Paddycake, paddycake, baker's man...

For some reason I've been in a baking/cooking mode for the last month or so. I got it in my head that I want to learn how to make a wonderful loaf of bread from scratch. I was talking to some friends about this (hi Bev and Ken!) and they asked if I wanted some sourdough bread starter. Sure! Though it's something of a time consuming process - feed the starter, let it sit, scoop some off, feed again, let it sit, THEN actually make the bread, let it rise, shape the loaves, let it rise again (don't forget the second rise, mom...) - it was well worth the effort. Two loaves of delicious, homemade sourdough bread. Kevin's words: 'THIS is a winner!'
