The Unattainable Loaf
My sister in law makes the most delicious bread. A few weeks ago she brought it to a family gathering, then I had another piece at her house. For Jude's birthday, she brought us a whole loaf. I'm rationing it out. It's SO good.
I've been into bread making lately, so I was hopeful about re-creation.
Then she told me the terrible news. She uses a starter. Agh. Wouldn't you know it? I hate starters and starters hate me. I always have great intentions with things like that. And in the end, those good intentions just aren't enough.
I kill starters just like I kill plants.
If something can't talk to me (or in Jude's case, cry a bit), I forget that it needs food. And so, a starter would be just as hopeless in our household as a pet or a plant.
I guess I'll just have to invite myself over for bread at LA's house.
