Joe:

Thanks for the suggestion. I'm such a non-user at the PC I couldn't even respond to your PM. Lynn and I will try your way and hopefully it will give some positive results.

Thanks,

Dave

My experimental version of NYT bread done as sourdough. Fingers crossed as yesterdays attempt ended in abject failure. This happens.

Nothing today because I'm up to my all-American ears in cake mix cookies I baked on Monday. Made them to share with my colleagues working the election with me on Tuesday. As it turned out, there was enough food there to sink the Queen Mary and the cookies were hardly touched.

I need to bake bread but it's too late start today and I'm going to be out most of tomorrow, so looks like Sunday will be bread-baking day.

The NYT sourdough is out of the oven, and I'm not particularly pleased. It's not at all like the regular NYT from the other day. It's compact and seems doughy. Too hot to slice yet, but I'm not expecting great things. Oh, well. It was an experiment, and not all experiments are successful. I'll try again sometime soon. Next I'll bake something I know comes out well.

Today I made a pumpkin roll with cream cheese filling - first time for me and it came out very well indeed. Not perfect, but very well. Question - now what - other than eat it? :) Does it need to stay in the fridge? Seriously now, I don't know and an informed answer would be most appreciated!

One of our daughters favorite things to eat this time of year so she makes it and takes it to work or best friends house a few times this season.
It usually doesn't last but when it has, I've seen it in the freezer in individual servings wrapped in S@r@nWr@p for it to be taken out later. It may be labor intensive to do this but if it's sealed well, it'll keep in there, just take out a piece as you need it, let it thaw and there you have it.

Don't bother buying the plastic wrap. I'll just pop over from Mentor and finish it off for you, That's what DC friends are for! I never met a pumpkin roll I didn't like.
