Nearly Prefect Breadboard

Thursday, December 5th, 2013

The holidays are a time when I bake bread, pies and rolls to share with my family.  To aid in preparing the dough a breadboard is needed and breadboards have gone the way of the buggy whip.  breadboardI was on my way to buy some hard Maple for a bread board when I stopped at the local Ikea for some Pastej Lax or as we call it, fish paste; when I stumbled upon the Lamplig Chopping Board.  For $10 this cutting board was turned over to make a nearly perfect breadboard.  The lip catches the edge of the counter and does not slip around when I am kneading the dough.  The backside is a little rough so you might have to clean it up with sandpaper.  For a real breadboard I would like it a little wider than the 18 inches and a little longer that the 20 3/4.  For only $10 I can live with it being a little on the small side.
