Spring and other things
I loved your story about your starter, Amy. Mine’s been in that funky grey-black state from time to time too. And it does come back. Amazingly.
Wishing you well. I’d love another intuitive baking class (via Zoom in my case), should you and Ellie do one again. Learned so much. Happy Easter!
Love to you
Hi Amy, I'm registered for your class with Jennifer Lapidus at the Asheville Bread Festival. The book Breadsong was lovely, but Southern Ground still is the one I never tire of paging through. Looking forward to meeting you, Barb Newton
Yeah, I can see why you don't need to bake much now. My husband eats a lot of bread and cookies and crackers; if he wasn't here, Sir Bobby Farts-Alot would only come out to play once a week instead of 3 times! But I micro-feed once a week and take out only 10g of Bobby to make a Levain every time I bake. Cookies and crackers are my perfect use of the 30g of Bobby when I refresh; otherwise, I have not discard. I don't have a sweet tooth much; one cookie of that batch of 12 is all I need- my husband gets the rest.
Books are great - but I mostly read my Kindle since I can't figure out how to enlarge the print in a paper book! I'm old -- and so are my eyes. Reading glasses ae uncomfortable and I read a lot; to learn something new (like how grow sprouts and incorporate them into my diet; how to make tempeh & tofu & what's all the hubbab about the microbiome). But I use my kindle to be transported to worlds unreal where magic rules and crooked presidents get their asses kicked - just because they're bullies. It's so much faster in books than in reality. The news are frustrating and give me heartburn. So I take my kombucha and walk in the woods. The trees are my friends and their barks remind me of bread crust - perfectly breaking. :) Happy Holidays!
