Day 7... Winter Day

Well out of a 50% chance of snow we did get a bit of sleet and a few flakes of snow with some much needed rain but no freezing rain. I was going to go outside and see what I could find . Too cold to do that I came inside and looked at the cat on the heater vent and said " Your a smart one". Well outside of playing on the computer what else do I enjoy doing on a cold, grey day. Reading. So I grabbed a blanket a cup of the all mighty Coffee and a good book.

Passing Time on a Cold Winter Day

A good baking book is as good or better than a novel in my humble opinion . It is my other hobby that I love. Sourdough is among my favorite type of bread something special about the process. It is slower than breads with quick rising yeast and has a lovely flavor.   Reminds me a bit of photography in the simplicity of the formula . ISO, Shutter Speed, Aperture, for photography. Sourdough is basically Flour, Water, Salt. The starter is just flour and water that has wild yeast and beneficial bacteria in it  . Neither hobby produces good results if you rush things or neglect 1 part of the process but the variety of results from the 3 basic parts is staggering if you think about it.  What are some things that could make this a better photo and what are some of the breads you love to eat? Thank you for taking the time to spend a moment with me on my journey.

Ohhh! Yum--I love a good sourdough too! I also really love to keep and tend to my starter--it's silly, but it's almost like a child to me! Hahah! Glad to see I'm not the only bread breaker around here. Thanks for sharing!

Quite welcome . I understand about it being like a child, I think of it as a living being that I have claimed responsibility for .
