Kinda feels good, doesn't it?

Good question (and I like your post, too):

I'll go into more detail in step 6, "Go Shopping," but basically though I meal plan for two weeks in advance, and make my shopping list only that often, I go to the store more frequently.

I live in walking distance of a farmer's market, so I'm able to buy fruits and veggies twice a week. We either buy meat weekly or freeze what we won't use that week. Other things, though, like flour, tomato paste, oats, jelly, rice, milk powder, baking powder and soda, vinegar, soy sauce... and more, I just buy as needed the weekend after I choose my meal plan. We don't have a vehicle, and this way I never need to buy more than what I can carry walking home.

The Artisan Bread in Five method is supposed to be really flexible with yeast; you can even put the dough in the refrigerator to rise slowly, overnight. I live in rural China where our yeast isn't as high-quality as what people in the U.S. use, so I do everything they say BUT I microwave my water for 30 seconds first, add the yeast into it, and let it stand while I mix the flour with the salt and whatever other ingredients. It works fine for me, and I don't have to buy expensive imported yeast like many other expats here who bake but find that the local yeast won't rise. Let me know whether this helps... :)

What a flexible recipe! I'll be trying that with the preserves I have around here! Thanks a bunch for the link.
