|First bagel making attempt using this recipe... they were delicious! It was quite a process (which I didn't photograph completely), but fun. Plus I have such helpers in the kitchen, it makes everything long & sometimes frustrating but I have been ground into patience like spice in a mortar & pestle. The boys shaped most of these, they did well!|

|I listened to this sourdough cooking class talk (it starts on the sourdough discussion at about 23 mins in) while I was kneading the first time ... I am feeling good about my passionate adventures with sourdough & properly preparing grain.|
Our big boy is really "into" doing chores these days...he will shovel, chop wood, collect eggs (from the new & improved coop, thanks Papa!). It isn't easy to keep up with giving him jobs (since he's not really into cleaning inside).
Sunny spring days yet dumping snow every night. I saw pussy willows today!
