to bake a little more on Monday BUT...
In my two weeks of being able to cover that 'baking' side of things I managed to bake quite a lot while also getting my other responsibilities done as the galley manager. I still took weekends off because I had baked enough bread to carry me through Saturday & Sunday. I enjoyed myself.
In the last 2 weeks in bakery:
- Baked approximately 1200 loaves of bread (white & wheat combined total)
- Biscotti 300-400 pieces
- Dinner Rolls 400
- Herb & Olive Rolls 400
- Focaccia 400+ pieces
- Jalapeno Cheddar Bread 400+ slices
- Cinnamon Rolls 700+ (Twice @ 350 average)
- Brownies 350
- Pieces/slices of Pizza 1100
Back to cracking the whip next week and maybe working on some new recipes for the menu. It was a good time to renew in my mind the possibilities of what can and could be done in the bakery...maybe in the future I can get around to a few things I was thinking of but didn't have time for such as: coffee cake, muffins, breakfast breads, garlic cheese biscuits, breakfast biscuits, etc. Just to name a few things I was considering.
