You may recall in a post a few days ago I mentioned transporting sour dough starter across state lines. Well, that was not how I described it but that is what I did. I brought home sour dough starter from Virginia. And Saturday I baked 3 loaves of bread. I meant to take pictures of the loaves fresh out of the oven, but we dove into the first loaf so fast that all thoughts of a camera were left in the dark corners of my brain, crowded out by the smell and anticipation of the taste of warm bread. If I do say so myself (as my Great Grandmother used to say) it was delicious. Thank you Ann McConnell for the starter and recipe! I gave one of the remaining 2 loaves to our pastor and his wife, she is from Radford, VA which is pretty much where the starter originated from. I will, as the recipe says to, pass on a cup to a friend. And I "fed" the remaining starter so it lives on and I can keep making bread. Wahoo!
Still need to post a few pictures from vacation. Will get to that soon. Have been painting a bowl of tomatoes too. It's coming along. I moved on from another painting that was holding me back on painting altogether. In the meantime I have had another idea about how I could paint the same scene and have more fun with it. It's time to paint a Christmas Card, or two or three which means I have to start looking through old winter photographs and old Christmas cards for "inspiration".
