An experiment

I was thinking about how Cliff hates whole wheat bread, but loves home-made bread.  I was pondering all those unknown ingredients in store-bought bread.  I remembered how, for three or four years when my kids were small, I made all our bread (white), pre-sliced it, and put it in the freezer.  Of course, back then we used three or four loaves a week.  
So I figured I'd make a couple loaves of whole wheat bread and see if Cliff likes that any better than store-bought.  I pre-sliced it and put it in the freezer; we'll see how fresh it stays, keeping it like that.  Some weeks we barely use four slices of bread between the two of us, so it will be interesting to see how this turns out.  
Yes, that heel with a bite taken from it is mine.  That isn't Bonnie-butter; her butter is much brighter yellow.  I used what was sitting on the table because it was soft already.  
I'll keep you posted.

Donna, I think you will be happy. Like every other food, that which is made at home is SO much better than mass produced. I wish I could taste some or your home made butter. Sadly, I have no cow. Your bread looks great. Karen

Your bread looks wonderful. I bet your house smelled good too with that bread baking. I sure hope Cliff likes it. You'll have to let us know how it freezes.

Donna, please post your recipes! I keep looking for the RIGHT bread recipe. Oh, and, what did you use to cut that bread soooooo perfect? I am, in no way, that good at cutting my homemade bread that perfect. lol
