I've moved here from mastodon.social, am entirely new to the world of all things art, and am merely aspiring at the moment. Got myself an iPad Pro and Apple Pencil and have been doodling around in Procreate. I'm hoping to get inspired and learn from all your amazing pieces of artwork.
This is a before and after of the poolish, plus the resulting loaves and the sliced bread. I was expecting even more sourdoughiness from this, but instead it's a lot more like white bread-stick bread, and doesn't have the sourdough chewiness or flavour like the other recipes I've done. Still delicious, of course, but I might stick with the other recipe for my bread, at least until I get around to making ACTUAL sourdough.
$6.3 Billion. You’d STILL have 6.3 BILLION dollars. Just let it rot in the bank and the interest you would garner would be upwards of $60,000,000/per year. Even IF the Gov taxed Bill at $100 Billion, it would STILL take the avg retail worker 414,000 YEARS to make the same amount of money he’d still have left AFTER being taxed $100 billion dollars. It would take a waitress 100,000 years longer than HomoSapiens have existed to catch up to Bill Gates AFTER being taxed $100Billion.
I'm currently drinking a Drambuie (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Drambuie) and let me tell you, it is goddamn delicious. 👌
I'm trying one of the slightly more advanced recipes from the bread book, this one involves making poolish (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pre-ferment) the night before and letting it rise — in this case 500g flour, 500g of 27˚C water, and a scant 1/8th of a teaspoon of yeast — then mixing that tomorrow with more water and yeast and flour. Really keen to see how it comes out!
Mike's one piece of advice for new Mastodon users - dive into that Federated column and follow ANYONE and EVERYONE who looks like they've posted anything at all interesting to you. Just hammer the button. There's no penalty for mistakes. Go wild.
Later, when your Home timeline is buzzing, go in and unfollow people you decide you're not enjoying so much now.
Then do that again a few times. Then some more. Forever.
