Taming the Deadly Loaf #food

Yesterday on Fatal Foodies, I posted about some rye bread I made that is delicious untoasted and rougher than a scouring pad when toasted. Charlie likes to microwave his to warm it up, but I tried something else.

See, this rye has molasses and brown sugar in it, and it tastes, to me, like old fashioned ginger bread (as opposed to gingerbread) without the ginger in.

So I put some ginger in. I buttered the bread on both sides and put it on foil in the toaster oven. I mixed powdered ginger and sugar and sprinkled it LIBERALLY on the top. Then I broiled it until the sugar melted, bubbled, and browned.RyeAndGingerThe bread was moist, tender, and luscious, and the sugar topping was crispy and both spicy and sweet.

So an unhappy turned into a happy. Always a good thing.

A WRITING PROMPT FOR YOU: Write about an unhappy that turns into a happy.




I was born in Louisville, Kentucky, but now live in the woods in southern Indiana. Though I only write fiction, I love to read non-fiction. The more I learn about this world, the more fantastic I see it is.

    It’s snowing books!! Yay! That special time of year!

    I’m always hoping for something bad to turn into good. Evidence to the contrary, it seems I may be an optimist. Or dementedly unable to face facts. On of those.
