Road Trip and a Little Lacrosse. . .

Road Trip. . .

The hubbs and I make at least two trips a year to see the boys play college lacrosse. Sprat graduated this year in May so this year we travel to see Big T. Big T is the face off guy for his team and has been really working on his technique. He kept telling us all week, Mom I have a new technique I am going to try in my next game. Big T was so excited to execute his technique.

Love Watching these kids play. . .

Love watching these guys play lacrosse, they have really come together as a team. So excited to be able to go visit with Big T and watch him play. We visited some new places to eat and went back to some old favorites. The lobster roll at Legal Seafood is a must anytime in Massachusetts. This time we tried Dave’s Hot Chicken a favorite of Big T. I do not eat a lot of meat when eating out but, you will love this, they had a cauliflower alternative to their chicken tenders and it was delish!! We will go back next time we visit for sure.

Stay tuned for more recipes and Lacrosse updates as the season continues. . .

A Little Sourdough and a Trip to Vermont. . .

A little sourdough. . .

A little sour tell about my sourdough. Decided to dive into a sourdough starter again. My sister is the sourdough, well anything baking, Queen. She inspires me with all that she accomplishes on the daily.

My sourdough starter consists of 3 T pumpernickel flour and 3 T of water (luke warm water). Mix and let set on your counter gently covered with plastic wrap. Day 3: 2 T pumpernickel flour and 2 T luke warm water and stir gently. Day 4: 2 T flour and 2 T luke warm water. Day 5: 5 T pumpernickel flour and 5 T luke warm water. Day 6 discard half of your starter and then feed the remaining starter 1/2 cup flour and 1/2 cup luke warm water.

Day one of my starter

I think this is day 3 of my starter and a picture of my pumpernickel flour I use.

you can see the bubbles

Making bread. . .

Made two different breads with my starter, I made two sourdough loaves and two white loaf/ sandwich bread loaves. They all turned out pretty nice the sourdough had a perfect crusty crust and soft inside. The loaf / sandwich bread was very nice, will have to wait to find out how it tastes Sprat and Sweet G took those loaves with them.

This is my rustic sourdough loaf. lol

Went to Vermont. . .

Went to Vermont this past week and visited the King Arthur Baking company. I love that place and love their products. Picked up a few things I was out of and enjoyed lunch too. It was a beautiful ride up the mountain.

Did get to see some snow on the way. . .
