Easy Little Bread
It's not pretty. But it's oddly tasty. Odd because even when cooked through, it tastes slightly "doughy" to me. And I know isn't going to sound very appetizing, but it almost smells like Play-Doh to me. And I like it.
And just FYI, I was NOT one of those kids who ate Play-Doh. But I always loved to open up the container and smell it. Or the smell in the room as I pressed little strands of noodles or squiggles or that slide that looked like an I-beam of my Play-Doh Fun Factory.
And for the record, I actually DID want to lick that dough. Not eat it, really. But I couldn't resist the salt-lick factor.
Anyhoo...easy little bread. Sort of salty. Sort of doughy. Oddly good. Odd Little Easy Bread?
