my beautiful pan, seasoned and ready to go!
last night i seasoned my pan, mixed some of my starter with flour & water (so that i would have enough starter for pancakes in the morning), and stirred up the first part of the english muffin dough so that it would have plenty of time to sour. :)
starter for the pancakes. looks gross but smelled like yeast.
about mid morning i finished mixing up the english muffins by kneaded & cooked them. next time i will use more flour. i had a wet dough, so after i browned them in my skillet i still needed to bake them for a little bit. that being said, i will be making these over and over and over again because they are AMAZING!!
all through my cooking and cleaning up, Isaac was pretty good. his imagination is huge lately and he can play by himself for big chunks of time, which makes life a little easier on mommy. this morning he had his trucks all lined up facing him while he sang "inright, outright, upright, downright, happy all the time" faster and faster until he was just jumping & singing gibberish.
Christian was not so agreeable this morning. probably has to do with the 3 teeth that he just cut in the last day or so. poor guy. :(
all in all, i'm having a lot of fun with trying different cooking things. i feel like it's a way for me to use my creative juices, but i'm still filling a need and taking care of my family. i mean, i love to sew, but we do have enough clothes to wear. and i love to draw and paint, but that means i have to be willing to share what i'm working on with the little men that are at my heals. but my family has to eat!
what's next, maybe making my own cheese? hmmm.... ;)
