My Redeemer Lives

You’ve got to watch this clip if you haven’t already.

A son asks his father to run The Iron Man with him. 

In case you didn’t know

‘The Iron Man’ is the toughest triathlon in existence raced the past few years right here in my neck of the woods.

2.4 mi swim in open water (an icy cold turbulant lake), then 112 mi by bike, and finally a marathon which is 26 miles 385 yards running.

You won’t believe the magnitude of this until you watch!

    Very inspiring. It made me cry. Thanks for sharing it.

    Fries and root beer for lunch doesn’t sound too healthy, but it does sound like a memory maker. You have your hands full, Jessie. Don’t beat yourself up.

Sourdough Update

Many of you have been checking back for results on my sourdough creation. At the moment it is still a science experiment, but a happy, bubbly experiment. Never fear, recipes will be here! I did make a beautiful, moist and delicious loaf of sourdough using yeast and a myriad of other ingredients but I'm still trying to create something more user friendly. Wouldn't it be awesome to have a starter on the counter that you could add 4 things to and have a loaf of bread by dinner? Mmmm! Attempt #1 - rose well but resulted in a dense chewy blob Attempt #2 - rose ok but was thin and lifeless then fell and another dense (not so chewy) blob Attempt #3 - to the dogs! Attempt #4 - A sourdough pancake success see post under what's for breakfast gluten-free goof? Ongoing - I've tried several more times and am going to try a completely different approach on the bread starting this week. (Mar 18). My sourdough is still happy on my counter and it makes great pancakes but it's a lot of work just for pancakes. Keep checking! April Update: She is still kickin and I'm still workin on a yeast free, gluten free sourdough loaf! May Update: My sourdough "pet" has been dried and retired until next baking season. I've traded her in for a hotter model, the BBQ! :)
