Tip of the Week: Start a Morning Routine
Near the beginning of today's episode, I shared the new morning routine that I'm following and loving… to start my day in the right frame of mind. Please share your morning routine in the comments — I'd love to hear what you do each morning to get in sync with the day ahead and your purpose.
Here's the journaling template I mentioned: Journaling Template from Michael Hyatt.
“Hi, Wardee, I've now baked with my sourdough started quite a few things (your chocolate cake J, biscuits, bread of all kinds). It all comes out crusty'ish… I really need a recipe or a technique for a soft bread and soft buns (sort of like store-bought hamburger buns or soft sandwich bread). Is it possible to create a soft roll/bun/bread out of sourdough?Sorry, to clarify… By soft, I mean soft on the outside, not crusty. It seems the long rising time is hardening the outside (no matter now well I cover it with a towel for the 2nd rise). Everything just seems to come out hard on the outside. I try putting them in the plastic bag after the stuff cools and it softens the crust, but it's still really thick and just too chewy…“
