Well, I told myself I was going to keep this bread making hobby relatively low impact and simple, and once again I have lied to myself. Mea culpa,mea culpa... Anyway, I have just set foot into the Dark Side of breadmaking by starting to make my own sour dough starter; 3-1/2 Tbs white bread flour and 1/4 C unsweetened pineapple juice (thanks, DW, for buying the pineapple tidbits in 100% natural, unsweetened juice!). If all goes well, gestation should take 4-5 days at which time it will become a living, breathing occupant of my kitchen that will require feeding and nurturing, and there should appropriately be a Baptism and a naming rite. I could come up with something meaningless like "the starter,
" but that would sound so wierd and sterile, especially when I go away on fishing trips and ask DW to feed this living entity that goes by "the starter."
That being said, I thought I would turn to you nice people for your suggestions for a name. We have a few days until the "birth," so we can let this thing run its course from the simple to the absurd. Once I announce that "we have starter," I will select a name from YOUR
entries and so name this little yeast beastie.
Have at it and let's see where this thing can go. Oh, remember this is a family site, so PM me with any names you can't post here.
