It's a rainy, gloomy day here but you won't hear me complaining! We are already many inches behind on rain for 2014. I was shocked by how dry it is in our planting beds. The couple of inches that just poured down are very welcome right now.
Rainy, cool days like this are my favorite for cooking and baking! Last week I found this post and decided to create my own sourdough starter by capturing wild yeast. I'm just fascinated by the stories of decades-old starter, kept alive and handed down through the generations. After just six days, this morning I had a sourdough lava flow out of the jar, across the counter, and pouring down the cabinet front. I think I definitely caught some yeast! Too bad I didn't think to photo that before cleaning it up :)
My hope is that we will sit down to dinner tonight with a fresh, hot loaf of crusty homemade sourdough bread. Does anyone have any advice to offer? I'm all ears!
