    Aye, the vernacular of food!

    I make bread, on occasion which translates to once every couple years -yours looks perfect, mine not always. Home bread reminds me of Anne Cooper and Niagara Falls. Anne was the neighbour lady next to us while I was growing up. She made bread every other day and I knew the days, thus I scored my share of the bounty. Hot, steamy slices, with butter she made from the one Guernsey cow in the little red , and honey I helped her husband remove from the hives that sat in the orchard separating their place from my parents’. Anne told stories, and it did not matter if the person in her kitchen was 10. Why Niagara Falls? May favourite story of her’s hear was the day she watched the scow become lodged on rocks above the falls and then the rescue of the men on board. Anne was a child then having grown up over looking the Niagara River. It was quite the story for a young boys imagination. The barge (scow ) is still there, and when I visit the Falls and see it, I think of Anne and her bread and visa versa with home bread.

    You make your own ice creme? Get out.

      What a fabulous story and I’m so glad that my bread reminded you of those experiences. I’m going to check out that link. 🙂
