So last night I made my first sourdough rye bread. It's an art this sourdough stuff because one has to make the "sour" dough culture first (takes at east 4 days) and then you mix that culture in 3 types of flour, knead it and it has to rise overnight. Mine really didn't rise much because the temperatures have to be just right (weird). (and I forgot the salt so I threw it in after). I put it in the oven this morning and voila! Looks good but I haven't tasted it yet! It's too pretty. I'm going to relish it for a little while with my eyes, then cut it soon.....with a lot of butter on the slice!
The sun is shining in Vancouver this morning! I woke up to the fog horns going off constantly since 6:00am. It's an interesting thing living close to the ocean. If it's not the gulls screeching, it's the fog horn going! I do love it though. After having lived in Ontario for most of my young life, the sounds of gulls always reminded me of the ocean. Now that I live by the ocean, the gulls still have a way of telling me how grateful I am to live here.
Life is good. Always believe that.
