French bread

This is a quick and easy bread recipe.  And it's yummy! I often use about half whole wheat flour and the other half white flour.
This always seems especially good on a cold day with a hot bowl of soup. 
2 1/2 c warm water
2 Tbsp yeast
3 Tbsp sugar
1 Tbsp salt
1/3 c oil
6-7 c flour
Mix all ingredients together.  Add enough flour to make a firm,  not sticky,  dough.  Knead for 5 minutes.  Place in a greased bowl and cover with a towel.  Let rise until double.  Divide dough into 3 sections.  Grease a cookie sheet.  Form each portion of dough into a loaf shape and place it on the cookie sheet.  Slash each loaf 3 or 4 times with a sharp knife. Cover and let it rise until doubled. Bake at 375 for 25 minutes!
