A Week in Review

Did you guys think I went through blogging burnout? I don't think I've ever gone this long without posting. Unfortunately, I've been sick, and still am. This nasty flu just won't go away. Emi picked it up at the Temecula race, she's not even fully recovered yet, and it's been 2 weeks. Then Abby got it, then David, then me. Lucky for Sage, he's OK. He couldn't get sick, he has a Super Bowl party to go to, so I kept having him eating a lot of tangerines and taking the immune strength booster drops. No baking lately, just no energy, barely putting up this post. Here's a quick recap of what's been going on.

I got myself a new "pet", a sourdough starter from King Arthur Flour Co . I'm venturing out in my breadmaking repertoire. There are many sourdough starters out there, but mostly dried. This one appealed to me because it was "fresh" and also, a descendant of 250 years of starters, originating in New England. As I work with this starter, not only am I sharing a part of history in each bite, but when I feed it, it adapts to my climate and region, becoming a one and only SEE starter.

Feeding my starter some water and flour. Possibly the easiest pet to maintain. Here it is, snuggled in its new home.

Thanks for waiting folks... here is FINALLY our first shirt.
PEDAL ONE LONG... David's current motto.
And then, I made some shirts for the Super Bowl party. Good thing they were all rooting for the Giants, I know they'll be wearing these after the game's over.

And then, my circuit board job came in, so I've been plugging away on these too...
Hopefully I'll be feeling back to normal next week and can try making my first sourdough bread!
