I think I’m outta shape in the bread-making departments. Probably a little too nervous to add all the liquid I should have – not wet enough a dough. That’s all. Nothing major. I knew it from the first turn of the dough.
Had a nice dinner with the family – Peg made a delish chicken, corn and potato chowder so with the bread and a salad we all went home with happy tums.
Came home and watched, nay, sobbed over Downton Abbey. Geesh Louise. Way to go to kill off the sweetest baby sister and at the hands of a couple patriarchal men. Way to set off the budding suffragette sister? It’s ok. But damn, I just wasn’t expecting it.
Ironed some fabric and now what? I think there’s some laundry waiting to be put away. I’m sure I can handle that while sniffling over Sybil.
Sweet china dish
I see you there each night
filled with milk for me,
bit of bread leaning
on the golden rim.
If I come early
I might see you
there on the table
with a pat of butter
ready for my favorite
to grace her bigger slice.
Then she wipes you
with the bread she set aside
she adorns it with
a slice of berry
she fills the dish
from the creamer
and sets it on the sill
for my nightly repast.
Cutting (and finding) of many green strips continues. Pretty confident I have enough darks. Not so confident about the lights. What if I have to buy more lights?? Oh noes!!!
Then of course these will have to get cut into squares. That goes pretty quickly.
Pooped. I’m going to crawl into bed. I’ve got biga and poolish ready for pizza and bread. There might be some kitchen time tomorrow.
Yet another rainy, stormy day. Cats kept checking in with me. The Dink insists on laying too near wherever I’m working and that often gets her stepped on or yelled at. She doesn’t seem to take it personal.
Mainly she hung out while I cooked. I made Brandon’s grandmother’s skillet dinner: ground meat, sliced cabbage, ro-tel, elbow macaconi. Cooking and eating magic.
Then it was on to the main event: pizza from the biga I started last night. The dough was well-behaved even if I was a bit out of practice.
By the time it was time to put it in the oven I was more than ready to eat it! And it was delicious!
Now I’m finishing the bottom sleeve and I just pinned on the label. The end is nigh. I’m pondering the whole seasonal palette thing while stitching. Apparently I wasn’t the only thing who asked about the shorter time frame. Anyway, it will be nice to finish this one.
Wound #14, 15 and 16 and put 14 in.
