Sourdough Starter...oh my!

I am so in love with this book...

From Blogger Pictures

there are so many recipes and so far everyone I've made has tasted great!!

Anyways, there is a section on sourdough breads and I've never tried doing so I needed to make some sourdough starter.

I followed the recipe exactly and now we wait and stir, wait and stir...

you have to stir this 3 times a day.  I've set the alarms on my cell phone to remind far it's working!  In 5 to 10 days and it will be ready!!  I can see it fermenting and it doesn't smell "awesome" per say, but it looks like it's working.

Each time you use some you have to add to it and if you don't use any of it for like 10 days you have to add to it.  I'm wondering if I can remember all this "tending" to this stuff!  Looking forward to using this and making some more awesome breads!!  Stay tuned!
