    Breakfast 2020!

    Moe's breakfast from yesterday.
  4. @curls, that boule is a real beauty. Love that golden rich colour of the crust. Started two batches of dough Monday morning. One was a 600g at 80% destined for pizza Monday night and the other a 1000g flour batch at 72%. Both were made just from discard. The pizza batch had the discard from the white starter with 2g of yeast and the 1000g batch had the discard from the rye starter discard, along with 2g of yeast. Made three pizzas on Monday night, plus one small baguette, and left the other batch out of the counter for 17 hours and baked yesterday morn

    Fed my starters this morning and made a dough for pizza (600g flour) with the discard from the white starter, plus 2 g of yeast. I had Italian Sausage and Mushroom and I made Moe a Prosciutto and Pineapple pizza. I call this an act of love because just the thought of pineapple on a pizza makes me cringe.

    Dinner 2020

    I cheated last night. Stopped on the way home from work and picked up a rotisserie chicken. Made sure I picked one with lots of drippings in the bottom of the container. To make the gravy I poured the drippings into a shallow pan, along with a little butter and let the drippings cook down and brown in the butter. Added flour to make a roux, cooked for a few minutes and then added chicken broth and seasoned with sage, salt and pepper. Covered and let it simmer on very low heat for the flavours to meld while I double fried the french fries. Quick and easy

    Moe's breakfast. Potato pancakes, sausage and scrambled egg. That should keep him going until I'm home from work.

    Dinner 2020

    Last night's dinner. Roast Pork tenderloin with a black pepper gravy. Served with spinach, squash and mashed potatoes.
  12. @rotuts, not really. Usually I would make the preferment and add that as the "yeast" and it would take much less time to triple than 17 hours if it had been left on the counter. And the sourdough flavour would be stronger. And as I have mentioned before, I really am not a big fan of sourdough. I just like being able to make bread from a starter that I "grew" myself. And Moe and Matt both like sourdough. This way, we are all happy. The flavour of the bread is "sourdoughish" rather than full out. And that I like.
  13. I tried something a little different with yesterday's dough. I fed my starter again yesterday morning and rather than make a preferment (Biga), I just tossed the discard into 1000gs of flour, along with just 1 gram of yeast. The hydration was 72%. Normally, after the stretch and folds, if I wasn't baking the same day, I would put the dough in the fridge for a cold fermentation. But I decided to leave the dough out and bake this morning. So it had a slow fermentation at room temperature, sitting on the counter for 17 hours. I checked on it before I went to bed to make sure it

    Happy Anniversary @liamsaunt. Lovely meal. You obviously have access to better take out than we have around here. Last night's dinner. Pepperoni, mushroom and olive pizza. And Sunday night's dinner. Grilled Italian sausage with a side of pasta.

    Dinner 2020

    It was Moe's birthday yesterday. I went into the butcher before work and picked up a rack of lamb. I had time to season it before leaving for work. Grilled and served with roasted potatoes, steamed radishes, zucchini and cherry tomatoes. And a homemade mint sauce. And for dessert, I piped sweetened cream cheese into the strawberries and dipped them in chocolate. It is a family tradition to always have something with strawberries on Moe's birthday.

    This was suppose to be last night's dinner, but didn't happen. Spatchcocked chicken marinated yesterday morning with lots of garlic, lemon zest, juice of a large lemon, salt, pepper, oregano and some hot pepper flakes and olive oil. Cooked on the grill this morning. I made sandwiches on buns, which I forgot to take a photo of.

    I made @ptw1953's Scottish Crumpets for Moe for breakfast this morning. He really enjoyed them. First time making any kind of crumpet.
  22. @ptw1953, thanks for sharing. Plan to make them this week on a day off. ETA: @ptw1953, I realized that I had lots of time this morning so I made them for Moe for breakfast. I loved them.
  23. @ptw1953, I would love to try these. Would you please share the recipe.

    Dinner 2020

    Sausage and Mushroom pizza for Moe and I and Matt made himself a three cheese pizza.Same day dough. It was made early in the morning and then it spent 5 or 6 hours in the fridge. Dough came out of the fridge around 3:00 and sat on the counter for three hours so it could warm up and finish rising.
