Do you ever day dream about the oddest things?
I do and in this case it’s food, probably because I’m hungry and can’t wait to eat.
I was thinking about how certain foods came into being, bread for example. Or any item like that, cake, biscuits etc.
I was pondering this today, who first invented these items and how? It’s quite a odd process when you think about it, you need to grind wheat into flour (doesn’t seem very intuitive to me!), mix it with water and maybe salt (another item that doesn’t exactly grow on trees), then cook for a reasonable amount of time.
Seems pretty difficult when I could just eat some berries, fruit or veg, or maybe even go out and find some meat or fish.
Beer is another one, its a fairly convoluted process to make beer and probably doesn’t happen by accident. I am constantly amazed by the smallest thoughts and food and drink are just one of them.
A final closing point: isn’t it funny that we, as a species, are lazy enough to have developed ‘easy peel’ oranges and seedless grapes.
