My sourdough starter is rather active. I should have taken a picture but yesterday, I fed the starter like I always do, put it in a quart jar as I always do, went back into the kitchen a few hours later to put it in the fridge and it had overflowed and was all over the counter . . which it has never done.
We were supposed to have storms last night so I took a nap (sounds like a good excuse, right?) so I could stay up with Rita and Vince could sleep. While napping, I dreamed that the sourdough starter had slipped off the counter and oozed into the bedroom and was all over me and I couldn’t breathe. I was trying to wipe it away from my nose and mouth and was really fighting it when I slapped myself in the face and woke up. How crazy is that?
The sourdough bread dough (ferment) stays out all night and I’ve never had it overflow the bowl and it did that two nights in a row. I either need to use a larger bowl or reduce the amount of dough.
It’s kinda weird because the loaf bread rose and produced a really big, light loaf where the round loaf was the usual size and texture.
I just hope I don’t have any more attacks of the sourdough starter.
