Baltimore is snowed in today; she doesn’t want me to leave. Or for anyone to leave. It provides a great chance to catch up on packing, paperwork, and cooking for the week.
Left-over-grain bread is well on its way. That’s bread made with left over cooked whole grains, in this case cooked barely, which is added to the sourdough in the first stage. It takes an extra day to rise, as does anything with whole grain, but it’s well worth the wait!
It’s just two weeks until I leave Baltimore and all this snow far far behind! There is a whirlwind of clutter, documents, boxes and suitcases all around, but soon there shall be some order in this madness. A good drink in hand, a daily dose of freshly made kefir, and visions of mangos and fresh homegrown veggies keep me going…
Cheers, and a big thank you to those of you who have followed Nidulari! I promise it shall get far more interesting once I (finally) arrive on St Croix!
What, you’re still here? Good heavens! I though you’d already decanted yourself into the Caribbean. If you get a free moment, I’d love to buy you a beer and discuss cheese-making and your St. Croix plans before you go!
Yes, I’m here until the 28th (sadly; I’d have been quite happy to miss out on this weather), would love to take you up on that! I’ll shoot you an email.
