rest in peace, sourdough starter. i don't know what happened to you. i thought things were going so well. and then you were dead. there is much i have yet to learn about microorganisms.
in conclusion, mixing equal parts flour and water, leaving it in a glass jar with a permeable covering, and stirring it every morning with a wooden spoon for three days does not necessarily result in sourdough starter. sometimes it results in moldy wheat paste. just like the rest of life.
but djimmy gave me a camera. thanks, pal. soon, there will be pictures again.
1) new comic book called "five second rule," send me your address and $2 or a trade, i will send you or hand you a copy.
2) the co-op once more has good produce. including delicious kumquats, some of which i ate while working there. (you gotta love a store where you can pick up produce, weigh it, and ring yourself up on a cash register and them immediately eat it. also .... you can just take things that are expired, record them as waste, and eat them, rather than throwing them out and hiding them from hungry people who will then have to go looking through trash bins to get them.)
here. food. take.
i'm not making sense.
i asked a few friends to add their cooking stories here. i think they will, maybe.
