3/30/14 Bake

Here is a couple 16 hour Sourdoughs and some Scones I made for my Wife's co-workers, plus some food.

I used leftover water from after boiling some pasta the night before, the crumb was great.

Buttermilk, Currant, Toasted Almond and Lemon Zest Scones

Grilled Spring Lamb Chops with Smashed marintated Potatoes and Strawberry- Arugula Salad

 

Have a great week everyone.

Cheers,

Wingnut

Nothing like a great bread to accompany a great meal.  I feel at home and very hungry reading this post.  Wish I could afford lamb more often too......

Well done and happy baking Wing!

Thanks Dab, we have it once or twice a month. Most nights it's just chicken or pasta dishes. 

Cheers,

As usual Wingnut. 

I know this is a bread forum, but what's in the marinade for those potatoes?

Thanks

Well Bob after they are boiled and lightly smashed I tossed then in a little oilive oil, real sherry vinegar, chopped fresh Lemon Thyme and a little whole grain mustard, let them sit in that for 20 minutes then grill.

Thank for the kind words.

Cheers,

Wingnut

Great bread, scones and that dinner looks fantastic.  I've had the stomach flu the last couple of days so I can't really eat much...but your food does look great.

I am thinking about taking a week off and going to the San Juan soon.

Time spent on the water is never frought with toooo much negative hindsight. Hours in traffic jams, behind a desk, tending to useless lawns, pales to the life cleansing time spent in nature. 

Don't think, just go!
