Will I ever get to the end of all this stuff? I keep sorting boxes, but I never see an end to it all! But I hope that one day I will finish cleaning up the studio and I will become amazingly more productive because everything is organized so well.
Until that day, life goes on. My chickens are laying now:
I only have three chickens now. We started with a dozen, but over the summer we’ve lost nine to various predators. Most days all three are laying eggs, so that is plenty!!
To make traditional buckwheat cakes: 1) make your starter – 1 cup flour, 1 cup water and 1 pkg dry yeast. Stir together and let sit overnight. Be sure to put it in a large container (I use a mason jar), because it will bubble up. 2) A few hours or more before you want to make cakes, mix 2 cups buckwheat flour with most of the starter. Be sure to keep a little starter in the jar. Add more flour and water to the jar to keep your starter going. 3) After you have let the cake batter raise for a few hours (even overnight), mix a teaspoon of salt and of baking soda with a couple tablespoons of brown sugar. Stir in some hot water to dissolve, then stir it into the batter. You want a pretty thin batter. 4) Cook on a medium hot griddle (be real traditional and use bacon fat to grease your pan)
