Some stuff and my upcoming Big Fat Greek Dinner



I am inviting you to view this YouTube video to get you in the mood for my Big Fat Greek dinner tomorrow night. Then again after a few drinks and my dinner we may be dancing more like this:



Ok, so you will have to wait to see how the dinner actually comes out. I am keeping it simple because it has been so hot and humid here.

In the meantime big things are happening around the homestead. I came home and found that my neighbor Kim had left me a 25 pound bag of Teff. I having been making injera for my pretend babies next door for a year now. I usually buy Bob's Red Mill Teff flour but Kim took it to a WHOLE OTHER LEVEL. So I took this as a hint to get going on the injera making (I have been slacking because of the humidity). I got my starter out and fed it.

I would say that it is active. Looked like the blob from Ethiopia...

So, even though it looked like the starter might win, I got the best of it and produced a stack of injera for my pretend babies.

Stay tuned for the Greek Dinner. We may even dance!

  2. LOL. I think your starter needs to go on a diet!! I'll be a pretend baby if you feed my injera. (And having typed that last sentence, I realize it sounds kind of ... odd!)
