OMGosh I have been busy! I wanted to bake up some sourdough biscuits this morning at the request of my kiddos. Of course I couldn’t just whip them up, I had to make a formula first! Well I was halfway through mixing when my boss called and said, ” Come to work stat!” Jeesh! So I said, “Hey, I have some sourdough biscuits on the way!” So these biscuits might look a bit hurried, but they were really good and I snuck a couple to work….my boss likes it when I do that.
I can really relate to you working folks now. How do you bake bread around a schedule? So I am working more with motherdoughs as they last in the refrigerator longer especially with a pinch of salt. I need to make some sourdough bread before taking off soon for advanced CERT certification and fire rescue training. If I don’t, my family will have to eat…. gulp… breath Teresa…. store bought bread Now that is neglect. Something you really would need to get rescued from…. :)
