Birthdays and Bread

November has been a busy month. It seems that everyone I know were born in November. My two boys turned 3 and 5, with 4 days apart, so we have been drowning in birthday parties, and homemade birthdays cakes, buns, and other goodies. And on top of that this is the season for coughing, sneezing and staying home from School and kindergarten, so we have been watching a lot of cartoons. The boys have been on a Toy Story spree, and their biggest wish for their birthday was to get  Buzzlightyear and Woody  dolls. They did get them, and they have been playing with them ever since.

I did get to do some work this months, a lot of which I can’t show just yet, but one  illustration that I can show, is a Blog design I did for June for her new blog: VanFlittig. vanFlittigNovember was also a lot about getting my sourdough right, and I think I finally got it this time. 2 weeks ago, I succeeded getting the right crust, but unfortunately the dough collapsed when moved to the baking tray, so the crumb wasn’t perfect, but the taste was good. I ended up buying some Proving baskets, but haven’t had the time before yesterday to try them. So yesterday while making dinner, I also started a Sour Rye onion bread, and it turned out perfect when baked this morning. I’ve already made a new dough, for tomorrows bread, hoping it will turn out as nicely as todays bread.

And then winter hit us, we are covered in snow, everything is white and just magical. The boys stayed home yesterday, and after lunch we went outside to make a snowman.
