Oh dear, does anybody need a brick? Seem to have forgotten my sourdough loaf in the oven.......sigh. And I had been proving it since yesterday lunchtime - bugger.
Good plan, Bunny. I could use it to build a rockery!
Really enjoyed Foyle's War.
Very busy day today. 20 guests for Easter lunch in aid of Cancer Support. 22 to cook for (me & OH too). Went very well then I made rissoles with the left over lamb, so busy for ages then watched TV. Tired.
Sounds exhausting, Liz. Well done you!
Any rissoles left.......?
I have hacked the end of the brick off and it is good bread inside. Ready toasted......
I used to like Foyle when I had a telly, partly because I lived in Hastings for about 8 years and partly because I quite fancy Michael Kitchen.
Have been without since 2005. Don't miss it and I can watch stuff on iPlayer if I really want to - mostly cookery programmes!
Right, off to my stinkypit now. Sleep well, Forkers.
Good morning everyone.
Overcast here today, but mild enough to get out and do some of the jobs that really need doing. Repotting lilies, if they have survived the winter, and general tidy up etc.
Goldi, how do you make a sourdough starter, is it easy?
Your neighbouring allotment looks amazing, he must spend hours doing it, but a bit OTT.
Have a good day folks.
April 1st, no tricks that I know of so far. Apart from the tricksy weather forecast which is worse than was promised yesterday. We may have sun later in the morning for an hour or so but it's mostly cloud.
Not sure what I'm doing today, probably trimming and tidying.
Have a good day, one and all.
Morning all - sun's trying to shine here I've just driven OH to work and took a detour through the GC - got a new windowsill propagator for my tommies (it was a good deal and my old one was a cheapie and falling to bits), some chicken manure pellets BOGOF and some seed compost - guess who's feeling a bit better
Trimming and tidying garden stuff that's long overdue, Bunny . Though you mentioning compost reminds me I could do with some for seeds so maybe GC is a more enticing prospect
Cold again here, with grey skies.
Sourdough starter is easy. Just mix some flour and warm water to about the consistency of yoghurt and leave it lying around in the kitchen for a week, feeding it every day with a tablespoon of flour and more water. I used flour with malty bits because I thought it might help, but I know others just use normal bread flour. Some people put dried fruit or rhubarb in to start it off, but I didn't and mine seems to work fine.
