Now what!

I ordered a Sour Dough Starter kit with a small crock. This will be the second time I have attempted to work with this substance. This time I hope for success. Will let you know in a few days if it works. I am hoping that it will work. Not sure what to do with the extra starter once I go through the procedure. I says I can give it away, but I think I don’t know enough people to do so.
I want this to work. It is one of the few bread activities which I have failed at . This, hopefully will get me another product to actually work with for sale. A wee bit nervous so keep our fingers crossed my friends. I am starting it tonight.

There are times …

There are times when one has to think … Is this all worth it? Not trying to be cynical or even glib, but this is one of those days in the holiday season when I have to wonder why I am doing anything for the season. Now don’t get me wrong, I happen to like decorating, festive music and the like but when ideas fall short and money is super non existent and family doesn’t even try but expect you to carry the brunt of everything I ask you … Is it all worth it?!?!?!

Annual Cheesecake now delivered

As has been the tradition since 2009 I once again presented Jim Thompson (a local South Dakota radio personality). It is a treat that I decided to give Jim because of how welcome he made me feel in 2008 when I put out a booth for Teas N More. I was giving samples of some of my baked goods, including home baked Strawberry Cheesecake. He tried a sample and said he would love to have this. I told him that I would bring one to him all for himself the following year. He didn’t take me seriously. He does now! He has received one a year ever since.
Jim is a wonderful man with down to earth values. I didn’t get photos of him, but I did of the cake. I also found that he will not his hourly show at the end of May, though he is doing a small 5 min. segment twice a day for a bit now. He will be missed. Oh, and I did tell him I will continue the once a year cheesecake for as long as I can even if he doesn’t have his radio show.
