Yesterday was baking day using a new sourdough recipe. I wanted a lighter bread to use for tomorrow welsh rarebit dinner and this one fills the bill. I made a mistake on the size for the last rise and wound up with a loaf the size and shape of a ciabatta; but the bread texture and taste are very good. I think this one will make great toast. Next time I'll add some whole wheat (25% of the flour in the recipe), to make it a bit healthier.
This morning I made sourdough pancakes.. Daughter and her husband leave Wednesday, so I'll be able to get back to the studio to finish decorating. If weather permits, I need to plant peas and spinach sometime this week. I'm so glad I started this work cycle earlier so I have plenty of time for the garden, baking bread and family visits.
