The other day I was talking with my friend Jessica about the
bread starter Christian had made so we could up our pizza dough game.
Then she told me that her grandma Linda has a 50+ year starter
that she's given out to all her children and grandchildren, and I left her
home with some of my own grandma Linda starter.
I immediately went home and made a batch of pizza dough
for our pizza night on Friday, using the heirloom starter.
I also made a sourdough loaf using Christian's starter.
I thought about Jane the whole time.
loaves of bread. When she left on her mission (ONE YEAR AGO)
she asked me to feed her starter, but I didn't,
and it died in the fridge, and I feel terrible about it.
When she gets home in January, we'll have TWO starters
to use, and I bet she'll take to BYU with her, too.
Unfortunately, I had to leave while my bread was in the oven
so I asked Christian to take it out when it was done.
He sent me a text:
It was AMAZING, and we'll see about the pizza
dough on Friday (fingers crossed).
