Just out of curiosity, anyone attending Costume Con in St Louis this year? I have a slight chance of attending and wanted to see if anyone was going and needed/wanted to share ride/room. The availability of a place to sleep and a ride up with other folk will directly impact my decision. |
I wanted a sweet and a savory loaf of bread for the weekend/early week, so a loaf of cinnamon raisin challah is bench proofing at the moment (I did two braids and lay them side by side in the loaf pan,this should be interesting). The other is a second attempt at the bread that I did the other day (and the leftovers were French toast this morning). It's a no knead bread, meaning higher water content (I think the baking term is "hydration") and I stir it all together. It's proofing overnight in the fridge, I'll do up a loaf tomorrow morning and see how it tastes. The change from my previous loaf is 2 oz less flour and a little bit more salt.
It's snowing, so naturally I took Kiyan out to the grocery store for more fruits and other essential foods. It's coming down but nearing it's finale, leaving plenty for Pari to make a snowman tomorrow and possibly some sledding. Roads weren't too bad, and all but one person was driving safely. Idiot pulled out in front of me, luckily I was taking the corner real slow or I'd be posting about the idiot that caused an accident. This is not the sort of weather where you want to stand around looking at dented cars.
