Like me or don’t. At the
constant prodding urging of an acquaintance, I opened up one of those facebook things. Crikey another thing to keep track of. It’s bad enough that I have to keep track of my parents’ email because they forget how to log in, now this. Anyway, here’s a link to the facebook presence, although I will likely use the Twitter more. I like the Twitter because it’s just less hassle, and unlike Google and FB, don’t ask me for my shoe size and license plate number. Boy, talk about intrusion.
I hope you all had a great Thanksgiving holiday. The day was actually kind of relaxing for me. I got the bulk of the work done on Wednesday so early in the day yesterday I was able to do some web trolling and found some interesting things. One of the sites I ran across was Kitchen Lane by Nancy Baggett. If you like to write about food you should cruise around here because she has some great insights and tips. I also baked up a few new things and I’ll be sharing those with you soon.
Today was just of those days with things gone wrong on a project I’m working on. I did manage to do my duty and make a Black Friday purchase of a few new baking books and a Christmas gift for my brother. No, I didn’t take part in any of the shopping mall madness – I did mine online. It really got ugly out there in a few places, and I really want no part of that.
I’ve also been playing around a little more with Starters aka Preferments for bread. It’s been fun so far. My main recollection about Starters etc is from when I was a teenager – my grandmother used to give me some stuff in a jar and she used to say “Here, now put this much of it in your bread.” Back around that time I had no clue as to what was going on, I just did it LOL. Now there’s better understanding of it though, and I hope to do some stuff for people who are confused about Starters or just plain afraid of poisoning the family. No one here has keeled over here yet, so I guess I’m doing ok.
Hope you have a good weekend, and I’ll have a new link list for y’all on Sunday.
Update 4/2/2012: Sorry tired of porn spam coming from facebook so I pulled down all of my baking info there. I just have no tolerance for stupidity. The share buttons go next.
