Then the kids grew up and moved out. My Dear Motorcycle Dude and I didn't need as much bread. My sourdough starter died of neglect. It was sad, very sad.
Then, I was browsing the King Arthur Flour catalog and saw sourdough starter. I couldn't resist. I ordered it. I read the information on the care and feeding of sourdough starter. Feed the starter within 24 hours of receipt of the starter. Ok, I can do that. I waited, semi-patiently, for the email announcing shipment of my order.
I got the email! Yeah, it was coming. Oh no! It was going to be delivered while I was scheduled to be in California. That meant my Dear Motorcycle Dude was going to have to feed my starter. I printed the information so that he could feed and care for my precious starter. He did, and he did a wonderful job. I shouldn't have worried at all.
I've been back for a little over a week. I've used it to make pizza crust. Yummy!
Today, I'm making hamburger buns and small round loaves.
Here is the dough rising.
And now, time for dinner!
