Muling it Over

My wife and I had been discussing how exactly to schedule our holiday events. We both offered sensible options. Finally she said "Well, those are two good options to mule over"

"Mull",  said I.

"What?", said she.

"Mull, not mule. You mull over your options, not mule over them."

"But I don't feel like changing my mind."

First Garlic

The heat, then prolonged moisture seemed to put some of the smaller French Rose garlic in danger of molding. So we picked it quickly. The larger ones have more green leaves and may benefit from the continued moisture.

Sourdough Bread

Hey, check this an effort to eat delicious bread and save money I have been practicing bread-baking on the weekends. Here's a picture of some nice-looking loaves I made a month ago.

I've recently realized that sourdough bread is easier than I previously thougt. It's definitely cheaper and arguably better tasting than bread made with active dry yeast.

Sourdough Possibly healthier for humans

Egalitarian: the leavening is free
My favorite how-to video for making sourdough starter. It is SOOO easy!

Sullivan Street simple method

The simple Sullivan Street method is very compatible with sourdough because it is a slow rise bread.The only downside to sourdough is that it can take longer. I could debate if that is actually a downside, but I'll spare you.
