So I have been playing with it for a couple of weeks..I did make one loaf..not sure the starter was ripe enough..will definitely have more goes at it..it was good and pretty but dense..the verdict is perhaps it was not well started enough..
when you feed the starter..you discard some..that kills me;)
So on the KAF website..there was a recipe for the starter you are going to discard..I had half a cup ..so I tried their sourdough buns..
the recipe makes 2 pans of bread buns..I thought hmm.. too much ..rolls..as bread..people said making cinnamon rolls out of the dough..was winner..
So I rolled up the dough..but on the left hand side..I brushed the butter and parika mix..on the right side..I spread butter..and cinnamon sugar..
there you go..a sweet and a savory all at once..
both are good..
Jacques said..add plumped raisins next time:)
I baked mine Convection..fan as Mary and Paul would say..thus the more golden color..
They are good..but both best right out of the oven..not the best rolls..in both cases.. but definitely easily palatable:)
I have made many more bun recipes that are softer and more delicious and at least 2 cinnamon roll recipes that are way better.
And back to my start :)When I was a starter..
I grew up with Barbies.
I LOVED Barbie.
I was maybe 6 or 7 with my first.
She was the spitting image of this one..but blonder hair and a red bathing suit...the red bathing suit though..this one is telling me that maybe it was this one;)And curly curly bangs.
I had her case♥Vinyl..she was on one side..her clothes hung up on the other side.
Not 100 % sure..which one I had..
I know feminists are not Barbie fans.
I never gave it a second thought at 6 or 7.
And having her now I still don't.
There's a lot more plastic on real people now.
I had her Barbie Fashion Shop..it was cardboard back then..
I got these photos from the internet..they are fuzzy..but see the stage?And the chairs to view the parade of clothing from the stage?
My fashion shop was never messy like the middle one lol.
I had everything placed on the shelves..in the display case.
You could see some of these items from outside Barbie's shop.
I had her Red Flare Coat, velour ..and her velour clutch and velour pillbox Jackie O velour hat..long white gloves and shoes to match.
I wish I still had that.
I don't think I ever had the dress....look at the gold clutch and pearls:)
And for some reason..I had the above for both Barbie and Ken..
Later on..Ken came to live with us..but he had flocked..kind of velveteen hair and part wore off..
Midge too..but she was never like Barbie..
I had the brunette..
they came like this..poor dolls.
Barbie ..I could change her hair a lot and make it stay with straight pins through her head..lol.Big buns ..braid and then bun too.
I loved every pair of shoes..:)
I had other outfits but it's the red flare coat set I remember loving most.The swing coat.
Eventually Skipper w/ her long blonde hair and bangs came to my house too..case and all..and a pj..I remember the pj..I may have had Scooter..but she is not clear in my mind like the others..
Skipper had hair like I would have loved...straight..even at the beach,and bangs.
Oh and I had Barbie's plastic pink and white canopy bed..(my love for canopy beds was always existent:) )
I wonder why the fabric was PLASTIC.
I didn't get all these at once..we were not well to do..at all.
But w/ birthdays etc..that would be my favorite gift..I was still playing w/ them at 11 ..
So..a lady on my daughter's Facebook sale was selling this anniversary one..w/ THAT BOX..that cardboard box I loved..
So..I bought it..♥
I showed the boys..and they were not that impressed..but they humor me.
So I am very tickled pink to have her..as I wish I had all my "stuff".
I don't know why I gave Sophie Soulis many of my things.
She was little and I was a teen..
Regrets....I've had a few..(Frank Sinatra..:)
2 other toys I liked..Chatty Cathy w/ her string and holes on her chest for the voice to come out..what an invention..did I pull on that string or what?See her talk here..
And baby Thumbelina..she was beautiful..I took such good care of her..you would put her on her stomach..on her back she had a button...you wound it up and she would gently move her head .I had the small one.I looked on EBAY..yikes.The price!
I can still smell her♥
She felt so real..I had the small one..I Googles and
remember those fake milk bottles you turned over and the milk would disappear as if your doll drank it? I LOVED those too.
I still have one of my toys..a beautiful little cradle..I will show you..it's in the attic..
When I had my girls..I was 21..23..Needless to say..I PLAYED with them..and they had a canopy bed..at one point we had 2 cribs in the house.
Happiest days of my life.
I am sure many of you have treasured memories of a favorite toy.
Maybe some of you fortunate ones still have one or 2..
