Holiday Snaps

Well, yes, we’re home after getting a final comprehensive soaking (and a fabulous last meal at Tupina) in Bordeaux on Saturday night.
As well as the annual self portrait of Sue and me sitting against the hedge I usually do the starter snaps for those doubters who are scared of their leaven. Before we left I refreshed my white and rye starters and put them in the fridge for the duration. I also took some white starter to France so we could ensure decent bread there.
Just to show absolute confidence the starter in France went down the sink before we came back.
After five and a half weeks in the fridge this is how the white starter looked:

    Hello Mick
    Hope you are feeling “refreshed” after your holiday though it probably took you more than 8 hours to perk up.

    • Tomorrow I have to go into hospital to have what they euphemistically call a “procedure”. I am a total conviction coward but your awful puns have taken my mind off it for while. Shan’t be wanting to borrow one of your bikes for a few days.

  2. Hi Mick

    What do you do about the ‘liquor’ on the top of the starter: mix it in or pour it away?

    Best of luck with the hospital visit.

    Thought you would have had a crêpe time but seems like you had a boule.

    Oh you both think you’re a right pair of funny batards…

  6. No, I think I’m a funny batard

    I was just about to say that Mick is the real baguetter of the merriment.
