Peek-A-Boo! was mixed during the 2 minute 'blackout' of the 2017 Solar Eclipse in Madras, Oregon, centered in the 'path of totality'. My hope is that I (and others) will enjoy some freshly baked bread from this same starter in 28 years, while observing the NEXT solar eclipse to pass across the U.S. along a similar path. Below are pics of before/after mixing, and 4th day activity/progress. Enjoy!
Peek-A-Boo! sprang to life very quickly. While I can't say for certain what exactly I can attribute this to (maybe just some good 'ol eclipse mojo), I am appreciating the rewards just the same. In exactly five days time from initial mix of this starter to mixing up the first batch of dough (really, she was ready nearly a day before that, but I wanted to be sure). She is very inspired!
