Bread
Posted On 10/08/2018 09:32:14 by Altara33606

When I was growing up, we only ate white bread.  That was before 1960, so I really don't know if there were other kinds available or not.


One thing I remember:  Mom worked for Wonder Bread one year, giving out samples.   She brought home outdated mini-loaves of Wonder Bread. We kids thought that was so neat!  We'd have 'camping' nights in the backyard, with the bread and juice as our supplies.  My sister was much younger, so she didn't join my brother and me. But the two of us had great times! 


Once I'd grown up, I 'heard' that wheat bread was better for you. So my husband and I started eating wheat bread instead of white. It wasn't till much later that I branched out to try Rye bread.  That's now my favorite. Sadly, it's too 'big' for my toaster, so I have to flip it over to make sure the other end is toasted!  We do still occasionally have wheat bread as well.  But mostly, we get rye. Or white--if we are desperate for bread & just go across the street to Casey's. Often, white is all they have.


Now, of course, the 'in' thing is making your own bread.  Reminds me of Grandma!  Our daughter got us a bread machine a couple of years ago for Christmas. Yes, it's delicious--but at this point, we are limiting our  intake of bread. And to be honest, we just don't have the 'gumption' to go to all that trouble!

I grew up on 'homemade' bread that my mother made every Friday so that we would have fresh bread to serve to Sunday guests. I tried to follow her example for many years but finally gave in to the local bakery. Both my husband and I are still avid bread eaters but we always look for the darkest bread available like black Russian, rye, or multigrain. White bread is off our list of preferences now.
