Mac has been attending church in Nashville, and we went with him about 6 weeks ago. We were invited to the pastor's house for Sunday dinner following worship. The entire meal was delicious from start to finish, including the bread. I emailed Deborah for the recipe, and it was then that she informed me it was sweet sourdough, and that I would need a starter.
She could send one with Mac one Sunday. (Ummm... do you think a male college freshman living in a dorm room is going to feed a sourdough starter properly? Me either.) Or she could give me a starter the next time we visited. I chose the second option.
I received my starter this past weekend, and finally got to bake my bread this morning. It was worth the wait!
