Dough won't double

This batch of dough won't double.  I've let it sit all day and it just stays the same.  Perhaps I should through it in trash and try again.

Funny thing how money got the slang of dough or bread  I wonder how that got started. 

I love the dough bowl as well, a guy not so far a way from me in North Carolina made that one.  This is a link to his site

I just thought it would make a cute picture so I thought I would share and give someone a little chuckle.

It is my understanding that centuries ago, in Merry Olde Englande, meat was used as an item of barter.

Doe meat could be used... therefore... doe > dough.

In more recent times, the word "dough" came to be used as a monetary term in exchange for "bread."

"Eh, mon -- ya got any bread?"

...took the money thing further.  They traded deerskins as money.  Hence, we still have "bucks."  [buckskins]

So -- they got to... erm... eat their meat and have it, too [since they traded the skins].
