A trip down memory lane

                         From years past, some aspen action as it should be experienced.

Man, in this picture I can nearly smell the wet earth and the sage.  I can hear the leaves chattering together in that dry fall air.  Just very evocative.

Beginning the process of Shepherd's bread making tomorrow.

This fall weather has gotten us thinking about bread making.  We took Doug the Wild Sourdough Starter out of hibernation in the fridge and fed him, so he should be bubbling and ready by tomorrow morning.

Doug likes that.

Flour Water Salt Yeast: The Fundamentals of Artisan Bread and Pizza

The yeast doing it's work.

No fancy pants bread making machine here, we just knead by hand and let 'er rise.

Mason Cash Terracotta Bread Baking Set, Includes a Mixing Bowl (11.5-Inch Diameter x 5.5-Inch Height) with Proving Lid/Baking Stone

From a previous bake, a beautiful rise.   I admit, to get this, I add a little store bought yeast to Doug. Then, it's into the camp oven to bake.

The final product, a huge round of bread.  Carb overload.  Very good while still hot and with melted butter and honey.
