I think I have solved the "I Don't Like Bread" problem

I bought a loaf of artisan white bread. It almost resembles a soft loaf of italian bread. Unfortunately, I bought it last Monday and just opened it today. It has just started to go stale. I took one slice, cut it in half and made a cold cut sandwich. Nope, didn't like it. So I took a mouthful of coffee to wash it down. It brought back a childhood memory.

My mother would make me a cup of tea with milk and sugar, butter a stale piece of Italian bread and I would dunk it in the tea. I could go through a whole loaf of bread doing that. Or until the cup of tea ran out. So for the rest of the loaf, I will be repeating what my mother used to do for me. YUM!

I love bread--but I don't like what bread does to me, so I rarely eat bread--1x/month, maybe.

Bread makes me cramp up like crazy! I prefer eating rye bread, doesn't affect my IBS too badly and I prefer the taste. I still love bread though.

It's intimate relations V, PG 13

I love bread but I suffer so much when I eat it! Same thing with pies and pastries. It sucks!

that gives yeast infections a whole new meaning, vit.


but i'm with ya on being a lover of bread. my wife and i are to bread what oenophiles are to wine. we'll smell it, and squeeze it, and thump a loaf of bread to hear it drum to tell how good it is before buying.

I hardly eat bread anymore. It does get stale. When I buy a loaf, i immediately divide it and freeze half.

Uses for bread--

Toast, add peanut butter. Cut slices into pieces. Share it with the squirrels. Watch their cheeks get full.

If it gets too stale, make bread cubes. Oven dry. Feed it to the chipmonks.

If it gets really really stale and dry, make breadcrumbs. Feed the crumbs to the birds.

Buy a fresh loaf.

This loaf will be going to the birds. With this storm, their food is buried under 29+ inches of snow. But first it has to stop snowing. With gusts of 76 mph I doubt I will be going out for the sole purpose of feeding the birds. I don't even have a window in a position that I can toss it to them. At least I won't feel that I wasted money on something I don't like.

BTW, Did you know that if you dye the bread blue or red, the birds will think the pieces are berries. And it helps to make the bread stand out from the white of the snow.
