i wonder what a bread machine makes, then

The new build (updated code) for teh system goes up Saturday. So my week is hell. Also, I totally bombed that C++ test and brought my grade down to a B. Normally, this would be a time of eh because let me tell you, I was too tired to study much and was still fighting that damn homework assignment, but gah. But it totally is not, and it's because of fucking structures, which turned out to be like, a fourth of the questions despite the fact we only spent ten minutes on them in class.


However. Someone--I have no idea who now, but they totally livened up my life--emailed or commented to me on--wait for it--Bread Wank.


The sugar and eggs drag the recipes firmly out of the French Bread category (really the bread category in general). Microwaving the dough is also a prohibited act in real bread making.

Seen at OTF Wank at Journalfen, Stupid Free, SF Drama, and Domestic Snark.

Personal favorite:
But if you don't use fleur de sel (from Brittany, even two steps outside of the geographical area will ruin your recipe), fresh spring water from a freshly dug well in Nunavut, stone ground flour grown in the mountains surrounding Shangri-La, and yeast cultured from the oldest strain of yeast known in Scotland, your recipe is going to be an utter and complete failure and you might as well just never cook again, because you are a failure. In fact, you should never eat again because you aren't worthy.

As long as you don't call it bread, sure. Egg bread is fine, since that what it is. I'd rather call it Challah, since egg bread doesn't adequately describe what Challah is.

--shlake, link to thread, arguing that God did not know bread. With the daughter of a rabbi.

Also? Bread Laws (no, really) and Canned haggis. (kinda terrifying).
