I’ve been wasteful with my bread lately. Lately as in since my last nephew moved out. I’m stuck on the idea that I need to make the big loaf of my bread machine because I am a big person, my mom is a bit fluffy as well and, well, wheat bread is good for you. Right? So, I’m rethinking my life and trying new ways to become healthy and then again, healthier. So, here’s my thinking. Instead of the two pound loaf that is impossible to cut to a normal size sandwich without loosing all the yummy crust I’m going to make 1 pound loaf. I should be able to cut from the top down to the bottom and have normal sized slices to become a normal sized person.
I’ve considered getting a bread machine (Frankie and Charlie) as a blessing, and having the bread crest the pan was always fun to watch but baking more bread than I need is wasteful, harmful and in some ways an affront to the blessings of having a store of the needful things in your life. We’re to gather food in, and use that food wisely not use it to amuse ourselves with. So, from now on my recipes will be for the smaller loaves. I will try to do the math for the larger loaves but always, always verify when it comes to math and me. I’m a writer, not a calculator.
