[@336854,redredred] I am in Australia. Supermarkets still open and we're allowed to go ( for now) I am just trying to minimise my interactions with strangers. I will go and get it tomorrow. Thank you.
What kind bread do you make? Please share easy recipe for me to try..:)

[@1058918,Orlbe] I've had the same sour dough starter for more than a year now. Access the first and second Tartine books and follow his sour dough process and recipe. It is an incredibly easy recipe, no kneading, all it requires is time. It takes all day but the actual work is minimal.

You will need a scale and a covered baking dish. I use a cast iron Lodge pot and baking parchment and I get fantastic results; as good as any artisanal bakery product Ive ever had.

[@336854,redredred] Awesome. Thank you so much! I will try it :)

Valentine · M
[@1089099,kneesocks] Mmmm, chocolate. I do admit (quietly) to having panic bought that. But so did many others when I looked.

Crisps....specifically Cheese n Onion square

[@1074484,Coisty] Yumm. Tried them smashed to smithereens on white bread and butter with salad cream? My friend did, and he said that was great...🤥
Coisty · 46-50, M
[@137437,Valentine] they're ok on a sandwich without the salad cream

neither of those are essentials actually.

Buy canned goods, flour, sugar, salt, yeast.
Valentine · M
[@8911,goliathtree] ...sugar? The white poison??! Nooooo, don't do it my friend...
goliathtree · 51-55, M
[@137437,Valentine] sorry, natural preservative.
Aziraphale · 22-25, F
Soaps, detergent, body shampoo, vegetables, canned foods, coffee, french fries, chilli sauce, ketchup, peppers, tampons...
Valentine · M
[@918492,Aziraphale] They do say your trolley builds up a pretty accurate picture of its shopper. Must admit, I'm getting a full picture here! Take care. Ps: if you get short, I can help you with all but one item...😂

For me. My daily bar of chocolate. Some folks smoke
Some drink alcohol
For me a bar of chocolate a day keep the depression away
Valentine · M
[@1060443,Burrito] I don't smoke, otherwise... And I bet there's a few with dodgy lungs who will be giving it up soon as well...

[@356742,SirfurryanimalWales] Mrs G??! I sent her a PM, but no answer here. Send her my 💖 and I hope she's well 🤗
SirfurryanimalWales · 61-69, M
[@137437,Valentine] I will tell her as she never comes here.We play on word game apps.
Valentine · M
[@356742,SirfurryanimalWales] Ok. Tell her it's reasonably safe these days as far as I can see? A few of the 'safe' crowd here!!
