Ready for some "dough therapy"
« on: July 26, 2013, 09:54:32 AM »
The week has flown by (I'm not complaining), and I find myself somewhat irritable and impacient this Friday afternoon. Haven't touched flour (much less dough) for over a week. Before heading out this evening for dinner with the wife, I will definitely have to get in my "dough time". You know how it goes, preparing for those Saturday pies. My oh my, do I have it bad :-D 

I'm sure some of you, if not most, understand exactly what I'm talking about.

Just tossed and turned all night long.

I hear ya!  It was hot here, and a certain someone had the audacity to ask me not to bake bread.  That only lasted a few days.  Then I got cranky from withdrawal and said screw it, I'm baking bread.  I dream about making dough, stretching it, shaping it.  I've even talked in my sleep about feeding the starter--much to a certain someone's dismay.   :o

Much better now ;D Cranked out 2 wet pizzarium style doughs and 3 NY doughballs last night.  Nice to have some doughballs to monitor in the fridge, lol.

dhorst- And what does exactly one say in their sleep in regards to feeding a sourdough culture? :-D

I believe it was something along the lines of "the starter is growling and needs to be fed."  :-D
