Dog trainers like to say, “Slow is fast. Fast is slow.”
Our mothers told us, “Haste makes waste.”
I’ve fallen in love with a bread recipe that is supposed to take 60 seconds to put together.
Warm water in a glass bowl.
Sprinkle of yeast.
Flour, salt, stir.
Plastic wrap. Wait 8-12 hours.
I haven’t made it in under 6o seconds yet. Two nights ago I got it put together in three minutes, and was proud of myself.
Until I tasted it the next morning at breakfast, fresh from the oven.
I’d forgotten the salt.
