If you noticed on my shopping list from Friday, I bought 4 loaves of bread. I do prefer baking bread, and wanted to put up this post to share the recipe I use most often, courtesy of Lisa. The problem I have with baking bread however, is we don’t eat it twice as fast. We eat it 20 times as fast. Slice after slice, straight from the oven. We can’t stop. Store bought bread on the other hand lasts through sandwiches, toast, and the occasional morning of french toast when I feel like cooking breakfast.
I was just reading through some old posts though and found a story from January that I forgot about.
Funny Story: I do have a friend who is attempting the leap to whole wheat. Her five year old refused toast this morning when she offered the whole wheat version. He claimed he had just eaten breakfast, a muffin and a yogurt. Upon further investigation she found out his “muffin” was actually a cupcake, and his “yogurt” was in fact a pudding! Ha, ha. I thought this was hilarious.
If you haven’t already made the switch from white to whole wheat bread, there is no reason to wait. I believe this is one of the easiest changes to make. My kids have always eaten whole wheat bread so it’s never been an issue in our home. One day however I decided to buy some white bread, and ketchup boy refused to try it. He said, “I only like the brown kind of bread.” I was surprised he liked wheat bread so well. I didn’t realize we had never bought white. However, they are still hesitant to try any multi grain type whole grain bread. You know, the kind with seeds and nuts. The flip flopper literally tried to pick out every single nut and seed, leaving the slice of bread a big holey mess. So I guess my tip of the day would have to be, start with smooth whole wheat bread and look for one high in fiber.
