Happy Anniversary

February 20, 2008 at 10:14 am 4 comments

No, it’s not my wedding anniversary, that was here. It’s not my blog-iversary, that’s not until July.

My sourdough starter is a year old! I take this as a point of personal triumph. (It’s good that little things make me happy). After all, I’ve heard the horror stories of the black sludge that overcomes many starters. It’s certainly lasted a lot longer than my original attempt when I lived in the motherland of sourdough – the SF Bay area.

We’ve enjoyed the standby sourdough loaf for sandwiches, soup bowls and spinach dip bowls (yum); the whole wheat sourdough, and the sourdough oatmeal bread. I actually bought the giant 25 lb. bag of King Arthur flour on my last Costco run. I guess that means I’m into the bread baking for the long haul.

    Congratulations, I’ve never had sourdough starter live that long at my house.

    Ah, I feel like I can smell the bread from here! Baked bread is so wonderful….

    Happy Birthday, Sourdough Starter!

    *made me giggle to hear. I don’t have any starters, unless you count dust bunnies and grout mold.

    I have those starters too, unfortunately, I’m sure they’re more than a year old… eep.
