It is getting late on Tuesday but I still want to get in my Tuesday Twister. Each week, Wardeh at gnowfglins holds the Tuesday Twister Blog Carnival. I love seeing what people have been working on in other real food kitchens.

This week, I made a double batch of my usual Sourdough Bread which would be six loaves. But instead of using it all for regular bread, I took out some of it for dinner rolls and then some of it for something resembling Empanadas.

The Empanadas are basically a hot pocket. Inside is ground beef, onions and cabbage all cooked together. I made them Joe’s lunches last week but we ended up eating them too. They were very good.

I took a little more dough out and made Hamburger Buns for our Sloppy Joe’s (I still ended up with three traditional loaves of bread). The Joe part was very good but the buns did not rise at all and were too spongy. I think I will try them again and see if it was just a fluke or if I can’t use my bread dough for buns. The Oven Baked French Fries were a huge hit.

I started a Ginger Bug. I used these instructionsfrom Annette at Sustainable Eats. My ‘bug’ took a few days to get fizzy but when it did, I started 2 half gallons of soda. My bug hangs out on the top of the fridge, it seems I am running out of space for all of my kitchen experiments! Maybe I need a bigger kitchen…

Here are my two sodas in process. One is Ginger flavored which I’m hoping will resemble Ginger Ale and the other is Kumquat flavored. I have frozen kumquat in my freezer that I want to use up. It tastes alot like Orange. I think it will be ready tomorrow or the next day for the bottling step. I don’t have any soda bottles so will just use smaller jars.
Have you made Soda with a Ginger Bug? Do you have a favorite flavor?
