My Bread Secret

“My bread secret is that the baguettes at Whole Foods are $1.50 and are further discounted to $1.40 if you don’t ask for a bag! Caveat: They’re not the best baguettes in the entire world. Perfect for cheese plates and dinner parties and sandwiches, but not eat-half-while-walking-home worthy.” — Nozlee Samadzadeh

My bread secret is that I am planning on divorcing my bread. (Don’t tell my bread)

My bread secret is that I’ve been cheating on Trader Joe’s Middle Eastern Flatbread with discounted Orowheat Sandwich Thins. Not because they’re better, just because the regular store is closer. (Sorry, baby)

My bread secret is to stop going to Montreal for bagels and wait for the bagels to come to me (via family visiting from Montreal).

My bread secret is that even though almost everything else I put into my body is either deep-fried or shelf-stable reconstituted flavored corn byproducts, I will pay $5 for a loaf of really good bread from the farmer’s market. I find pre-sliced bread in a bag really gross. It’s an incredibly out-of-character bit of snobbery.

@jfruh Me too! I am so NOT snobby about food, I enjoy a wide variety of crap, but I cannot eat bagged, sliced bread, it has always weirded me out. MAYBE if someone toasts it and puts somthing tasty on it, but untoasted? No way!

My bread secret is that I have a breadmaker and a spouse who is unhealthily devoted to its continued operation. (The breadmaker paid for itself after six weeks, that’s how much bread he ingests.)

My bread secret is that my mom can’t eat wheat, so my brother and I get all the bread (and biscuits) to ourselves. But my mom put together the best bread and butter (spoiled!).

My bread secret is that my husband can’t eat wheat so I have (on more than one occasion) bought a baguette and eaten it in my car (he says I can eat whatever I want around him but I just don’t think that’d be fair, also embarassed that I can eat a whole baguette in a sitting.)

Recently we found a pretty good gluten-free baguette and the brand is Against the Grain which always makes me laugh!

My bread secret is that even though I lived in NYC for 10 years, I will buy Thomas’s mini “bagels” when they are buy one get one free at the supermarket.

My bread secret is the cafe in my neighborhood that sells a plate of French toast made from baguettes for less than $5. With syrup and fresh fruit! (It’s Le Bon Cafe, and it’s by the Library of Congress.) (I suck at keeping secrets.)

My bread secret is that I can, and have, eaten just bread for dinner.

My bread secret is that when it’s sunny I go up to the bar at Ray’s and get a bowl of Little Skookum Inlet Manila Clams steamed in beer and dill butter and then order extra bread and sop up all the juice in the bottom of the clam bowl and get drunk while looking at the Puget Sound.

My bread secret is that I will put anything on bread… strawberry cream cheese, speculoos, Nutella, whatever, and eat it.
