pane - Echoes of Flavio's Ghost Dreaming
I should make bread, haven't done for a long time. Or maybe I should say 'attempt' to make bread -my attempts at making home-brew sourdough starter have more or less failed ... so I end up resorting to bought yeast. Much to learn, still.

In the meantime, of course, there are other calls on my time. Have to do a few lessons today (and prepare for a couple of them). Tomorrow and Tuesday will be busy school days.. Thursday looks like a free day except for one evening lesson. It'll be then. Now, about that dough starter...

My sourdough was wonderful ... right up to the point where it went rogue. I threw it out but I suspect it would have made great focaccia type bread given the amount of liquid it produced.

I should try again, it was fun, like having a pet you could keep in the fridge.

Funny thought, that. I suppose it is, in a kind of way-it is a living thing that you're keeping, isn't it. I haven't yet got that right. The sourdough starter, that is.

Mine thrived (throve???) only too well, pity it didn't really do so well on the making usable dough part.

Hnn... Keep telling myself I'm going to bake but I keep finding other things to do(:

Exactly, same here. But, as with guitar practice, it is a matter of finding the time. The time is there, it just has to be eked out and stretched like pizza base dough... (er, that's a confusing image... never mind...)
