Mix together flour, sugar, salt, baking soda and yeast in a large bowl.
Combine milk, water and oil in a pan and heat to 120-130. Use a thermometer to be accurate. The liquid will feel quite hot (hotter than lukewarm but not too hot!)
Pour the liquid into the dry ingredients
Mix for 1-2 minutes or until dough is soft.
Lightly grease a 8 1/2 x 4 1/2 bread pan and sprinkle with cornmeal.
Scoop the dough into the pan and level it off.
Cover the pan and allow to rise until the dough is about 1/4" above the rim of the pan. (about one hour)
Preheat oven to 400 and bake for 20-25 minutes or until bread is golden brown.
Allow to sit in pan for 5 minutes to cool and then remove to a rack for further cooling. Let bread cool before slicing.
