With everyone spending more time at home, many have taken this time to improve their cooking skills and try new recipes. Most notably, posting pictures of homemade bread has become a staple way for the unlikeable people from high school to show their dominance on Facebook. Inspired by the posts, novice cook Maria Hudson was set on giving bread a try so she could show “bitchy Camryn” that she could bake too. She was already thinking of a cute caption when she realized something horrible: she didn’t have any flour.
“I know times are tough for everyone right now, but this felt a little too far, ya know? It’s like the universe hates my Instagram followers or something. Why else would the powers that be deny them a picture of my focaccia?” said Hudson.
Deciding to persevere, Hudson scoured her apartment for something to use in place of flour. The home cook quickly pushed aside other gluten products like pasta and oats in favor of the staple in the back of her pantry.
“Rice Krispies were just, like, the obvious choice, right? I’m trying to make bread after all! I mean, I eat bread for breakfast! Do you know what else I eat for breakfast? Rice Krispies! Plus, everyone knows Rice Krispies are pretty much just really big flour pieces; it’s a no-brainer.”
Hudson proceeded to mash up the cereal and mix in the other ingredients, making what most would consider an inedible abomination.
“God, it feels so good to make food yourself, you know? Ugh, and to improvise something like the pro chefs do? I’m not saying I’m a genius or a hero or anything, but I will say that I’m not sure Bobby Flay would have thought of that.”
