I baked this loaf of 'no-knead bread' this week.
The recipe is known and enjoyed by many - so many versions of it are
available on the Internet - I use Jenny Jones because she's so much fun to
watch on her video. It turned out well and gave me that sense of enjoyment
possible from a simple, basic, homey food made in one's own kitchen
on a dreary day.
Yesterday I decided to also get going on my 'sourdough starter'
in hopes I can make a loaf of real sourdough bread soon.
The amaryllis tale continues here in the dining room.
The first four blooms on the initial stem are almost over, in fact two have been
nipped off, the remaining two now fading also. However, the second stem is now
showing three new buds - a total of seven delightful flowers from one bulb.
Meanwhile the second bulb is in full bloom with four perfect flowers. . . . . . . I feel
like I'm in a garden.
