Important note.... If your going to start a project at night make sure your up for the job. I decided that it was time once again to try and make sourdough. The temps are right for it. I get a recipe and it calls for white and whole wheat flour. I have the white (lots of it) and wheat berries that need to be ground up. So I pull everything out, the grinder, the wheat berries, the measuring cup, the 2 quart jar. I measure the berries and start to grind. Why did I buy a manual grinder? Does anyone remember why? LOL! Let me say that it was way more work then I thought... Plus, I am tired from cleaning today.

Once again I am in the world of fermenting. I can't wait to make lots of goodies with this living thing.... YUM!

The stores around here all are having the Memorial day sales. I picked up 12 packs of hot dogs and 20 containers of Kool-aid just add water canisters. The hot dogs went to the freezer for summer time consumption and the kool-aid goes into storage. I don't generally buy it as it is high in sugar... But I figure that the monsters would want something like this, if there was an emergency.

When I was down stairs I realized that I need to get down there and go through jars. Time is up for some of them and they are taking up space. With the season right around the corner I think its time to put some elbow grease to work... anybody got some to lend me... LOL! This canning thing has been a learning experience. I have learned that just because they will eat the store bought, doesn't mean they will eat the home canned. We have had a lot of that. This year I have the steam juicer which will make doing things oh so much easier. No more days cooking down tomatoes.

Gotta Run,

Pooldad's favorite bread is sourdough, but I have never been able to master it.

Can't wait to hear how fabulous yours is.
