My new everyday bread

IMG-3719WEB_IMG-3709

This is a loaf of whole wheat sourdough twice the size of my previous regular loaves, about two pounds of bread. The loaf pan is a specialty pan for angel food cake. It was a gift. The pan is big enough that the loaf could have been higher, so next time I’ll try making a 2.5 lb loaf.

Another bread and pizza day ……….

My sourdough loaf bread and pizza made with freshly ground whole wheat flour are always in demand.

Santa Fe resident, vegan, and bicycling advocate Jackie Shane baked these sourdough whole wheat/rice bread loaves and took their picture. She says, “Got the idea from Sandor Katz author of Wild Fermentation, and the awesome starter from Lisa Rayner, who authored Wild Bread.”

A rainy baking day in Santa Fe

What I’ve been doing today: I baked whole wheat loaf bread, flatbread and peppermint chocolate chip okara cookies with flour I ground by hand this morning.

A sunny, warm spring day at 7,000 feet

Well, a few days from the start of spring. I solar cooked some long grain brown rice with turmeric to eat with stir-fry leftovers. Afternoon temperatures have been in the mid-60s, so I’m putting the fig tree on the balcony for a few hours every day. I also baked another loaf of whole wheat bread and soaked soy beans for making soy milk in the evening.
