Sourdough Bread Recipe - Wish Me Luck!

I'm hoping to catch some wild yeast! OK, I know that sounds weird, but it's true. I just found out that sour dough bread is made from a starter that "catches" wild yeast as it sits on your counter. Totally bizarre. However, it got my frugal brain thinking. "You mean, I can stop buying yeast for bread? Hmm...." I wondered if, here in suburbia, I could possibly get that to happen, so I've got a bowl of flour and water out on my counter right now and my fingers are crossed. : )

Here is the link for how to get started. Sounds like fun (or at least like a fun science experiment with the kids). Hey, if your starter doesn't work out, you can make some awesome paper mache masks or ornaments or something. For heaven's sake, don't throw it out! : )
