Good morning everyone! 

Happy anti-fast! And happy birthday to meeee.

To seriously celebrate this important day (seriously, a milestone in the history of humankind!)...voila,  bread with nutella!

20151107_083805.thumb.jpg.a0bea4cbb10974 Apologies to everyone for the pisspoor quality of pics, you know,  I'm trying to un-follow Maxwell's footsteps, but Christopher's genuine talent for ruining any shoot just sticks with me...

Directly from the Shelter, here is the recipe for the bread you see in the pic: 

50 gr of sourdough, melt (stirring slowly) with 200gr of water (slightly warm 24ºC), leave it rest and air for 20/30 minutes, then add 150gr flour (sifted, I use 100gr whole flour and 50gr manitoba), let it rest (well closed at 21º/22º C) for 12/13 hours (if you do it in the evening, til next morning).Next morning the rested mixture should be full of bubbles.You add 400gr of water (24ºC, keep some to melt the salt and add later) ad stir, let it rest and air for some 20/30 minutes. Then add 100gr whole flour (sifted) and 750gr of your favourite flour (sifted, better if with it is a flour with good strength, otherwise you can mix it with some manitoba). You start to knead [it is important when you knead that you make a movement like folding and then pressing the dough, it helps to develop the gluten chain, it is an instinctive movement, so nothing difficult] and add the water you left with 18/19gr of salt. Work kneading for some 10 minutes. When you feel the knead is soft and homogenous you put it to rest in a warm place (24º/26ºC) for 2,5 hours or until you see it doubles. to increase the final volume during this first fermentation you can (for a maximum of two times) gently turn the dough upside down and fold it on itself like a towel, it's not mandatory but it helps. Then you gently take it and make 3 parts of 550gr ca, let the boulages rest for 15/30 minutes til the knead relaxes. Then gently fold every boulage on itself giving it the shape you prefer. You put it on your unplugged oven's plate to rest for 1/1, 5 hours (covered with some thin foil), you must not directly touch the knead with your hands anymore till it is cooked.When it is rested you take it out and put the oven at 220ºC with a little bowl of water inside, when it reaches the temperature you can make the cut (if you want) on top of your knead and then put it in the oven. It cooks for half an hour then you lower the temperature at 200ºC for another 15/20 minutes. To know if your bread is cooked you knock on its bottom and if it sounds void it's ready.ETA it's better to put it on a grid to cool down. if you like a crunchy crust in the last 10 minutes of cookng you can keep the oven's door slightly open (with a wooden spoon) to let the steam come out and when the bread is cooked leave it for some ten to twenty minutes in the oven (turned off) with the door fully open.I know this recipe seems too much trouble but for me it's worth it. I usually do it once or twice a week, I make a lot and then I freeze what we don't eat so I have a stock for the whole week.

Anyway, let's enjoy the breakfast and see you later for the menu of the day (hint: cake...risotto...pizza...)

Yippie! I was hoping you would start a cooking blog. :my_smile:

Mr. Spoon smokes hams and bacon, so our breakfast/brunch was:

Sauteed home ham chunks, potato (reheated from the smoker), eggs, jalapeno cheese, and homegrown green onion cooked together in a scramble.

      I firmly believe that Braggie will never admit that any part of parenting is/was fun.  Look how she is now with Shiloh and the current crying babies and how much she really really really really doesn't want twins. 

      Braggie lives to be a martyr, so to her hardisthesameasgood. Good in the sense that the world will see how hard her life is, how painful the pregnancies, what a selfless martyr she is, what a wonderful mother she is because she endures all the hardness and pain and crying and twins, and martyrdom because Jesus. 

      Braggie will not have happy fun memories of motherhood because to her it's not happy, none of it At. All. Ever.

      I doubt seriously her children will have any fun memories of their childhoods with their buzzkill, suck out the all the joy, M is for Martyr mother.

      That's a whole lot of words to say "Don't watch the documentary, It's false because I say so! And my mom was the godliest prophet ever. Gwen 4EVA!"

      Exactly… and “y’all stay on board, you hear!”  Only a brief word about the loss of her husband at the end and no word about the loss of other lives.  Seemed to me like a sales pitch for Weigh Down classes.

      Elizabeth Shamblin Hannah posted this lengthy praise of her mother on the Weigh Down Ministries FB page…

       

      Thanks for sharing the long passage by Elizabeth. It is amazing to see the mindset that is still a part of RF. As I read through it I felt a mixture of sadness and anger. 
       

      I felt sadness because it is clear that the leaders of RF are completely blinded. They want to dismiss the documentary as “false accusations” from “enemies of God.” They want to claim that they have the TRUTH (always fully capitalized) and everything else is lies. From things Gwen taught while we were a part of RF, I know that if a prominent religious leader was killed in a manner such as she was she would have said that it was God’s judgment. But this writing makes it clear that they will not examine what they have done and people will continue to be hurt and abused by their controlling practices. 
       

      I felt anger because there is no remorse for anything they have done. The documentary brought that out regarding the death of the Smith boy - according to Gwen they did nothing wrong. They will not consider the stories of real experiences of real people that have damaged and, in some cases, destroyed lives. However I do believe that the lack of responsibility will lead to greater consequences.

      Besides this, it looked like a nice wedding, the video was well made, everyone seemed happy, the lack of Josh was refreshing. I know only some of the brothers were groomsmen but given TLC wasn't filming they might have chosen to include him if they'd wanted to. That or they edited him and fam out because they felt it wouldn't go down well with the fans, and that's fine by me too. They get the message, on some level.

      I also think the more ''younger Duggars'' wedding we will see, the less Josh will be included in the wedding parties. The smaller kids are probably not even that close to him. Josh married in 2008 and thus left home when Justin was 6 YO. I doubt they are that close (thank goodness).

      LOL, I read the Bible an awful lot for someone who's a hard-materialist atheist. But, then, I was raised culturally Christian, & US culture is so deeply steeped in Christianity, it's difficult to escape it.
      I like the Bible websites, tending to like the gateway one better than the hub one, for usability reasons. I really like that they have all the versions, all the different books, & all the commentaries. I did buy a Bible, in college lol, a big fat scholastic bible with all the books & a ton of footnotes. I started an atrocity project with it long ago & it's full of post-its.
      I've definitely developed a preference in versions, liking the NIV best so far, it's marvelously clear & the least disappointing when I dig into the depths. The KJVs are muddled & difficult to understand. Recently I've gotten to thinking that's why all these my-own-private-patriarchal-cult & grifters & et al like the KJVs so much, cuz they're a more obscure version that requires more 'explaining', is more open to interpretation. In addition to the obvious historical reasons why, like feeling all connected to the Pilgrim eras, & sounding all Shakespearean.
      I mostly end up reading the Bible as a fact-checking exercise, wondering what the verses & chapters say, the verses that people will have in their bios or social media postings. Tho' I do a fair amount of wondering why people think a thing that ostensibly has Biblical roots, digging around that.
      Fwiw.
