Afton: I wish you could come home so I could show you my biga.
Glenn: You know I would love to see your biga.
(The first of many obscene sounding conversations Glenn and I had yesterday after realizing "biga" is a funny word.)
A biga is just the starter for the ciabatta that I am working on. I told you it is a two day process! The fermented biga is what gives ciabatta bread and sourdough bread their tanginess. Today is the second day, and soon I will get to put it in the oven!
Maybe tomorrow I will have pictures of golden, perfect ciabatta loaves to show you instead of gooey biga.
And because no post is complete without a picture of cute Violet:
(she looks like a pirate with that earring, right? We tried to get a picture with her flower headband covering her eye like an eyepatch, but she wasn't having it.)
