In My Kitchen - October 2018
overnight sourdough bread. Usually I slash a few short slashs across the loaf. It is a sign of my increasing confident in slashing that I finally tried a long slash the length of the loaf. I still need to work on increasing the tension of the loaves, which makes slashing much more impressive.
overnight sourdough bread. If we have enough bread about, I make bread rolls. I have quite a lot of photos of the rolls and intend to write about making them. However I find that in blogging when you have a lot of photos, there is this belief that the perfect photo will come along which is a real block to ever posting. One day ... I hope!
what to do. I put some red wine vinegar and a squirt of dishwashing detergent in a jar and sticky taped a paper cone to the mouth to lure in the flies. It looked like one of those chia puddings with all the drowned flies. My worm farm is doing better but I am still a bit wary about feeding the worms all my fruit and veg scraps (except of course for onion, garlic and citrus).
vegan sausage rolls and Sylvia made rainbow fruit kebabs. She also arranged the platters. The savoury platter was garlic bread crisps, pringles, corn chips and chocolate with corn chips. The sweet platter was caramel filled MandMs, mini mars bars, milk chocolate and chocolate with corn chips. I didn't need to bake dinner that night!
Gourmet Morsels. It was hard to choose just one but I know I don't eat them quickly enough. I also bought the Texas BBQ seasoning because I do use this sort of seasoning and just ran out of my current mix.
Pop'd Fresh popcorn and bought three bags full. One was the Simply Salt and the other two were the Cheesy Onion. (The Chilli Spice was too spicy and the Sweet and Salty was sold out). I was surprised to hear that the Cheesy Onion was vegan after I had tasted it.
vegan apple cider doughnuts yesterday. They were nice but not quite as light as I expected. I don't think we got the ingredient measurements quite right but Sylvia took a very nice photo of her doughnut she glazed (above). We only baked 6 even though we might have made a couple more if we had another doughnut pan and we just glazed them rather than also sprinkle with sugar and spice. Maybe I will get to try them again to see if I have more luck the second time.
I am sending this post to Sherry of Sherry's Pickings for the In My Kitchen event, that was started by Celia of Fig Jam and Lime Cordial, If you would like to join in, send your post to Sherry by 13th of the month. Or just head over to her blog to peek into more kitchens.
