One difference between a cook and a chef is that the cook mows the lawn, while the bread is rising.

you bet

the man who raised my father was a banker in Martinsville Indiana. After his wife died, my great aunt, he used to go to a restaurant on the town square every day and was served milk toast, don't remember what meal it was, but he ate it daily for 16 years, until he died.

Mom used to make it sometimes for us when we were sick. White toast with sweet butter and warm milk poured over it. That was in the 50's, and I never learned what it was supposed to do, other than comfort us, which it did. We always liked it.

Bread soaked in warm milk would draw out puss and impurities, but it doesn't work today because both products have changed how they are made.
Support bacteria. It's the only culture some people have.

I had never heard of it until I met my honey. He made it for me one night after we were married when I was sick and I feel in love with him all over again! Dark toast, good butter, sugar and warm milk. How is that not going to make you feel better?

I have only heard of it when referring to a wimpish type person. Never realize it was actually something to eat!
