We're celebrating Mother's Day tonight, which means I can finally show off my gift!
Longaberger, who are kind of a big deal in the basket making world, and the craftsmanship on it is really beautiful. Mom has collected these baskets for a while so I thought a new one would be nice!
And wait, what else is in that basket?
I was very jealous and sad that I wasn't going to get to keep this loaf. It baked up so pretty in the oven, it smells incredible, plus I just had so much fun making it! This was more fun with sourdough, and as I have a strong need (not a want - a NEED) to make another one for myself, the recipe will be coming soon. The ingredients were nothing out of the ordinary - just flour, water, sourdough starter, and salt (yes really - only 4 ingredients!), but it was so cool letting it rise for hours and having it double in size, punching it down, and watching it do it again. So very soon we'll go on a sourdough adventure once I get a loaf of this for myself.
In the meantime, off to deliver this to Mom!
