My Daily Bread
Tuesday, November 20, 2012
I've been baking sourdough bread for the past 10 years, almost every week and when I track my bread, it's always a guess.. Yesterday I got out my postage scale as I haven't got a proper food scale and one loaf came in at 2 pounds, so if I slice the bread into 32 slices, that would give me a one ounce slice... That's one skinny slice in my books!
Well, I had a good look at the loaf, and figured we are lucky to get 12-13 slices out of a loaf.. OH MY... all those calories!!!
For lunch today I cut a really thin slice and toasted it and it came out looking like melba toast and almost as crisp.. but did taste pretty good with peanut butter..
I haven't made the cinnamon buns for quite some time, and I wouldn't even want to figure out how many calories they are!
The nutrition tracker has ruined my days of cutting off the warm crust and slathering it with butter..
