Super Sour

Good morning and happy Saturday!


We are ready for the weekend and decided to start it off right :)


I took my starter out of the fridge last night, added another cup of flour and warm water, and let it sit overnight.

Then this morning, I took one cup of the starter mix to make pancake batter, and poured the leftover starter back in my clean jar for next time.


See how foamy?


Nick cooked bacon and made coffee this morning while I worked on the pancakes.




Cast iron pans make the BEST pancakes. Try it.

These pancakes were so good and sour! Definitely better than the first batch of pancakes – mostly because the starter has had more time to “sour up”.


Nick made some coffee in our big french press today, using the Sumatra coffee we bought at Mill Mountain last night. It’s hard to beat fresh roasted, fresh ground, and french pressed coffee.




Big news in this house: I drank my coffee black today! Not really by choice…we were out of milk, cream, half n half, anything I could add to it. And honestly, this coffee was so good, it didn’t need anything.


I had 2 sourdough pancakes (which are also almost all whole wheat!) with a little maple syrup, 1 slice of bacon, and a clementine.



Next up:


Go get groceries.

Back home for a fun afternoon with Maggie :) We’re finally having good weather today, and we’re going to take advantage of it.
