So I never lose the recipe again.

Mix together in order of list:

2 1/2 c warm (not hot) water
2 tsp salt
1/4 c sugar or honey
1 1/2 tbsp yeast
1/3 c fat (olive oil, or lard, or butter)

Optional 1 tbsp of one or more of the following:
Wheat germ, bulger, oats, flax, millet, etc.

3 c whole wheat flour

Stir to mix then beat by hand at least 100 strokes.

Add 1-2 c white flour

Add 1-3 c whole wheat flour, add by 1/4 cups or thereabouts so as to not add too much.  It should end up not sticking to fingers but not very dry feeling.

Rise until doubled while covered with a bowl or clean towel, and punch down.  Repeat this step once or twice or three times... if you like, it's not necessary.

Shape into two loaves and let rise in greased 9x5 bread pans (about 20-30 minutes).

Bake in preheated 350 oven for about 25-30 minutes and cool on racks.
