Simon the sourdough starter has a life of his own now, I’m fascinated to watch the bubbles burst as I look into the jar. He will be fed again and then move into the fridge tonight in preparation for some bread baking later this week. The next stage is making a sponge which I gather is an extra large version of the starter.
The idea now is to keep Simon alive and use him as when I need him until Peter pushers him out or he peters out (ha ha couldn’t resist that). I have to get through the sponge stage first to know if he really is going to make a proper loaf of bread. If it all works I’ll do a complete post on the subject.
We have a friend coming over for dinner this evening (and she is bringing cake with her) so T-W-O will be making a prawn risotto. We have been freezing reduced price prawns from the supermarket for a few weeks now and it’s time to make a bit of space in there.
I have been reading up on what I should be planting in March and I’ve petrified myself:
I hope we get some good weather this weekend. I’m off now to order up some Asparagus and check what seeds I’ve got left
