The Summer Heatwave...and could it get this hot??...I don't know.   Just from this afternoon and now the temp has gone up another degree.   This is "in the shade" temp readings at 421PM. 

But on to my favorite sandwich. 

I found this recipe many years ago and don't even remember where it came from.   All I can say....this really makes a great bread for toasting and slicing for sandwiches.    The texture is remarkably similar to English Muffins.   I just love to get a "hot off the vine" tomato, freshly sliced with cucumbers and mayo....what a great summer sandwich treat.

English Muffin Bread

Breads, Muffins

1 pkg dry yeast or 
1 1/2 ts instant yeast
1 1/2 teaspoon sugar
1/4 cup water, 105F.
1 ts salt
1 c whole milk
2 2/3 c flour
  yellow cornmeal

Dissolve the yeast and sugar in the warm water (105F). Let stand until the yeast foams in about 5 minutes.

Scald the milk and let cool until warm (110F).

Add the salt, milk and just under 1/2 of the flour. Beat until smooth and elastic. Beat in the remaining flour to make a dough that is stiff but too soft of knead.

Grease a 8 x 4 x 2 " loaf pan. Sprinkle the inside of the pan with cornmeal. Turn the batter into the pan and pat the top smooth. Dust lightly with cornmeal.

Let the dough rise, uncovered, until the dough almost fills the pan (about 45 minutes).

Preheat oven to 375F. Bake until golden and the loaf tests done (about 30 minutes). Remove from pan and cool.

I can see why it's your favorite sandwich! It sounds very good and the bread is a must try!

For crying out loud, that's pretty hot! It's 90 here now in the mid-afternoon---it has actually cooled down from what it was last week. We're not used to this stuff day after day. We generally have a couple of hot days, then cools down, etc. And storms, I can't remember ever having this many in one summer and lightning, geeze!!!!! Someone must've ticked off the storm god!

Have a cool evening, somehow!!!
