We ended up lighting our outdoor fire last night and Gus baked those thigh fillets in the Weber...
~
I made a baked rice - add whatever veggies you like - I had carrot, zucchini, capsicum, onion, mushroom and fresh corn -  1 cup of rice and 2 cups of water, big teaspoon each of curry powder and chicken stock powder, salt and pepps - mix it all up.   Put a few dobs of butter on top, cover with foil and bake about 1 hour in 180C oven. Better than Continental!

Dinner!
~
The sourdough rose really well...
~
I picked it up to move it over on the bench...
~
...and this huge air bubble erupted. It's alive!
~
Plop onto the mat...
~
No further kneading is required, just gentle shaping then I plopped then into the floured bannetons to rise again...
~
i sat then in the (turned off) warm oven...
~
Tipped out and still rising...I forgot to take a pic of when I "slashed with panache"!
~
Peppermint tea...
~
This loaf is nearly burnt on one end but it is still fine.  I do prefer baking in the lidded tins as I think it gives a nicer crust...
~
The round loaf...
~
I cut the oblong loaf and am very pleased with it.  The taste is delicious, I'm not sure if that is the pure milled flour from Tassie or just the starter doing it's job. Either way, yummy!
~
Oh, I'm having a lazy day, couch sitting and drinking tea...

  2. Glad your sourdough starter is still going so well, Joolz. I forgot to feed my Gertrude before I went away for ten days so was hoping she wouldn't sulk but she did her job when I got back and fed her. It was nice to make a couple of loaves after not baking for a couple of weeks.
