Saturday Snippets…17th September 2022…Today’s one-word prompt is “Bread”

Good morning and welcome to Saturday Snippets where my muse struts her stuff and gives me a word…a one-word prompt after last week’s prompt this one was fairly easy however I still have no clues as to where she gets the ideas for my promt from but I like to keep the old grey matter working but hey muse thank you for giving me a break this week… come with me and see just what I have found …

Lamb’s Bread, also known as “Lamb’s Breath,” is a Sativa marijuana strain of unknown genetic origin, with uniquely-shaped, light green buds that resemble balls of sheep’s wool. The effects of this strain are believed to be energetic and uplifting…

If you remember back to fairy tales and Hansel and Gretel then you will know that they followed a trail of breadcrumbs…breadcrumbs also featured in “The National Ballet of Canada’s production of Sleeping Beauty”…

The Third Fairy or as she was also known “The Breadcrumb Fairy”

Did you know?…did you wonder why there was an image in the header image?…

Bread and Circuses…or bread and games comes from the Latin “Panem et Circenses”…is bread and circuses: sustenance and entertainment provided by government to appease public discontent.

This is attributed to Juvenal…a Roman Poet and is commonly used in a cultural, particularly political context.

Bread Fruit…is a species of flowering tree in the mulberry and jackfruit family …breadfruit looks very similar on the outside to my Jackfruit…However the similarity ends there as the strongest breadfruit taste correlation is to freshly-baked bread however when cooked, the starch-rich breadfruit can also taste similar to potatoes, though riper varieties taste sweeter because the starch converts to sugar…a staple in South Pacific and other tropics it is rarely eaten raw but either roasted, boiled, baked, fried or dried and ground into flour…

In the South Seas cloth is made from the fibrous inner bark of the breadfruit tree…the wood is used for canoes and furniture…it has milky sap like my jackfruit that is used for glue if its like the jackfruit that milky sap is very, very sticky and if you are cutting a breadfruit oil your knife as trust me the sap sticks to everything…

Some of you may wonder why a hymn ..Put simply I used to be a choir girl…and this was one of my favourites…

Bread… almost 900,000 tonnes of bread is wasted annually – that’s around 24 million slices every day…That is horrific!…

I can honestly say that no bread is ever wasted in my house…any odds of bread I make into breadcrumbs or freeze the ends of the load for garlic bread and slices I freeze until I have enough to make bread pudding or bread and butter pudding

Veggie Bread…Do you eat veggie bread? …

Bread is a staple food in a great number of the world’s regions, and “the staff of life” is widely regarded as unbeatable… however with a rising number of health-conscious people actively trying to reduce their bread intake…how does veggie bread compare to the bread I and many others bake…Does it make a good sandwich or toast or just warm from the oven as a slice of bread with butter?

I have looked at recipes made with chickpea flour or made with broccoli and cheese to bind the broccoli together..but neither is bread as I know it and would it make good breadcrumbs for a bread sauce or a treacle tart…If anyone would like to do a post on veggie bread then I am happy to promote it as long as you have tried and tested the recipe…I am open to being converted but I am also very sceptical as to whether it can do everything I currently make with leftover bread…A challenge for someone????

Thank you for joining me today for Saturday Snippets as always I look forward to your comments …I hope you have an enjoyable weekend xx

    Bread is universal, across all cultures, countries, and also generations. The youngest of children begin to eat bread, and the oldest of people have bread as their staple. How many other foods do so much for all people? I did not know that the third fairy in Sleeping Beauty was the Breadcrumb Fairy. This was wonderful, Carol. Thank you.

    I love bread in most forms including the music of Bread and I have hung on to their original tapes I bought in the 1970s and I am sure are well warped now…thanks goodness for digital.. I have toast with just butter for breakfast and I look forward to it every day… and I think I might skip the Lamb’s Bread lol.. not sure I can handle ‘uplifting energy’ at the moment…♥

    Bread, the group, will always have special meeting for me. Their song, “If”, was our wedding song.

    And I love just about every kind of bread, although I’ve never heard of veggie bread. Not so sure about that one 🙂

      Awww great choice for wedding music, Jim…It seems no one is admitting to being a veggie bread fan although I’m not surprised…lol…some things like bread are better left as they have always been warm and crusty from the oven…:) x

    I have almost no bread waste. I buy uncut Farmhouse loaves, and Julie has sliced multiseed. Any that goes stale is dampened down and put out for the birds. They always clear it all.
    Best wishes, Pete. x

    Like others, I’m not convinced by veggie bread! To me it seems as much like bread as do all those things calling themselves ‘tea’ which are nothing like the real thing. Nice to hear Bread again, and that was one of my favourite hymns as a kid, even though I’m not a Welsh rugby fan 😊 xx

      Neither am I Clive and no one has accepted the challenge either…so that speaks volumes as for tea I do love camomile and Oolong taking nothing away from the tea hubby loves it’s just my favoured choice…Musically Bread needed an outing and I’m not a Welsh Rugby fan either but I love the hymn xx…Have a great weekend, Clive 🙂 xx

        Glad to hear that, as it sounds like an abomination! As for tea, I’m old school: if it doesn’t contain tea leaves or bags, it isn’t tea! Enjoy the rest of your weekend too 😊 xx

        That’s fine. It’s all the ones like mint that to me just aren’t tea – they are infusions. As you say, each to their own, but just a splash of milk, please 😉 x

      Me too. Robbie why do you think I am throwing it open as although I have an open mind I would take some convincing that anything would come near homemade bread if it was made using veggies and no flour …

      Me too. Liz that’s why I’ve issued a challenge not that anyone’s accepted yet the opinion so far is for “real bread”…and the band Bread I thought it was time they had an airing 🙂
