So this week I ... learnt how to make sourdough starter

Frankie Magazine has a new 'brother' mag called the Smith Journal. It's for boys, it has pretty pictures and articles on manly stuff. Jeremy initially was sceptical about it cos he thought it was a girls view of boys stuff. But then he had a read. And then we followed the article on how to make the Sourdough Mother - or the Starter or Chef or whatever you wish to call it - and we decided to give it a try. It was all good (although, we're still not entirely sure it will work out) until we got to a phrase: "You will feed your chef 3 times, every 24 hours, before it's ready to use". Is that 9 times over 3 days or 3 times over 3 days? A deep discussion on punctuation and instruction writing ensued. We settled on once every 24 hours for 3 days after some not very thorough googling. Now, it's fingers crossed.
