On an food/craft note, we finally successfully made sourdough! And by we I mean mostly my husband with me as a backseat Baker 😜  

Took like 3 weeks from flour to starter to levin to bread

That looks freaking mouth-wateringly delicious. And you're in CA so you probably used the right yeast, yeah?! The good ol' San Francisco yeast?! It's different out in the east coast - different yeast, so different taste. Not sour enough, not enough bite. It's a disappointment every time.

Not much better than freshly home made bread.

@Barb Bliss @Konas Yeah, that was our test board, which has become my favorite backdrop. 

My husband and I are working on a table topper, something to allow the old dinning table to fit KDM. Figured what better way to add character to ply than to burn patterns in. 😊 FYI, It takes FOREVER to burn!!! But we’ll have a topper eventually 👌🏻

 

Pics of this when you get it done/ close to finished, please.

It’s Oakland yeast 😜

Probably would have been easier to get yeast and go from there, but he literally made it from scratch. You start with a 50/50 mixture of bread/wheat flour and add water. Everything is mixed with the hands so you get yeast from the flour, air and hands. It takes ~20 feedings (1/day) till you start seeing decent progress. Followed the instructions in the Tartine Bread book.

Will do. It’s a project that’s a bit lower on the priority list, so it may be a month or so before we finish.

Even low priority you will probably have yours done before we do anything with our big wooden spool I want made into an outdoor table : ).

We snatched up the spool from a free lot last summer and that was about all we have done :).

I know those projects all too well. 😄 I love it! My husband on the other hand, is not fond of the 'stuff that'll one day be awesome!' pile.

These are lovely, though I like the top 2 better than the bottom one.  I need to get my piercings repunched.
