The Scone of Stone

Before I hit the “reblog” button, I have to note that dear blogo-friend Doug Thomas who had inspired me to create this post has recently lost one of his adorable kitty boys mentioned here. We all miss darling little Dougy and fell for Doug the human.

The Scone of Stone was stolen! It was stolen from the most unexpected and the best guarded place, The Dwarf Bread Museum. Of course, dwarf breads were substantially different from our breads; that is, different in substance. In fact, they included gravel as one of the main ingredients. According to the late Sir Terry Pratchett, whose whimsical imagination gave birth to Discworld and everything in it, “they were probably as edible now as they were on the day they were baked. “Forged” was a better term. Dwarf bread was made as a meal of last resort and also as a weapon and a currency” (The Fifth Elephant).

    Very funny and informative as usual. As a proud partial-Scot, I especially appreciated it. I’ll have to try that recipe when I’m not watching my calories so closely! Looks lovely, especially with the blueberries.

    (Spelt update: I made a spelt bun as a test. It rose up nice and light. Spouse also liked it. So I made a spelt loaf. Also delicious. And the spouse is even a fan. Spouse hates whole wheat but likes spelt’s nutty flavor. You’d be proud – it was basically a vegan recipe. Spelt, water, salt, and instant yeast. Turned out delicious.)

    1. Dear Michael, he is not the one counting – I am. He is eating what I put on the table in front of him. We are still working towards his goal, but results are amazing.
      Thank you for stopping by and commenting, dear friend. Have a wonderful weekend.

      1. Gosh, he is becoming a slave. Lol Honestly, i think its better others are caring for the best diet. A year ago i had put all sweeties far away. Enjoy your time too, Dolly!

      2. Dear Michael, it’s better to be a slave to food restrictions, than to insulin. A year ago he was diagnosed with a pre-diabetic condition and was warned that, unless he loses weight significantly and eliminates sugar from his diet completely, he will, G-d forbid, develop diabetes, like his mother, may she rest in peace. This diet is a life saver, literally.
        Have a great week, dear friend.

  7. But Sir Samuel Vimes solved the Mystery of the Scone of Stone. And all’s well that ends well.

    1. Interesting you should mention that. I am sure it was quite an education. I wonder what the kiddies thought of it.
