Re: Bread (and cheese)

Crumbs, hadn't thought about it, so I trolled through my wip:

Wed brought bread and cheese, potatoes and beans and some dried meat, though I was hopeful of snaring a rabbit or a roe deer before then.

"Ill put them under our sleeping rolls, I said. Well be as warm as newly-baked bread. (Heated Stones...)

We used crusty bread smeared with yellow butter to mop up the sauce.

The bread was crusty on the outside and soft on the inside, and it went well with the strong cheese.

There are loads more, as it seems to be an integral part of the diet in my world...

An interesting exercise - I only ever refer to it as 'bread' or 'crusty bread', which has made me think about it anew. Good one!

O mortal man who lives by bread,
What is it makes thy nose so red?
Thou silly fool who look'st so pale
'Tis drinking Sally Birkett's ale!

Re: Bread (and cheese)

OK, this sort of fits into my "short short?" blog http://www.sffchronicles.co.uk/forum...ort-short.html

Warm. After a second night in the open that was their first impression of the suttered, dark room. Then the smells. The irresistable (to two hungry stomaches that hadn't had anything but a few berries in days) odor of fresh baked bread, heavy and dark. Barley and rye mix with acorn flour and impregnate the cottage with the essence of 'nourishment', and from the spice mortar for grinding the accents for more luxury products; cinnamon, mace and the hallmark tang giving its name to the cottage.

Ginger.

‘One Mammoth Burger, with large fries and a chocolate shake. One Prime Evil Soup, with extra trilobites. And a small Snowball in Hell, with chocolate chilli sauce.’

Re: Bread (and cheese)

I based the idea on a popular chocolate biscuit that occasionally comes out in temporary "new and improved" flavours. I never would have thought of chocolate and chili if they hadn't come out with that flavour.

It seemed appropriate for a "Snowball in Hell" to be hot and cold.

Re: Bread (and cheese)

The rye bread was fresh from the baker's oven. Cal tore off the end and put it in his mouth. It was still warm and delicious--moist, chewy, slightly sour--he smiled as he savoured the taste, made even more enjoyable by the fact that the cereal had been grown in his fields. He broke off another piece.

'It is like eating clouds!' cried Eduardo, scowling through a slice of nine-seed granary bread they had found in a freezer at the dredger's bakery. 'This is not bread! I cannot taste the millstone!'

Re: Bread (and cheese)

I never would have said anything derogatory, to a new romantic interest, about the way she baked biscuits. ("Biscuits" are like "scones," Brits, but fluffier) She was trying to impress me, and I was only thinking about Mister-Smoothing my way her into her muffin.

But she brought it up: "My biscuits turned out kinda tough."

"Well, yeah, since you mention it," I replied glibly , bouncing one off of the ceiling, frightening the cat and knocking over a vase." The thing about biscuits is that they need to be served fresh from the oven. Re-heating them turns them to rocks. and.. um.. whole wheat flour... guaranteed disaster."

She laughed, threw a salvo of biscuits at each of the other dinner guests, and we went out for pizza.

(True story. She became the mother of my children. And I still bake better biscuits than anybody)
