A 5-post collection

Monday, Day 0, Onwards!

Plague News: 1 new case, an import. Thirty-nine total cases, thirty seven in hospital, two in the ICU.

The numbers are going down. All the community efforts to step on transmission are working.

And further, my Beloved has made bread.

[Shown here: Some classic-looking bread with square corners and a domed top. Two loafs, each scored diagonally. One topped with white sesame seeds and the other topped with black sesame seeds]

This brand of bread includes sugary stuff so I cannot partake unless it's feast day. Alas alack. BUT now my love has the joy of keeping a pet Starter and I'm just waiting for them to name it.

In the news:

  • Comedian who keeps predicting the plague numbers emerges to share his math
  • The removalists blamed for the outbreak share their story
  • More lockdown for Victoria
  • Britney quits music
  • China threatens to nuke the world
  • New book says Muppet was too self-centered to ever hold on to power. In other news, the water is wet
  • More mystery cases in NSW - cherchez la Knomiras
  • Athletes test positive in Tokyo

And here I am, back on my bullshit.

I did successfully show Mayhem how to make bread and it turned out like this:

I made some yummy ass bread

There is a reason for the lack of a hyphen there. Mostly because both of my loaves yesterday had a definite butt-crack to them. At least in one end of the loaf. Alas, there are no photographs because someone1 wanted to eat both loaf butts.

Given that one loaf is down to a hub and predation has already begun on the other, I am now warming up my other sourdough starter so I can make a couple more loafs so we

Bread Day the Second!

I got enough wholemeal flour to make a loaf and keep the starter alive, so I'm making some proper sourdough that hopefully won't go flat as a tack this time.

I also made some pancakes and I think I've perfected the recipe enough that I can put the final version up on my foodie blog.

The bread will likely appear there tomorrow. Sourdough takes time. Lots of time. Lots of time and heaps of flour.

I only realised yesterday that the reason
