I am watching baseball, so I wanted a snack... feel a bit under the weather, so I made my snack antiviral. Breadsticks made with sourdough starter... 1 and 1/2 cups AP flour, 1/2 tsp salt, plus a dash, 1/2 cups sourdough starter/water, a teaspoon of oilive oil... knead 10 minutes. Let rise 2 hours, punch down, rise another hour, form a flat, rectangular loaf (like focaccia bread) rise another hour, bake at 400 until light brown. Drizzle or brush with olive oil into which raw garlic, oregano and basil have been crushed. Salt or sprinkle with parm. Dip into the sauce. Sauce: sweat down a medium onion, finely chopped in olive oil, then 3-5 cloves fresh chopped garlic, add salt, cook in the oil fresh, chopped oregano, basil, parsley and rosemary, crushed dried red pepper and black pepper. Add crushed tomatoes, a dash or red wine and simmer into a thick, rich, very aromatic sauce. A couple of gin and tonics, made with juniper, citrus and quinine just might do the job!

Ten minutes of kneading, four hours rising: looks like it was a fairly long baseball game. That aside, any inning is a good time for a gin and tonic.

Well, I didn't wait for the game to start!  I also cooked a pot-roast for later.

(I figured as much, but found the notion of getting up and baking while the game continues for hours unending more amusing than your planning ahead.) At the risk of getting this thread locked for political debate, who's playing and whom are you rooting for?

You are funny.  Braves versus Brewers.  I've been a Braves fan since I was 10, but Milwaukee is one hell of a good baseball town!

It's difficult to root against the fellows who make the beer, even if they're yankees, but my mother first learned to sing the national anthem as a child with the closing, "o'er the land of the free, and the home of the Braves," so here's wishing your team good luck.

Well, I make my own beer and I love the Braves!  At least she didn't think it was "Jose can you see?"
