Kitchen experiment

For the last few months, I am happy to say I have been making my own bread from a sourdough starter that I also made myself. This morning I decided to try two new things with it--1. substitute honey for the sugar, 2. use wheat flour. I used the same amount of honey as the recipe calls for sugar and reduced the liquids by 1/8 cup. And I substituted 1/3 of the bread flour for wheat flour. We'll see how it turns out.

Now I'll be leaving it to rise for the day while we go to Joann's. (Yay!) Thread is on sale for 1/2 off and so are clearance fabrics. If only the notions wall was, it'd be the perfect sale! Did I mention there is a save an addition 10% off your entire purchase coupon in the ad? I'm trying not to blow the budget too bad though because I happen to love their Black Friday sale, and that is just around the corner.

Here's links to the recipes I used for my starter and the bread I make:

Hi Jenny,

That bread sounds really yummy. How did it come out?
In case you are wondering who I am, I am the one who posted the Green Toy giveaway on BD. Thanks for entering and sorry that you did not win.
I really enjoyed learning all the things that people are doing to go green! I was happily surprised by how many people are using reusable bags! My current green challenge to myself to is decrease the number of disposable napkins we use. With 2 kids in the house it is kind of hard to do (I am sure you can relate).
I wanted to let my fellow bloggers know that I am doing an
Act2-GreenSmart shoulder bag giveaway on my blog if you’re interested in entering.
It is nice to “meet” you!

We're happy to have bought our property a few years ago, but as any homeowners know, owning a home just adds to your list of projects and chores because there's always improvements to be made and maintenance to be done. On our burgeoning homestead, we have chickens, guineas, a few goats, and our most recent additions-rabbits.

About This Blog

I picked the name Petalz and Finz a couple years ago when I decided to try Etsy out. I wanted to custom make some baby related items and have things for girls and boys. I felt the name incorporated both my kids (at the time) into it--petalz for Ivy and finz for Finn.

I haven't had time to do much of anything with my Etsy for a while, but it's still my in my long term goals. In the mean time, I'm having fun with this blog thing. I've found some creative inspiration through my own posting, but also through many other wonderful blogs out there.
