Other Notes

The April 22, 2006 Bake-Off meeting had about 50 people attending. (We made some garlic rolls while the judging was going on.) I seem to recall counting about 63 entries in all the categories combined. I believe I noticed seven entries in the chocolate bread category, and two entries in the cracker bread/lavosh category.
