We have recently decided to make fresh bread here daily (or as needed) instead of buying a loaf of Butternut or whatever’s on sale at the store. The bread we make is DELICIOUS and filling – and we make it 100% from scratch so I know there’s no added preservatives or artificial flavoring or any other garbage.
We figured making this switch would also save us quite a bit of money – as we were going through about two loaves a week of the store bought stuff. The only problem is…..this stuff is soo good that I think we’re eating even more of it than we would of the store stuff! My kids drag me into the kitchen several times a day and ask me to slice them a hunk of the fresh bread! Hubby’s just as bad! And I think we’re all looking for excuses to have sandwiches of some sort for every meal so we can eat it on our bread!
We’re experimenting with adding more and more whole wheat flour and less white flour to try and help it be a little healthier, but I’m starting to think our delicious new money saving habit might be pretty bad for the waistline!
