you know flour makes bread right?

May 24th, 2007 at 07:35 pm

We are out of bread..we are out of a lot of things (husband still not supposed to drive), but bread being the big end of world item (at the moment)

So today I wake up dreading figuring out lunch and snack with no bread (it is a fall back, when done with what I cook you can have bread if you are still hungry, and one or the other of my two older kids is always still hungry)

Then for lunch I contemplated the lack of leftovers.....what on earth was I going to cook? I came up with eggs, GMC read about poached eggs and wanted to know what they tasted like, so I hunted up directions and made some, now eggs for my husband belong with I thought he would have to suffer...until I remembered, bread is made from flour, which I have!

Well real bread would take to long for lunchtime (that was fast approaching) but biscuits, which I make rather well and quite frequently were simple quick and easy (5,4,3,2,1 recipe).

Tonight for bedtime snack there will be plenty of leftover biscuits to drown in strawberry juice (after thawing the berries there is always lots of juice, son loves strawberry, daughter loves blueberry, youngest loves either)

Why oh why does it take such an effort for me to come up with something out of the norm? Considering how much flour is int he house, and how often I tend to bake you would assume making bread to be the first thought when I run out, but nope, bread is store bought (I am good at biscuits, not bread)so I think buy buy buy when we run out...

    LOL. Well, if someone ever gives you a bread machine you could become "really good" at making bread, too. I was going through this the other day, I didn't want to make a special trip to the bread outlet to get the 100% organic whole wheat bread we eat because it was ridiculous to spend that much in gasoline to get there.

    I was totally forgetting the fact that I have all the ingredients for making 100% organic whole wheat bread in my baking cupboard, and a bread machine. And the fact that up until 2 or 3 months ago, I was baking bread at least every other day. Maybe its just getting out of the habit.

    But good on you for making biscuits. I probably would have just made pancakes myself, which I am good at. Never actually tried biscuits at home, though I know how to make them. Since it was my job for five years to make the biscuits at the restaurant I used to work at every morning, and they were easy, light and fluffy and wonderful, you'd think I would. But pancakes make a good bread subsititue, using jelly or peanut butter instead of syrup. With the added benefit that you can roll it into a burrito and its portable food.

    heh, I often wonder..I didn't like the bread machine bread when I was little...but maybe they are better now?

    as to pancakes..I offered, husband rejected, so switched to biscuits.

    Glad to know I am not the only one frequently forgetting the non store options!

    Bread machines are way better now. But also you can just do the dough in them and then put them in pans for the final rise and bake them in the oven. Mixing the dough in the machine is the major time saver.
