Dough! Doe! Doh!



I bought new yeast today.  I am happy to report that my starter bubbled and frothed and when I added the flour, magic happened just like the magic is supposed to happen. 


Let there be bread~

Tim got a doe this morning. Venison for the freezer. 

We had fajitas for supper, and William was just too full to eat an entire fajita. "It's too much!" he complained. Repeatedly. In an aside to his grandfather, I said, "Bet me that he'll be asking for a piece of cake within five minutes." William walked into the room from scraping the remains of his fajita in the garbage and immediately said, "Can I have a piece of cake?" 


(Did I do good, AC?)

  2. I'm with William. I can be absolutely full of one kind of food but have room for another kind.

    1. William is an easy reader book. He is quite predictable.

  4. Does he shoot wild hogs? There are so many here and the young ones are very tasty.

    1. Wild hogs are not an issue here, but he's seen hunts down south that he has been interested to try. He's never had the time or the money to do it.

  5. Maui could use Tim. They are having a huge problem with Axis deer.
    He didn't want to finish his fajitas? Oh my! But yes, cake will usually do that.

    1. I had never heard of an axis deer before, so that sent me right off on a google search. Unculled, deer can become a major problem. Fewer people are hunting, and the increasing deer population is becoming a problem here, as well.

  6. William sounds like my other half. Can't finish his wholesome, nourishing dinner but after 10 minutes sits down with a plate of cheese and biscuits.
    Must be a male thing.

    1. He's a growing boy, and he eats a lot, actually. Grazes constantly. I'm not sture what Lord P will use as an excuse, but it made me laugh when you talked about cheese and biscuits. That is one of William's go tos as well.

    1. Your post was very interesting to me. Like you, I take disagreement to the idea that we should never encourage others to change.

  8. The internet wants to know if he got his cake, and the internet hopes that he did.

    1. The internet can be assured that he did get his cake. One piece for dessert, and another piece for a bed time snack after his crackers and cheese.

    1. Before bedtime, William did get 2 pieces of cake, crackers and a good size helping of sliced cheddar cheese. For breakfast, so far, he's had one bowl of raisin bran, another bowl of apple sauce, a slice of toast with cinnamon butter. As he was headed out the door with his grandfather, he grabbed a bag of chips for a snack.

  11. Yay for the bread and yay for the deer! In response to what Ellie said, lots of folks here like to add wild hog to their deer sausage. As for the deer population, many places in the country are having problems with Chronic Wasting Disease now.

    1. It has yet to hit here, but it seems to creep closer ever year. Reminds me of Police's 'Synchronicity'.

  12. I should bake bread more often. I love to eat it fresh out of the oven, especially my personal favorite, English Muffin bread. I just never seem to think about making it early enough in the day to let it rise properly.

    1. To me, it just makes a meal feel special, even if that meal is just left overs or a salad or a bowl of soup.

  13. He was saving room for dessert! Very sensible. :)

  14. I worked in school food service and made over 1000 rolls every morning. They were so big and soft, nothing like the frozen ones most schools use nor.

  15. I remember when I was a kid, the food was made from scratch. I honestly believe it is probably cheaper (and healthier) to return to that.

  16. Good sound effects - after your post yesterday I bit the bullet and bought some fresher yeast myself. Look at you, an influencer!!!

    1. You know, I was thinking about you and Amanda today. You're one of the people who has been along since the beginning. Just got word that Scotty Blake died. He was a 'fiery' from Adelaide, and one of those folks (like yourself) who have been along for the ride from the very beginning. He had cancer from exposure to chemicals in the line of duty.

I'm glad you're here!
