Ever since I mentioned the “Three Dense Breads”…. the whole wheat community has been on my mind. First of all, and I can NOT stress this enough… wheat is good for you. The whole “Gluten-Free” trend is…. well, just that…. and in a couple short years the medical community will conduct a new and better study saying that it was all bunk. (Disclaimer: I am not a doctor. If you are currently on a Gluten-Free Diet, please remain so. But know that I feel terrible for you. If the current theories turn out to be true… then clearly, I am wrong….but I love white pasty foods.)
Okay, back to the Wheat Faction. Some things are easier to figure out than others…. We know that dense breads are completely “thick”; English Muffins are from England (I mean,who else says “nooks and crannies”?); French Toast…. from France of course. Jewish Rye Bread is…. well….. Jewish. Then it all starts to get a little gray. Let’s take for instance the “Everything Bagel.” Is it really all THAT, or just conceited? And how about “Wonder Bread”? A Super-Hero, or merely in “awe” of every little thing? The Club Cracker. Does that mean it is very rich and sails on yachts? Or is it in a gang… like with tattoos and such? So many to consider. The Sweet Roll. Corn Bread. Date Nut Bread. Don’t even get me started on Hot Cross Buns…..
