Today November 17th is National Homemade Bread Day.
Do you ever make homemade bread?
What kind of bread is your favorite (out of regular breads and sweet breads included?)
I make homemade bread every few days, I started a few months ago as a way to save money and cut back on processed food. Now if something happens and I have to buy store bought my husband and kids complain because it doesn't taste good. I usually make whole wheat or white
My mom use to make homemade white bread all the time when I was a kid, we always loved to get a slice when still warm with butter and jelly on it.
When the 5 kids were growing up I them different sweet breads sometimes and we also made fried bread which we all loved too.
My two favorite sweetbreads are banana and then pumpkin but very very favorite is the kind my mom use to make banana bread with m&ms in it. MMMMM
I found this online to share with you.
