Fresh baked sourdough bread and some good, stinky cheese. Is there anything better than that to start off a morning? My sourdough starter is about a month old and it’s already got a nice tangy taste. It has pretty good leavening power too. I just wish I was better at making good looking bread as well as good tasting bread. The cheese is some blue goat cheese and some soft cheese from the Cheese Store in Silver Lake. I don’t know too much about cheeses other than what I like and don’t like, so I told the lady behind the counter to pick me a soft, un-mild, stinky cheese, and another cheese that’s kinda like Humboldt Fog. I’m happy with her choices even though I don’t remember what she picked out.
Since the weather has been getting warmer (finally!) I started making a pitcher of a refreshing summer drink just to have around in the fridge. The first pitcher I made was hibiscus (aka jamaica), ginger, and a little bit of sugar. This second pitcher I made was hibiscus, lemon balm, lemon verbena, and some pineapple mint. It still tastes strongly of hibiscus, but with a refreshing aftertaste thanks to the pineapple mint.
The corner of my last iPhone case was cracked because of the 100 or so times I’ve dropped it. I’m glad it was the case that’s cracked and not the iPhone. I wasn’t planning on getting a new case, but I saw this one today and I couldn’t say no. It looks exactly like the back of my iPhone, except it’s pink! How can I say no to that? It doesn’t have as much coverage in the front as I’d like, but maybe that’ll teach me to be more careful with my phone.
