It is hard to keep a loaf of bread in this house. It is literally gone before I can put the plastic tab back on. I am thrilled when our favorite brand has a “Buy 1 get 1 FREE” deal. As the boys get older, I might consider making our own bread. We’ll see. For now, I keep loaves stocked in our freezer in the basement.

I’ll never forget the stares and comments that were divvied out while I was helping my mother with groceries when I was a teenager. Heads would turn as we loaded up a grocery cart-and-a-half (sometimes two) of food for the week to feed our family of seven (two adults and five teens). And these were the days before Maryland had an abundance of warehouse clubs to shop in bulk.

  1. Thanks, Inge. I used to buy cracked wheat bread, but I can't find it now. However, there are so many healthy breads available. Times have changed, now Dad and I often keep our bread in the 'fridge so keep if from going moldy. I am glad you are enjoying this time when the food moves quickly and the memories grow. Your blog will help you remember many little you put it. Love, Mom


Go ahead and leave a word or two. I would love to hear from ya!
