[R]emember, even when September is over, it doesn’t mean that we have to put our wild starters away. I don’t know about you, but we’re going to make every month a sourdough month!
– me, blog from OUR kitchen | Wordless Not-Wednesday: 2nd try at layering (Sourdough September 2020)
I must confess that as these weeks and weeks of pretty much staying at home stretched into months and months, I have been losing track of exactly what month it is. I’ve vaguely kept track by the weather and how late (or early) the sun sets.
Sometime last week, it started getting cool at night, signalling to me that it might be fall. (Did I notice the announcement that the official first day of fall had already happened? Of course not!)
Then a couple of nights we actually had to get the big blankets out. We also made a loaf of bread for the first time in weeks, instead of pitas on the barbecue. (Did I take a photo? Once again: of course not. But trust me, it looks pretty much like all the other Tartine loaves. And it tasted wonderful!)
Today, we WERE going to make Tartine bread again. But we suddenly realized that because it’s sunny and relatively warm, it may be one of our last chances to bake pizza on the barbecue.
And because I had already made the dough, rather than turn on the oven to make a small loaf of bread, we decided to use half the dough to make pita on the barbecue again.
