Thursday Inspiration - Bread

Oh I love this subject - homemade bread, fresh out of the oven bread, a hot slice of bread with butter, bread and jam - ummmm bread.

Our oldest daughter, following a family tradition - bread!!  She still loves a good sandwich.  Notice the "modern" high chair - a scooped, molded chair - nothing but the newest for our baby in 1966.

I love to bake bread - the smell of the yeast - the pans of bread rising

And hot bread - I can almost taste it

And nut breads - though they sometimes don't have nuts in them

Cranberry bread, banana bread, pumpkin bread - could I serve you a piece with a cup of tea?

And Bear Bread - A shelf fungus that grows on trees

Bread for a christmas party - sandwiches and all the fixin's

Come on in, help yourself.

Hi JoAnn
I've never made yeast breads, but many nut breads or tea loaves as I call them over the years.
I'd love to join you for tea and try one of your loaves.

Your daughter, as a child, is adorable!!!
Like her, I l o v e bread!!!
Coming home from school, my favorite snack was
bread and butter with a sprinkle of sugar on the top,
then folded in half! YuMMy!!!
(Do you remember when we all left the butter out
on the table and it was soft for spreading???)

I can almost smell those breads ((sigh)). Yum! Like Joann, I remember white bread with butter and sugar, a little taste of heaven. In those days it was Wonder Bread, "helps build strong bodies 9 ways!"

Your daughter looks so sweet in the high chair with the bread. She looks like she's enjoying it.

Mmm, such delicious looking breads. I cannot resist bread fresh from the oven. I always cut the heel off and slather it with butter. It the baker's tax, I tell my husband.

All your breads look delicious! There are so many varieties to keep life and the table, interesting!

Mmmmm! I can practically smell all those lovely loaves fresh from the oven! Your little baby girl is precious as can be and oh, I need to show this post to my children because they tease me about how I served them butter and sugar 'sandwiches'! They think I made that up, but now I can prove it was something many of us considered a treat! xx
