Updates: Cheese, and Shepherd’s Bread

Day 3: still using loaf #2 of the Shepherd’s Bread for breakfast toast and it is still good. Lovely moist chewy inside, golden toasted outside, no sign of off-ness or reduced flavours.

Cheese-making is cancelled due to lack of milk supplies at the shop this morning – they had only the Pure, micro-filtered stuff. Clearly cheese-making is going to require regimental planning.

Soooo… if I am not making Halloumi, my bread plan for the weekend is scuppered and I need to replace the Pitta Plan with Something Else. I am short of time today, even though Mr L is in charge of the main meal (Prawn Pathia), as I have the Open Studio thing going on (Mince Pies are about ready to go in the oven.) That means probably nothing requiring a head start. I do have to bake, I cannot waste that lovely fresh yeast in my ‘fridge.

What to do?

Plus, I was finding it hard going. Not feeling on top of my game right now. Possibly a touch of “Keto Flu”? I’d like to think so, but honestly haven’t been working hard enough at it to have gotContinue readingFeeling a bit seedy

An interesting morning. Up and at ’em we went to Intermarché to fuel up and to buy some food for when we arrive home. They were queuing outside the door for what appeared to be controlled entry. There were queues for fuel too. “We’re not that desperate” we said and set off for home. It… Continue reading October 29, 2020 at 10:24AM

      Yes, that is what my gut is leading me to but I know how many bought muffins are cluttering up the freezer. I should use them up before making my own. Do you want any? Lidl’s best (actually superior to Tesco’s) 🙂
