Menu Plan: Happy St. Patrick’s Day!

The sourdough successes continue! I whipped up some sourdough bread this past week that contained nothing but flour, cold water, and a pinch of salt. That’s IT. And it rose to be lovely, light, and tangy-delicious. I loved it for a grilled cheese and tomato sandwich– yum!

My starter is alive and well, so I expect to continue experimenting with it over the weeks to come…


In the meantime, Happy St. Patrick’s Day to you! Here’s what we’re eating around here:

Brunch–Pumpkin Spice Donuts, Co-Jack Cheese, Granny Smith Apples (this meal was a fun little play on the Irish flag)
