Bread Baking Babes star in Non, Non, Nan(ette) — 8 Comments

  1. I remember the title No No Nanette! I might even have watched a hacked up TV version of the 1940 movie on Stardust Theatre back in my misspent youth, or Siesta Cinema if I was sick enough to stay home from school but not sick enough to have to stay in bed – although the posters on the movie pages don’t look at all familiar. (But whoever did the programming for Siesta Cinema LOVED Victor Mature, so maybe it was Siesta Cinema….)

    You really don’t need an official stamp at all to make this bread. It IS fun to have them though. Also, Tanna is right; if you use instant yeast, you can mix the dough at 1pm and bake the bread just in time for dinner.

    And. It’s a small point, but just so you know, I spell the bread “naan”, even when I use our Tartine bread dough to make it. (Where IS that rope-skipping sheep when I need it?)

    • Fixed !
      I think I must have seen it – one of those late night tv movie channels that I always stayed up for (when I wasn’t supposed to) and then fell asleep. But I’ve always remembered the name lol

  2. I love Doris Day. We got to hear the most wonderful symphonic arrangement of Tea for Two as an encore to a evening at the symphony some 17 years or so ago. I couldn’t tell you what the pieces were for the main program, but that Tea for Two was unforgettable. And some people missed out on it because they left right at the end! Definitely need to try more renditions of the non, I think I will always put flax seed in because I adore the flavor. But I definitely want to try both stamps and non stamp items for decorating!

    • I like flax seed – I add a bit to my yogurt most days. And Doris Day…. I’m sure I’ve seen all of her movies, They were always such fun! Memories…..

I love getting your comments; I read them all. I also answer them all - eventually.....
