Another night of extreme dreaming and another day of feeling like death. I was supposed to meet my family for lunch this afternoon and about an hour before leaving I received a call that we had to postpone. I was so happy as I hadn't even made it out of bed yet. I lay down for another half hour before getting up and trying to move through my day.
It led me me outside to water and tend my little garden. Then to the studio, where I played with paint and glitter. And lastly to the kitchen where I had an Amish Friendship Bread starter to tend. It was day 10 (or maybe 11) so I needed to bake with it today. I made four small loaves and had enough batter left for four muffins. I made the basic recipe (without the pudding) but at the link above you can find many recipes to use your starter. I've already printed off a few to try, but as I'm now out of milk and sugar, I'll have to wait. I ended up with five more cups of starter. I've frozen one for use at another time, and I plan to give two to my mum (even though she only asked for one!). I'll probably bake up the last two with different recipes. The breads freeze really well, so that helps.
I am so tired now, but the Isner/Federer US Open match just got underway and I really want to watch it. I'm going to try to tough it out.
I hope you have had a wonderful day today and were able to do something fun.
Anyone have any favorite bread recipes to share? I'm loving spending time in the kitchen lately. How about you?
thanks for stopping by,
love & blessings
