At first, I thought my attempt to make sourdough was going to be fruitless.  I let the dough rise for a few hours and nothing was rising. 

My husband brought the dough back to life by mixing some yeast and warm water in a bowl, adding a little flour, and then needing the mixture with the non-risen sourdough.  He let it rise for about an hour, kneaded it alittle more, and then let it rise for one more hour on the baking pan.

I never expected it to turn out so great!  It was sooooo good!!

Now I am on to proofing! I added one cup of flour, one cup warm water and now I must leave it out for the night.  I am planning on making the bread tomorrow, otherwise when the starter is done you put it in the fridge. Can’t wait to see how this turns out!
