Moving can be pretty stressful, there’s so much to arrange and pack. And once all the boxes are unloaded at your new place…then you have to unpack it all! So yes, needless to say my weekend was kind of crazy!
My Dutch friend Gloria came to visit last night and when she walked in, she said, “oh my god, it smells amazing in here!!”, thinking it was some kind of incense. I smiled and told her it was the smell of the bread I had just baked. Gloria could hardly believe I managed to bake amidst all the chaos
Besides the fact that freshly baked bread makes me happy, I had another good reason to bake my own. I went to the supermarket around the corner to get some bread and was shocked when I read the label.
First of all I couldn’t believe the amount of ingredients, it must have been close to 50! Second, the bread contained numerous preservatives, food coloring and the infamous high fructose corn syrup. Some ingredients I can hardly pronounce and I certainly dont want them in my body!
You need about 10 ingredients to bake bread. So next time you’re buying bread make sure you check the label! Look for whole wheat flour, water, honey, yeast, salt, soybean oil…you know… stuff you can pronounce! 😉
