Not a BUDINO, but

I'm going to try again this weekend.

(Who knew that flour can get old?)

And best of luck to PAB and his surgery today!

flour doesn't go bad, like in rancid bad, but it loses its fluffiness over time and gets dense and icky.

you can sift it and spring new life to it

or you can buy new flour

or is that just the scot in me?

our cupboard was recently full of moths. and i still keep finding those little larves (larvas?) worm things in all the dry stuff - even the flour.

even know i threw EVERYTHING away, including the flour, which was in a tightly wound, clear plastic container.

i'm still finding moths and their larva things - even in the flour. ewe.

sometimes when i cook brown rice now, i look for little eyes in the kernals because they look like larva.

i'm rambling.

anyway, that looks good.

that's what I was going to say too! have we all had weevils in our flour? what's that say about our baking?

of course, old flour is good for marking cross courses.

btw, keep baking like that and you'll definitely rival beth's quads -- just not with muscle.
