Bread Brain


We go through a lot of bread, and one of our favorites is focaccia. I’ve talked about it before, but here is a nice picture of what we had a few days ago. But what intrigues me about this picture is how close in size – almost exactly the same – the two pieces are.

After dinner, I needed to cut the remainder into two pieces so they would fit inside of the plastic bag, so out came the bread knife and the deed was done. I was totally amazed at the preciseness of the workings of the brain in this. I wasn’t particularly thinking about making the pieces the same size; I just wanted to cut what was left of the focaccia into two pieces.

How does one’s brain DO this sort of thing? It is a constant amazement to me.

      Oh, I’ll bet everyone has that sort of “measuring device” wired in. We need to be able to judge distances properly so we don’t fall off things, so this is probably just a smaller version of it. Even so, I was amazed when I stacked them up! ;->


  3. I gave enough cooking demos to know that not everybody has this kind of brain! πŸ˜‰

      What do you see, Ronit?

      I have a sample of only one; well two, because Gary is able to do the same thing. The same thing happens to me with timers. They frequently go off just as I reach to turn them off. Not always, but enough times that it is spooky. Except for the dryer timer, as I don’t really want it to go off because it is such an obnoxious sound. I almost NEVER catch that one! BBBRRRRTTTTTT! ACK!
