Thinking of food today. Over the weekend, I had the opportunity to partake in the Kachemak Bay Writers’ Conference in Homer, Alaska. Thorough the many exercises and workshops I participated in, I thought of a story I had about babka. It is a bread typically served around Easter in many Eastern European countries. In my story, I was making the bread for the first time while I was pregnant with my daughter. Never would I imagine how much and how often you had to punch bread dough down before you could bake it. This act of repetitive punching and dough became a metaphor for a piece that I will write and finish later on.
Prompt for today: think about food. It could be a seasonal food, like babka, or any common dish. Think about preparing it. What would you prepare, and what parallels can be make from the preparation, or even eating, of this food or dish. Write about it.
