I worked outside for a little while today with my tomatoes, herbs, and flowers. Friday's are also the day I go to market to get my preferment ready for Monday.
My flowers and tomatoes are doing well, and it was a beautiful day in our area of the world. The sun was shining, and it wasn't too hot or humid. I did pick a lot of tomatoes today, and am not sure if I am going to make more tomato sauce or try something different with them tomorrow. The tomatoes seem to be ripening so fast now. Butterflies are becoming much more plentiful in our area. I really love butterflies!
Market sure seems different when I go there on Fridays. It is quiet and no other lights are on, but my little light. I generally clean, fill the deli case with sodas and water, make sure my oven is cleaned well, things are filled, make the preferment, wash the floor, and fold pizza boxes, or anything else that might need done.
My mother is aging, and I don't know what will happen with her. I do take meals to her, and check on her different times of the day. I guess the role is now reversed. Years ago, she took care of me, now I guess it is time to take care of her. I drive her to any appointments, get her groceries or pills, and my daughter also helps. Our family is getting smaller, so not many close relatives can help. There aren't even many close relatives living near us anymore.
All in all, it was a good day! :) The beauty of summer and still having my mother...........
There are so many variables that go into making a PIZZA. The hydration of the dough, flour, yeast and many more.. Amounts of any kind of yeast in a pizza can make a big difference. Most recipes posted on the web, use too much yeast in their recipes. What I have found out so far, is either bulk fermenting the dough or cold fermenting the dough will give a better flavor in the crust. I am still experimenting to find different flavors in the crust of pies. In my opinion pizza is all about the best flavor you can achieve in a crust. I still am on the journey about flavors in the crust. Even differences in temperatures in you home or times of the year can influence how much yeast to use. If you want a pizza to develop flavors in the crust, there are many ways to go about achieving this.
