These sound wonderful. I love the idea of them being for outdoor eating - it's pouring with rain here!

Hi Gill, What Gorgeous crusty rolls - I love sourdough, it's so versatile if you give it a chance isn't it?

Oh no! Choclette. Poor you. We had a lecky storm for the Wedding evening, but it's been cool and bright otherwise.
Almost glorious.

Morning Zeb.
It certainly is.
I do like the way you don't really know what you are going to get until you slice into the sourdough.
It's always a drama.

Beeyootiful, Grilly! So nice to hear from you, you've been in my thoughts. Lovely to see the glorious things emanating from your kitchen! xxx

Gill the Painter said...

Thank you so much Celia.
Nice to be up and running again.

I have been cooking, but nothing very new or of note just yet.

But I've got a few projects coming up, cooking and painting.

Looks fab Gill. I shall have to make some to take for lunch. I'd better de-freeze some starter next weekend and get on with it. They really look tasty.

Odette said...

Gill, your sourdough bread always looks wonderful! Reminds me, I must do a refresh and bake, myself. Your rolls look light and crusty and the biz!

Howdy Odette and Lucinda

Yes, get them starters fed, and bread baked. It's rather relaxing when you have a routine.

I've still got Dan's nuggets of starter in the freezer.
I'll test one to see if it still bakes up, Lucinda.

Lucinda said...

Mine has been in the freezer for ages Gill - I have my doubts about it. I'll be interested to get your feedback.

Lovely rolls Gill, making me hungry and it is not even 8 yet! I must get my frozen sour dough starter out today and reactivate it.
