Sourdough?

I decided to challenge myself. The challenge is how long can I feed my bf and myself before I need to go grocery shopping.

With my garden growing like wild and being in a farm community where lots of fresh foods can be had, I want to see if I can manage the summer without having to go shopping.

So far it’s been fairly simple, it’s been 3 weeks since my last shopping trip and I’ve managed to bake bread, make salads from the garden, cooked a roast beef dinner with all the fixings (for 2 it was a lot of food. Lol)

As this challenge progresses, I’m also going to try to push my limits as to what I can make from scratch, so I started my own sour dough bread starter (the recipe I’m using is from http://www.thekitchn.com) I’m pleased with what I’m seeing so far, I’m on day 4 of 5 and it looks like my sourdough starter is growing as it should!!

The first thing I think I’ll need to go shopping for is going to be flour. Hopefully I can make the 5lbs of flour I have left last another 3 months.

Cheers
