Baking day,

But before that, a catch up on the week so far.

Monday was bacon and mushrooms in a cheese sauce with pasta, easy to do but very tasty. I got a large bag of Bacon off cuts ages ago and froze it in portions.

I fried the bacon and mushrooms while the pasta was cooking and made a cheese sauce. When everything is cooked the only preparation you have is to throw it all in together and give it a stir.

Add some grated cheese over the top and bake for about 30 minutes.

We have Alpaca's just up the road, that's the second group I've spotted locally now. I just need them to come a little closer to the camera.

We took the dog for a swim on Tuesday as it was a beautiful day, he enjoyed chasing sticks and made a friend

Now onto the bread, I'm making a White and Rye Sourdough and some experimental rolls,

which will have Balsamic Vinegar in them, amongst other things.

Full recipes as usual will be on my Bread Blog, but here are a few pictures of the process.
