    same white bread. It is only the third time I have made bread, so now I have some practice, I can try some new things. :) I’d like to make sourdough sometime though, that’s my favorite!
    Desi really eats up this bread though, he loves it!

    Cookies sound tasty!

    We should get a good sourdough starter going, then we can all use it.

    I also wouldn’t mind getting a kombucha going. I swear on a stack of Bibles I’m not a hippie.

    I’ll bet that apple house smells so good! When I was wee little we had an orchard near us and would go there and it smelled so good. I was sad when it closed.
    Today I made…bread, meatloaf, sweet potato fries, blackberry pie. YUM. :)

    See, this is what I don’t understand. You ended up with the ingredients to make all that and I brought home cereal, avocados, and cheese. Shopping…I’m doin’ it wrong :)

    That’s a good idea. I’ve shied away from doing that and put it off because it didn’t seem like it was worth the work for a few loafs I would make. But if several of us go in on it, it would be more worthwhile.

    Do you know what is required to do that?

    I’ll check around and see what I can come up with.

    So I was eating my Cap’n Crunch this morning and it occurred to me “this would make really good fried chicken”. Just to make sure I wasn’t totally nuts, I googled it…sure enough, tons of recipes out there. So tonight, it will be Cap’n Crunch Chicken :D

    Oh man. I so totally have a craving for Crunch Berries cereal now. Haven’t had that since I was a kid. All I have in the pantry is Kashi…

    ETA:

    Just googled them, and the berries are all sorts of weird colors now. Used to be just pink. Craving gone….

    That reignites my constant craving for Smurfberry cereal.

    I really want to cook tonight – but I’m volunteering instead.

    I have a great bread dough recipe that has a bit of the fermentation of sourdough without the hassle of a starter. From Aritisan Bread in 5 Minutes a Day:

    Mix three cups of water at 100 degrees with 1.5 tablespoons of kosher salt and 1.5 packets of active dry yeast. Let it bloom for 10 minutes, then stir in 6.5 cups of flour until it’s incorporated. Let it rise once, then punch it down and refrigerate it for a few days. No need to knead .

    Use as much or as little as you like to bake a loaf of bread or just a roll (400 degrees for 20-30 minutes depending on the size.) It keeps for up to a month, and really the longer it goes, the better it tastes. When I run out, I make a new batch without cleaning the container – there’s some good tasting microbes in there!

    Cap’n Crunch Chicken=AMAZING.

    I plan on adjusting this recipe to Peanut Butter Cap’n Crunch for my next attempt.

    I got 4 and a half pounds of pork butt smoking at 225.

    If anyone else has a hunka meat they want to smoke I have some extra space.

    Milk Punch

    1/2 cup dark rum
    1/4 cup brandy
    1/2 cup sugar (superfine works well)
    1 Tbsp vanilla (or to taste)
    4 cups whole milk

    Combine the first four ingredients in a plastic or heavy glass pitcher. Stir until sugar dissolves. Add the milk and put in your freezer for several hours. The alcohol keeps the milk from freezing completely, making a tasty and potent slushie. This recipe is easily doubled.

    It’s all the fun of eggnog without the risk of salmonella.
