The challenge is to look at BREAD in a new way.Create as much "value" as possiblestarting with ONE LOAF OF BREAD.
In order to create value, we first analyzed what does VALUE mean?According to the Oxford Dictionaries (1)Definition of valuenoun1 [mass noun] the regard that something is held to deserve; the importance, worth, or usefulness ofsomething:your support is of great valuethe material or monetary worth of something:prints seldom rise in value[count noun]:equipment is includedup to a total value of £500the worth of something compared to the price paid or asked for it:at £12.50 the book is good value[countnoun]: North Americanthe wine represents a good value for $17.952 (values) principles or standards of behaviour; one’s judgement of what is important in life:they internalizetheir parents rules and values3the numerical amount denoted by an algebraic term; a magnitude, quantity, or number:the mean value of x4 Music the relative duration of the sound signified by a note.5 Linguistics the meaning of a word or other linguistic unit.6the relative degree of lightness or darkness of a particular colour:the artist has used adjacent colour valuesas the landscape recedesverb (values, valuing, valued)[with object]1estimate the monetary worth of:his estate was valued at £45,0002consider (someone or something) to be important or beneficial; have a high opinion of:shehad come to value her privacy We chose to take this last interpretation of “value” in order to reframe the challenge, instead of taking the most common solution that would reffer to monetary value.
SO, WE COULD CONSIDER SOMETHING TO BE IMPORTANT OR BENEFICIAL, IN RELATION TO THE MULTIPLE USES YOU CAN GIVE TO THAT THING…Common uses given to BREAD (4) (2) (3) (7) (6) (5)
Yet, there ore other least obvious edible uses for BREAD… (8) (9) (10) (11)
Most amazingly, there are other NON edible uses for BREAD! (12)• Remove scorched taste from rice!! Did you leave the rice cooking too long and let it get burned? To get rid of the scorched taste, place a slice of white bread on top of the rice while it’s still hot. Replace the pot lid and wait several minutes. When you remove the bread, the burned taste should be gone.• Soften up hard marshmallows: You reach for your bag of marshmallows only to discover that they’ve gone stale. Put a couple of slices of fresh bread in the bag and seal it shut (you may want to transfer the marsh-mallows to a self-sealing plastic bag). Leave it alone for a couple of days. When you reopen the bag, your marshmallows should taste as good as new.• Absorb vegetable odors: Love cabbage or broccoli, but hate the smell while it’s cooking? Try putting a piece of white bread on top of the pot when cooking up a batch of “smelly” vegetables. It will absorb most of the odor.• Soak up grease and stop flare-ups: To paraphrase a famous bear: Only you can prevent grease fires. One of the best ways to prevent a grease flare-up when broiling meat is to place a couple of slices of white bread in your drip pan to absorb the grease. It will also cut down on the amount of smoke produced.• Pick up glass fragments: Picking up the large pieces of a broken glass or dish is usually easy enough, but getting up those tiny slivers can be a real pain (figuratively if not literally). The easiest way to make sure you don’t miss any is to press a slice of bread over the area. Just be careful not to prick yourself when you toss the bread into the garbage.• Dust oil paintings: You wouldn’t want to try this with an original Renoir, or with any museum-quality painting for that matter, but you can clean off everyday dust and grime that collects on an oil painting by gently rubbing the surface with a piece of white bread.
