EDM Challenge #84 - Bread


EDM Challenge #84 - Bread
Originally uploaded by SideShowMom.
Does everyone know about cinnamon sugar toast? Toast, butter, cinnamon, sugar. I mix the cinnamon and sugar in an empty spice bottle so we have it ready. Rianna eats it most days for breakfast and tried to eat some today but it scratched her sore throat. We use wheat bread, going through about a loaf a week, sometimes more. I grew up on Wonder Bread, though. It was supposed to be healthy, or something, now we know better. I have baked bread from scratch, some black rye bread that turned out heavy as a stone, what a texture that had! Our current infatuation is for the dough balls you can buy in the freezer section. You thaw them in the microwave for a few seconds, the put them in a greased pan with greased plastic wrap over them to rise for 2 hours in the oven with the burner off. It stays just warm enough. Then you bake them for 15 minutes, nice and fluffy! I like bread!

Great post. Cinnamon toast was one of the wonderful American things my kids used to ammaze there French friends with - home made chocolate chip cookies also never ceased to amaze them.

Great toast...I think I can almost smell it. I just joined EDM this month and have as yet to start the weekly challenges. Don't know if I should start with #1 and continue on or just jump around. Either way it's time to play. Deborah

I am always astonished when someone takes a visually nothing sort of subject and does something wondrous. Lovely work.
