Bread

A 4-post collection

Tuesday, Day 0, PLNs

Five new cases, according to the government site. Thirty total cases. Twenty-five of those are in hospital. Yeeks. It is definitely hide-under-a-rock time for me. I'm not back into the mask yet, because there's nothing out loose.

I'm still terrified that some strain or another escaping captivity and running rife through my neck of the woods. Hence my disinclination to go very far from home.

  • Right-wing billionaire dies in helicopter crash and French President pays tribute
  • Changes make the morning after pill more accessible
  • Russia accused of spreading vaccine lies
  • Rural areas of Victoria want to become a new state... I'm sensing a pattern

Bread Day the Second!

I got enough wholemeal flour to make a loaf and keep the starter alive, so I'm making some proper sourdough that hopefully won't go flat as a tack this time.

I also made some pancakes and I think I've perfected the recipe enough that I can put the final version up on my foodie blog.

The bread will likely appear there tomorrow. Sourdough takes time. Lots of time. Lots of time and heaps of flour.

I only realised yesterday that the reason
