Gift from Alaska...

Check out this AWESOME picture of
Diane & Dennis...
I am SO jealous!!

We have had record high tempertures here in New Mexico
109 degrees...yikes!
Let's just say...that SNOW looks so inviting...

While on her trip to Alaska,
Diane picked up this sweet little gift for me

It is a Sourdough Starter

(Diane is SO generous and just LOVES to SPOIL us!!!)

I always had Sour Dough Starter in the refrigerator
ready for breads and my favorite...Peach Cobbler.
When I became ill, I lost interest in EVERYTHING
I am now starting to bake again and I am really excited
to start my Sourdough...

This kit has the Sourdough Starter along with directions and recipes...

This is a very simple recipe...
starter packet, 2 cups flour and 2 cups warm water
into a bowl

mix gently with a wooden spoon until smooth

now cover with plastic wrap and a dish towel
Place in a warm place for 36-48 hrs
(gently stir several times a day)

Thank you so much Diane!!!
Have a Blessed Day...
