I tried some more bread baking, this time with my own sourdough starter and the result was quite amazing.

Since I don't really do recipies, but something more like guidelines, here's a short recap:
3 cups of sourdough starter, 2+ cups of King Arthur whole wheat flour (King Arthur flour - best flour, never bleached, never bromated) and some water to make a nice, not too firm dough.
As for spices: About 1 tbsp each of anise, fennel, caraway and 1 tsp coriander and about 1 tbsp salt. What makes it really great is 1 cup each of Harvest Grains Blend and pumpkin seeds and 1/2 cup of red wheat berries (soaked before use.)

Let it rise for about 50 min and bake for about 1 hour at 400F.
Try using it for grilled cheese sandwich with pepper jack, totally awesome.

No Escape.

ISS Flyby

| No Comments
ISS_flyby.jpgToday there was the opportunity to watch the International Space Station fly over Tempe and I tried to make some pictures of the event. Sighting opportunity started at 8:28pm, lower center part of the image. The ISS then proceeded upward with the whole event lasting for about one minute. It was actually pretty cool since it was moving fairly fast across a wide stretch of the night sky.

NASA has a neat website where you can look up sighting opportunities and it gives you time and directions of the flightpath.
