So, Silver Sage was put into action last week to create my Sourdough Rosemary Raisin bread.
As the first test, I only made a fourth of the recipe and was pleased to discover that I should be able to make half a recipe without compromising the mixer.
I may need to find a larger bowl, though, for the rising process.
I ended up with 2 loaves. But, to prevent myself from eating both, I immediately took one warm loaf over to my neighbor's, leaving only one to tempt me.
For the first time in over a year I'm looking forward to some 'free' time. On Monday and Tuesday I will be going on my first Girl Road Trip without children! Hooray! Three friends and I are driving to Reedley in central California for an overnight trip. I have convinced them that it will be mandatory to stop at the Superior Dairy in Hanford for some divine homemade ice cream (my favorite flavor there is lemon custard). One serving is huge enough to feed 3 people. It will be fun to see what kind of adventure we will have.
Upon my return, it will be back to class on Wednesday and Thursday, after which I can finally tackle various projects that have been taunting me for months. Updates will be provided. (And, I might have to make my Herb Sourdough Rolls so I can use some parsley.) ; )
