SCHOLAR AND SCRIBE INTRO by WHYWHY
Tell my story...... Again?
Well, I have been on HIVE since early 2021, but it was a bit overwhelming, I did not really understand the concept as I was thinking it´s just another blogging site.
I was wrong and it took me a year to figure that out, but now I am back to let you I can really....write I guess?
You might have seen me around the SCHOLAR AND SCRIBE community. Over the last weeks, I have been publishing a nice little dark celestial tale there.

Lets Do Some Fiction and have a cookie
So where July´s Dreemport challenge was pulling me out of my comfort zone, this August challenge might fit me a bit better.
The only thing I now need to do is find the time to write.
Now some chocolate-loving person came up with the idea to introduce ourselves through our favorite dessert. This is a challenge as I have not been a fan of desserts since I grew up.
My favorite dessert after a really good meal would therefore be a cup of Columbian Coffee, grind those beans and let the steem press the taste into that cup. Serve it with a little milk and sugar and a home made ANZAC biscuit.
Now why those ANZAC biscuits, because it was the best cookie I ever had. They are not too hard to make and well they are said to last sometime.
I had never heard of them btw, until I hosted an Australian couple that made those great chewie oatmeal cookies with raisins. Raisins might have not been in the original recipe, but any cookie tastes better with raisins.
Now of course they told me the story behind the cookie. How wives and girlfriends would bake them for their men at the Western Front, because they didn´t spoil easily and it would give them a taste of home in the war.
Other research shows these cookies might have been a little too luxurious for your common soldier back in those days. It says that ANZAC biscuits were mainly consumed at galas, parades, and other public events at home, to raise funds for the war effort.
But that is a cookie with a history and I loved it, both the cookie and the tale.
Now bring on the fiction part and see how I do in this month's challenge because I have enough reality to last me a lifetime.
