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:

Thanks but I could become the worst food blogger ever! I am terrible at keeping diaries  :pb_mrgreen:

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 never realised that coffee is decaffeinated in prisons but of course it makes sense.

      I am more determined than ever to stay out of prison now!

      I guess the possibility of being observed by unsuspecting others was part of the thrill, otherwise why not throw a blanket over themselves after paying the operator to give them a private ride after the ride closed to the public.

      Don't tell me the operators can't or won't change the usual routine if it suits them.  

      Spoiler

      I once was paid by a family to take their young daughters to the fair for them.  The parents paid for all access armbands for all of us, plus money for food.  

      When we went on the Farris Wheel, I found out I hated the experience and tried to call to the operator that we needed to get off.  Problem was, while I was freaking out, the kids were having a great time.  So while the kids were calling out "faster!" or "backwards!", I was calling out to let me get off.  So we went slow, we went fast, we went backwards and we went forwards, for a really long time.  The more I freaked out the funnier it was for the teenaged operator and the crowed that gathered to watch me lose my shit.  

      For some reason <sarcasm/>, at one point the ride stopped right when we were at the top, and the kids discovered the joys of actively rocking the car we were in, thereby introducing a new fresh hell.  Oh, they were letting people off and putting new people on again.  I thought my torment was over, but the operator skipped our car and we got another go at the ride.  

      I was wondering if I would spend the rest of my life on that damed ride when suddenly one of the kids started screaming that she had to go pee.  We had to go around another couple of times before I called out to the operator that he'd be cleaning up the mess.

      I've never been on a Ferris Wheel since.

      I laughed out loud at Jeremy's desk... compared to the show-off monstrosity he had in Laredo. I don't other fundies and their heroes, whose portrait was hung/propped in Jeremy's office next to his own? And who hangs their own portrait in their own study? It's another thing that made me laugh.

      As stilted as they are in the video I do prefer it to the typical fundie couple lap-sitting, kissing and touching.

       His having things on the wall is in sharp contrast to Jinger’s lack of same. Except for that study, the house has a sterile feel to me. Maybe this explains her apparent lack of enthusiasm: people who enjoy interior decorating usually want to do something with the walls, and Jinger isn’t feeling it. There’s nothing wrong with that, but people who feel that way don’t usually offer a tour of their house.

      Mike Rezendes, the AP reporter who broke the Mormon story, was part of the Boston Globe team that broke the story about the Catholic priests who molested children being moved. If you haven't seen the movie Spotlight, it's well done. Triggering but well done.

      He did a really great job uncovering what happened in the Arizona case. The reason why he investigated this was due to a case in West Virginia also involving the LDS Church where the case documents are still under seal but were leaked to him. He couldn't reveal anything from that case but applied the investigation to the case where the legal case is publicly available.

      I've read quite a few critiques of the AP article, including the statements given by the LDS Church and its apologists, and what they all sidestep is the crux of his investigation - that the LDS Church does not have a uniform policy of reporting sexual abuse. If the law requires it, then report. But if the law allows for clergy members to keep it secret, then they take advantage. It's appalling. They don't want the abuser to hide their sins from the disciplinary council for fear of being prosecuted for their crimes so when they aren't required to report it they put the responsibility on the abuser/family. In this case the abuser didn't turn himself in then committed suicide, and his spouse didn't report and ended up serving time in jail.
