After suffering from motion sickness while watching the Hunger Games in an XD theater I eagerly awaited the DVD version so I could watch it without turning green.

Because I like me a good theme I also baked this bread to go along with the event. It's hearty simplicity evoked my corresponding feelings about Katniss and her story. I'm grateful I can go to the store, buy an abundance of ingredients, ease-fully spend a morning kneading dough and waiting for it to rise, then later that evening watch a movie with no fear my kids are going to be entered into a reaping. I count my blessings that whatever complaints I have about politics, it isn't those particular to children being entered into an arena to fight to the death. Some may draw parallels to modern society, but not that, certainly not that.

 “Deep in the meadow, hidden far away
A cloak of leaves, a moonbeam ray
Forget your woes and let your troubles lay
And when it's morning again, they'll wash away
Here it's safe, here it's warm
Here the daisies guard you from every harm
Here your dreams are sweet and tomorrow brings them true
Here is the place where I love you.” 
-Suzanne Collins
