Well, that was quick. Christmas flew by, and now New Year’s eve and day will go just as quick.

Sorry I didn’t take pictures of the Fish Dinner, but things were hectic enough without me stopping every few minutes to snap pictures.

On the sourdough front, my first loaf was a failure,. mainly because it took like 8 hours to rise, and even then, i don’t think it was enough. I tried again last night, but I cheated and added packaged yeast along with the starter to ensure a quick rise. The result was a tasty fully risen loaf–but it wasn’t sourdough. Maybe I’ll work up the guts to try again without the yeast-helper. I still have my starter in the fridge, so it’s all good.

On the writing side of life, I have been working on a new piece. I can’t say much yet, but it is a definite departure from my previous work. Wish me luck.
