Let's get the party started (with apologies to Pink)

Here's the deal, kids. I set up my first-ever sourdough starter today. Starting in about five days, it will need to be fed approximately weekly, which entails removing a cup of it and replacing it with fresh flour and water. This means that I'll either have to make sourdough weekly (tragedy!), throw out a cup of starter weekly (tragedy, sans sarcasm), or give a friend a cup of starter every once in awhile. That's where you come in. Those of you in the Boston area, if you're interested in starter, hit me up throughout the summer; I predict that I'll be feeding this thing on Mondays.

Oh, yeah, food. It wasn't too interesting today: chopped salad involving balsamic vinegar and mint and strawberries, the rest of the pita toasted with cheese, some sunflower seeds. Sometimes just throwing leftover vegetables and bread and cheese together is the way to go, especially given that I've been having a rough week and mostly wanted to relax and just shove vegetables in my face when dinnertime rolled around.


  1. Wow Hannah... you have reached the foodie level I will heretofore refer to as "intense." The first time I read about sourdough starters, I decided never to have one - mostly because I don't like sourdough, but also because I don't need a pet. Anyway: good luck!

  2. There's no way I can afford to feed a cat or something, but a starter... now that I can feed!
