French Bread

I got this recipe from my friend Mindy, who got it from her Mother=in-law who is a great baker. It is so easy, and sooo yummy. I used it for sloppy joes and sandwiches, but it would be delish as garlic bread too. This is the first french bread I've made and liked.

2 c warm water
2 T sugar
1 T yeast

Stir the above together, let rest a few minutes till you see yeast working.
2 T oil
4-5 c flour (never more than 5)
1 t. salt

Mix together. It will be sticky. Put in a bowl with shortening. Let rise 1 hr. Shape into 2 loaves on cookie sheet and let rise 30 min. more.
Bake 20-25 min. at 400 degrees.
