Fun with sourdough!!!

On Tuesday I started my first successful sourdough starter. Yesterday, I used it to make a pre-loaf sponge. Today, success! I just pulled two nicely-shaped, crispy, crusty sourdoughs out of the oven. The crumb was tight, the flavor was perfect (for those who don't like too sour a loaf). It would seem that I finally live in a house with wild yeasts conducive to leavening bread. Whoo-hoo!
