Sourdough or.. sourdoe? 8-)

Cute pic Zass! I saw it last night on my phone and couldn't make out the bread, just thought it was a goofy picture of your buns. Logged onto my computer, "Ah... I see now..." lol!

I couldn't help it. People wanting to sound all smart asking about "inbreading" crack me up every time..

Me: "Sure, I have rabbits "in-breading," about once a week. They're excellent with thai chili sauce."

Each time I see "I bread my rabbits" or anything of the such my brain thinks of two loves of bread humping until the top loaf falls off.

:coffee-screen:

Yup, I'm also very particular about using correct grammar (or terminology?)... but I agree with Zass, rabbits that are inbread are the tastiest! :D

OH! A fantastic suggestion! It made me hungry, so I did it. :twisted: This is not from my herd but rather from a "Whoops!" litter between siblings another local raiser had and sold off, so this dish would be inbreds in-breads (with chili sauce and ranch).

Guilty party here..... after reading this, I am horribly embarrassed.. my spelling is pretty horrible, so I did try and look up the proper spelling for "bred" but kept getting bread... so figured it must be correct.... Now I'm wishing someone had told me I had "spinach in my teeth".... UUugugggg! :oops:

Sometimes it's hard to look up the spelling of a word when there are two or more easily-confused similar words. Dictionary.com is one way to check . . . they list "can be confused" words, like this:
Can be confused
bread, bred.


Here's the complete listing for bread:
http://www.dictionary.com/browse/bread

Another way to check is to type bread or bred into google. You'll get hits for grammar sites that will guide you.

I blame the Ontario Ministry of Education. Along about 30-35 years ago they cut formal grammar and spelling from the primary school curriculum, believing that "personal expression" suffered if children were forced to learn the basics. Teachers could only supply "bandaid treatment" - on the spot correction. (The terms I have used may not be the PC terms used at the time . . . It was a long time ago.) But what a disaster! How can personal expression thrive if you are making bricks without straw?

So, Tricia, don't feel embarrassed. Blame the government and their infinite "wisdom". :grit:

That might be a good explanation for Ontario, but it doesn't explain why we can't spell here in the US!!

Actually, my own generation was the one where they experimentally removed phonics from the curriculum. Instead they tried to get us to memorize how to spell every word in the English language.
Needless to say, that didn't work either. :lol:
