Anywho… this here pile-o-bread is the latest in the bread events – and it’s like 1/8 of the bread of that bread event day. It doesn’t happen all the time – in fact it’s been quite a while since we experienced a bread event, but when it does happen it’s sort of an off handed, sneak attack sort of thing. Our neighbor comes by or calls and says – “Oh by the way – do you want more bread than you can eat in a month…right now?” And being the weird losers that we are we always say “YES!!!!!” Actually it’s more like “uh, ok.” But thankfully, even though they had a minivan full of bread in their garage, we got away with just a smallish pile of bread this time. And there’s actually some decent stuff – black bread, wheat nut type, sourdough, two kinds of english muffins, whole wheat bagels, hamburg buns (that’s the Vermont spelling :), but then the obligatory super sweet muffins, doughnuts, french toast maple bread and some mexican pastry bread that I can’t think of the name. Oh and some squashed bread for the chickens. They love that stuff. The more squashed the better. Most of it fit in the freezer, thank god – cause during the Great Bread Event of 2009 all we could do is put it in the root cellar, where it slowly got moldy. Then I threw a bunch of it in the woods – actually I threw TONS of it in the woods – day after day after day – till the stupid neighbor dogs started rooting around and eating it.
Smooth move stupid neighbor dogs.
