No Knead Sourdough Bread

So I've had lots of time this afternoon to pass the time in prayer for my little granddaughter ... and I put some of my nervous energy into good use by finishing up a nice round loaf of no-knead bread that was started last night.

I took the premise for the recipe from an article in the 'Mother Earth News' on-line magazine and made it my own by using my own grind of sprouted flour, soaked 6-grain cereal mix and some sourdough starter.  Of course, I didn't use a recipe .. just followed the one in the magazine for proportions of flour and water.

Look what transpired :)

Update on baby Rowan:  She's off the heart by-pass and almost out of surgery.  After receiving a heart 'make over' and a new valve, her heart is much happier .. along with her mommy, daddy and entire family.

third try!

I'm so glad to hear about Rowan. I've been praying for her on and off since I read the previous post. We have good friends who's daughter had a heart transplant last fall. It's amazing what they can do these days -- medically.

The bread looks good. I might have to give bread making a try again.

It was touch and go before I left the hospital at midnight .. and I haven't heard anything yet this morning. Baby is not out of the woods yet .. but has been prayed for by many loving friends and family members .. if you have her on your heart today .. please continue to pray. Thank you.
