Rabbit Renovations

Camille and her friend, Kelly, decided to get rid of the broken down hutch in the rabbit area when they came up last weekend.  The rabbits had chewed the legs off and had otherwise rendered it more eyesore than shelter.  The bunnies used it as an outhouse so you get an idea of the low rent district condition.

Sage and Basil are enjoying their roomy digs.  They have the hutch they like and use and now they have lots of open area to run around and play.  It makes it easier for cleaning too.  Camille and Kelly had a good time dismantling the old hutch.

I made sourdough bread to go with dinner tonight.  Somebody asked me how I made my starter and, to be honest, I can't remember.  Most of the starter recipes are similar and I don't think it makes a huge difference which one you use.  I think I got my recipe from the newspaper.   It is labor intensive in the beginning because you have to feed your starter fresh flour and water every day for quite a few days.  After that, it's a piece of cake.  I've been using the same starter for close to ten years.  It sits in a jar in the refrigerator.  When I want to make bread, I pull it out a few day in advance and start feeding it so it is strong and ready to go.  Then, I put it back in the refrigerator.  Most instructions will tell you to feed weekly.  I don't.  My starter has sat in the fridge for months.  It still works great.



It went great with dinner:

  1. Dinner looks delicious! I am still a little hung up on using the same starter for 10 years. That is amazing.

  5. I had a wonderful bunny hutch built for my bunnies. They moved in two weeks after I got them. They have chewed the hutch so much. I wish there were a way to get them to stop. Your bunnies are so cute. Blessings!
