The Perfect Food

11 Jan
Bacon. Do not argue with me. Good bacon is, in fact, PERFECT. My apologies to every Jew, everywhere (including my roommate) – your people missed the boat such salty, sweet (albeit unclean) goodness that my heart weeps for you every time I hear the word kosher. Though, my roommate is not actually kosher. She’s just nuts and dislikes the one food that can improve absolutely ANYTHING.

My Roommate: Bread.
Me: Oh… Okay. *stumbles back to bed*
She was making Irish Soda Bread, to be exact. This is such a foreign concept to me, to just make bread and batter from scratch. My Nana (grandmother) still always makes her doughs from scratch, but she’s old-school like that. Apparently, my roommate is also old-school like that.
