I'm typically a smiling sort, so I usually have a relaxed, almost smile on my face that I turn up the wattage on when I pass a fellow jogger/dog walker. Looking ahead, I see someone turned towards me just a house or two ahead, so I crank up the smile and wave a friendly hello...
AT A YARD FLAG. Awesome. I'm offering "How to be super cool" lessons, if you're interested.
ION, here's a picture of my starter after a week, seeing as so many of you are taking the plunge/are planning on it.
#1. My crumpet dumpings (mm, sounds good!), basically the extra I scoop out of #2-3 every morning, instead of dumping it or adding it to a quick bread. This goes right into the fridge and stays there until crumpet time.
#2 I started a second batch from the first batch instead of dumping the extra (or making quick bread). I keep it tightly sealed, to see how that affects the smell. It's actually noticeably more intense than
#3 Ze original. This smells so good and yeasty, but #2 almost has an alcohol whiff to it. Hell yeah. That's just extra fermentation from being sealed up. Choose your poison. :)
Thanks again for the generous response yesterday re: Oh My Heck. I've been all fired up since then, and am diving back into my doc now. <3
