This was an idea that really grabbed me -- it's in Teresa's blog post on world building here, she said: If characters are invited into a cottage for a meal and the cottagers offer “goat cheese and a coarse brown bread sprinkled with flaxseed” -- rather than simply “bread and cheese” -- not only does it create a more complete picture of the meal, but it suggests herds of goats and fields of flax growing nearby. Reading that made me think. I hadn't thought much about food, so I wondered what bread the character in my wip might eat. I decided on this for wip1: "Puffy and white, it was the subsidised bread everyone ate because it was so cheap. The fortifying minerals gave it a greyish tinge; I could taste the chemical edge, and it made me think of lab rats." What about the bread in your stories?
