I have a bad habit of letting some of the, um, less desirable leftovers hang out in the fridge way too long. And then I have an even worse habit of sometimes throwing out the whole container when I find something unidentifiable in the back of the fridge. I'm normally the Queen of Recycling, but somehow I just can't bring myself to open some of those containers and deal with the contents. The very idea of opening them indoors and letting all those mold spores and bacteria...

Thank you!!!! Do you leave it uncovered while you're getting it going? I guess you'd have to so it can catch wild yeasts, so maybe that's a silly question! How do you know when your starter has gotten really active and won't need extra yeast? I'm a total novice at this! I'm sorry about your lost starter! I can't imagine the distress of having an established one that you like and know what to expect from, and then losing it like that.
The only thing I'm left wondering is what on earth took you so long? I hate it when people can't be bothered to get out of their cars and instead honk and annoy everyone around them! I'd have been out there on about day 3 when I realized it was going to be an ongoing issue!
Yep, yellow. But not a pale, butter yellow - I think a deeper or brighter yellow would be good. But not schoolbus yellow! Red would have been my first choice, but with your couch issue, yellow would be nice!
I guess the title says it all! I've really been wanting to get a starter going, but I'm not really sure how to go about it. I've read very contradictory advice online, so I'd kind of like to hear the btdt experience of you wise mamas!
I love thunderstorms (but they scare me too). I'm a procrastinator. I smile on a regular basis. I love enjoying good food. I usually stay up later than I should. I'm on MDC and Facebook too much. (I'm starting to feel like bluebirdiemama's twin here) My SO is my best friend. I want another baby. I'm super happy to see the sun. I love summer! I love sheets that have been dried outside. I wish I could play an instrument.
Let's see. Yesterday ds had: Breakfast: oatmeal (made with milk instead of water) with brown sugar, glass of milk Snack: cheese, whole wheat sourdough toast, small handful pumpkin seeds (maybe 1.5 tablespoons?), water Lunch: Spanish tortilla (basically fried potatoes and scrambled eggs, cooked without stirring - probably about 1 egg's worth plus about 1/4 cup of potatoes), asparagus, strawberries, milk. He might have had another slice of toast with this, but I'm not...

I'm cracking up that he thought frog's leg was a more reasonable interpretation! I mean, if you were in France, maybe frog leg would be more typical? But in Illinois? I just don't see it as the Illinois state dish, ya know? Oh, and to mamalisa. I don't think we flip each other (well, not usually!) but playing charades of any sort is an invitation for us to get really ticked at how the other one just doesn't get it!
