James Beard’s Refrigerator Potato Bread

This is a rerun of this bread.  I liked it so much the first time, I decided to make it again.  I had both time challenges this week and have been dealing with a boil water order from our water department.  We had 12 inches of rain in 3 days and raised the turbidity of the water, so all of the residents have spent a considerable amount of time boiling and saving water.  So, with that in mind, I prepared the dough and left it in the fridge for 2 days.  The dough had risen somewhat and become rather stiff, in contrast to the usual very soft dough coming out of the cooler.  I let it rise twice in the bowl before forming 2 loaves in regular loaf pans.  It has just come out of the oven smells great, and I can hardly wait to tear into it.  Practicing restraint.
