Life Song of the Road

#SoCS March 30/19



Your Friday prompt for Stream of Consciousness Saturday is “dough/d’oh.” Use one, use both, use ’em any way you like. Enjoy!

The word ‘dough’ immediately brought to mind my experiments in making bread. We have always eaten bread and we like it but we get from the bakery. Some time ago I was reading in a cookery site that making bread does not mean that we have to knead and knead for a long time. That is what I had read in books earlier. I read the recipes eagerly and thought it would not be all that difficult. Those breads were called rustic breads. According to the first recipe I had to mix the wheat flour, yeast, salt and make a sticky dough, keep it in a bowl, cover it with a cotton cloth overnight. The next morning I was to knead the dough and keep it covered for two hours and then bake it. This rustic bread was a little hard but we liked the taste. I kept looking for more recipes and tried them two times and we liked them too. Then I came across this cookery site called http://www.vegrecipesofindia. The recipe given was the best. I used active yeast, mixed it in warm water and added little sugar. After fifteen minutes it had risen and then followed the recipe. Two hours after making the dough and it had risen, I took it out of the bowl, kneaded it a little and kept it in a greased loaf pan. After 45 minutes it had risen some more. I then baked it. We loved it and also the fragrance of bread being baked 😊 .


#SoCS March 30/19

Here are the rules:

1. Your post must be stream of consciousness writing, meaning no editing (typos can be fixed), and minimal planning on what you’re going to write.

2. Your post can be as long or as short as you want it to be. One sentence – one thousand words. Fact, fiction, poetry – it doesn’t matter. Just let the words carry you along until you’re ready to stop.

3. I will post the prompt here on my blog every Friday, along with a reminder for you to join in. The prompt will be one random thing, but it will not be a subject. For instance, I will not say “Write about dogs”; the prompt will be more like, “Make your first sentence a question,” “Begin with the word ‘The,’” or will simply be a single word to get you started.

4. Ping back! It’s important, so that I and other people can come and read your post! For example, in your post you can write “This post is part of SoCS:” and then copy and paste the URL found in your address bar at the top of this post into yours.  Your link will show up in my comments for everyone to see. The most recent pingbacks will be found at the top. NOTE: Pingbacks only work from WordPress sites. If you’re self-hosted or are participating from another host, such as Blogger, please leave a link to your post in the comments below.

5. Read at least one other person’s blog who has linked back their post. Even better, read all of them! If you’re the first person to link back, you can check back later or go to the previous week by following my category, “Stream of Consciousness Saturday,” which you’ll find below the “Like” button on my post.

6. Copy and paste the rules (if you’d like to) in your post. The more people who join in, the more new bloggers you’ll meet and the bigger your community will get!

7. As a suggestion, tag your post “SoCS” and/or “#SoCS” for more exposure and more views.

8. Have fun!
