Have we found out what nefarious uses the young people have for yeast yet? I'm dying of curiosity on this one.
Yesterday, I saw the woman, who made the statement, sitting in a small, snow bank on her bicycle, asking people passing by to help her get out. She was sitting on the bike, mind you, and could easily have dismounted and pulled the bike out. I think that answers the question.
BTW, bread is very, very good . . . I had to cook it a bit longer than the recipe called for, but still wonderful.
