Accountability and bread

Wednesday, May 09, 2012

Two unrelated topics, actually!

I've been trying hard to start a "no refined sugar" streak, and failing because I keep telling myself, "Eh, I'll start tomorrow" (especially when someone offers me a free cookie sample!) Then I read someone else's blog about using the ticker for accountability. I wish I remembered whose it was, but it was just one of those, "Click, read, realize later that that was really inspiring" situations. Anyway, I went in and reset my ticker from weight (which I didn't keep updated anyway) to "days since," and it's already helping! I've finally made it to day 2.

I baked some of the sourdough bread that I made by making regular bread dough and leaving it out for a few days. It was pretty good, but not like San Francisco sourdough good. The local wild yeasties around here apparently just aren't that flavorful-- when I've tried to make my own starter in the past, it's always been kind of blah. Still, it's good to know that it works. Now I have the remaining dough in the fridge to bake one serving at a time in my 1/2 pint dutch oven.

Still no luck on the small covered pot search. I want a 2-qt cast iron dutch oven, but I want it for under $20, and no one has leapt forward to accommodate me on that.
There's one more place I plan to check in the next few days, and if they don't have one, I'll settle for a ceramic casserole I saw for about $15.

    Hmmm.... I'm trying to remember... but I think Wal-mart (of all places) sells cast iron cookware. Have you tried there?

    I need that "no refined sugar" streak.
