Baking, or not

I’ve slacked off in my baking. For some reason I’m finding it really hard to bake during the week. I never used to have trouble with it, but it’s holding no interest for me lately.

I am continuing in the Cookwise project though. I’m starting both a yeast starter and a traditional starter today. The yeast starter will be used to bake something tomorrow or Wednesday. The traditional starter will be used hopefully next weekend (but not until Sunday afternoon). We’ve got a retreat with the youth group at church that will keep me busy from Friday night through Sunday noon. The bread from these starters will finish out the techniques I’m using in the book and I’ll be ready to try some of my own experiments in the weeks ahead.
