For Stream of Consciousness Saturday on lindaghill.com – excuse me while I go pop some cinnamon rolls into the oven.

Your Friday prompt for Stream of Consciousness Saturday is “dough/d’oh.” Use one, use both, use ’em any way you like. Enjoy!

Welcome Home

She sat in grandmother’s kitchen, watching as the old woman kneaded the dough with strong sure hands. Breaking off bits to form into knots and braids. There are no words to describe the smell of an old time kitchen. The fermenting scent of yeast mingled with warmth from the old oven. Rich cinnamon and sweet vanilla consort with the tang of nutmeg and allspice and warm butter lays over it all with an emollient intoxication.

She gazed out the window at the frosted prairie grass glistening in the winter sun. Small beads of condensation rolling down the window while the wind in the winter-barren trees sang it’s song with wild abandon and the whole world whispered “welcome home.”

      1. Since quitting gluten I haven’t looked at any supposedly lookalikes. Just kick the whole shebang. And I’ve now reduced all carbs to micro-level. I don’t lose weight, that was done when I first went on Paleo, but I do keep the blood-sugar levels done low, and have bundles of energy.

      2. That is awesome! So Paleo’s working for the blood sugar? Superhubs is diabetic and we’re having trouble controlling his #’s. He definitely does NOT need to lose weight. I’ll look into Paleo a bit more I think he might do better on it. Thanks so much for your input. 🙂
