I came home last night to still-warm gluten free bread. Mmmmmmmm. There is something very comforting about warm bread (even without the gluten).
After all the experimenting I've been doing with trying different gf breads from bakeries and stores, we have come the conclusion that it is very expensive to eat this way. And, in many cases, the stuff that we bought was just not very good (see April 11 post). Eating gf if you don't want grains is pretty darn cheap, but who wants to do that? It is not surprising that one of Alexander's words is "toast." He knows the good stuff!
When I got three loaves of my favorite gf bread (the flax seed bread from the Living Earth bakery) this week and brought them home, Geoff started thinking. Thus, the homemade bread. :) He actually went and got a bread machine yesterday to do this, realizing that we will probably very quickly make up the cost by not buying so much of the other breads. It turns out that even bread machines have gf settings these days! Luckily, I had stocked up on some gf flours and supplies when we went up to Bob's Red Mill store over the Easter weekend, so it looks like he didn't have to buy that many supplies.
