Bread for the working man - or partially stay at home mom

After a few semi-failed bread recipe attempts, this one, courtesy of  http://dacrestreetstudio.com/, has righteously taken the lead position. This recipe could not be simpler or more delicious.  

Take 4.5 cups of high grade flour, 1/2 a cup of mixed grains and seeds, 1 teaspoon salt, 1 teaspoon dry yeast, 2 cups of normal 'ol water and mix it in a bowl with a spoon of your choice. It should become stringy and come away from the sides of your bowl. Cover and leave for 12 hours - or for however long a person without children generally sleeps for. 

Pop the oven on to 200c and scoop your dough onto a floured counter top - cut in half and knead a bit - just enough to form two loaf like shapes. Bake in a vessel of your choice - we chose our handy wooden baking boxes. Bake for 20 minutes or so (if you used the wooden boxes - bake for 10 min, take the bread out of the structure and continue for a further 10 min to crust up the sides) and let it hang out 'til the next day before you dig in.
