Today was quite a different story - lovely blue sky and the temperature climbing - I couldn't wait to get outdoors. I had quite a few errands to run, mostly to do with tomorrow's meal, but I was home by 11:30 a.m. I whipped up a quick marinade for the lamb I will cook tomorrow, and got a loaf started in the bread machine using a sour dough starter I put together yesterday. Unfortunately, I must have omitted some of the liquid because the dough wouldn't come together. A quick fix (more warm water with some yeast added), some gentle kneading, then back in the machine to finish the cycle. Miraculously it has risen! Only on Easter could this happen. It is now in the oven and, hopefully, it will taste delicious.
