I've mentioned in numerous previous posts that although I was lucky to be born in the great state of Kentucky, I was mostly raised across the Ohio River in Cincinnati. When I lived there the majority of the population was of German and Irish heritage, and the German-American cuisine is still my favorite.
Lately I have been craving some good German rye bread, and have been surprised that there really isn't much of it on the grocers' shelves. Today I bought a loaf of Orowheat dark rye and on upacking the grocery bag I opened the loaf and slathered a slice with butter. I couldn't believe what a tasteless bread it is, and I don't know what to do with the remainder of the loaf. I am going to get out my old recipes, make a list of ingredients I will need, and make my own rye bread. I made some good bread, including rye and whole wheat, back in the 1970's and I hope I can do it again. In the meantime an internet search leads to a local German deli where I will try the bread plus other special German foods.
I'm getting drowsy as I usually do this time of afternoon. I don't know why I need a nap as I get a good night's sleep every night. But I won't fight it off!
RAIN, LOTS OF RAIN!!!
