Finished March Bread

6 loaves of bread, made March 2010

Bread
By E.J. Mudd

Mix flour, water yeast and salt.
If the phones rings, don’t answer.
Your fingers are a sticky mess.

Let dough rise in a nice, warm place.
If the phone rings, don’t answer.
You’re creating.

Knead till satiny. Divide into loaves.
If the phone rings, don’t answer.
You’re sculpting.

Bake in hot oven till crisp and brown.
If the phone rings, don’t answer.
You’re in aromatherapy.

Take out and eat a piece at once.
If the phone rings, don’t answer.
You’re in heaven.

Panis Angelicus.

Diane Rehm looks for the perfect loaf.

Food fads, revisited

Food fads, revisited

Food fads are a thing. Every year, it seems, we learn about something else we should or shouldn’t do or eat for so-called optimal health. Milk is in until it isn’t. Alternate kinds of milk are in until they aren’t. We can eat based on our blood types. We can use ancient traditions. We can even get into gastro-molecular inventions (what!?).
