TWD - Semolina Bread

I made this bread early as my family, along with my mom and dad, will be in Spain on the Tuesday this will post.  We are all pretty excited about the trip, so I didn't give this bread much thought.  But it turned out to be a great bread.  In fact it was my son's favorite TWD endeavor so far.
I made the sponge first as directed, but did not find it to double in size.  I called Mom about this and she said not to worry as long as it was bubbling.  It was, so I proceeded.
The first rise did double in size, so I moved on to the next step.
The second rising went well, until I deflated it try to make the slashes in the bread described in the book.  But it all worked out in the end and we all loved the bread.  I didn't find it to be too salty as some commented until the second day.
This recipe is a keeper.  Although it took most of the day to make this bread, I think it's a perfect bread to make when hanging out at home all day.
