I made my first sourdough today. It was a long process because I didn’t use a pre-ferment. Next time I’ll do a poolish.
Monday night was New Year’s Eve and we had the joy of celebrating it with friends in Tucson. Surprisingly, this year we were able to make it to midnight.
Spent New Year’s at Charles and Julie’s house here in Tucson. Good times, good food, good drinks. We are looking forward to their visit in the new year in a month in Hermosillo.
We are headed to Tucson in the next hour or so. Last night’s preparations can be seen in the picture above. 600 gram cuts (1.3 lbs) for the hombres. These are the kind that out you into a coma upon completion. So excite.
Late dinner xmas eve tradition. We had all sort of tamles and other goodies. This year was Gab’s house.
Last week we went to a xmas celebration at the orphanage in San Pedro. Yun wasn’t able to go due to other obligations, but Orlabdo and Ana joined me.
We had a nice lunch yesterday after our church service.
I made 6 loaves of 3 varieties today. So nice to get a chance to make bread again.
2x chiltepin and cheese
2x chile piquin and garlic
2x fetta cheese, dried tomato, and grern olives
We went to a Naranjeros baseball game last night. Normally soccer is the most popular sporting event in Mexico, but in our city baseball ranks just as high and that we have one of the highest ranked baseball teams in the country. We never been to a game before, but last night at neighbor invited us to a game.
