I now understand why parents cut the crust off the bread for their kids. It keeps the crust off the floor. But I still refuse to buy crustless bread.

My mother always tried to get me to eat it saying that the crust was sweeter than the bread- that the sugar rose to the surface while it was baking. heh.

See you soon, Kerri, Star, Pooch and I will be arriving in unison at about 7. :-)

That explains why Kij didn't arrive with Star, Pooch and Kerri as I was expecting. Glad everyone could make it, and I'll see you for shopping tomorrow after playgroup.

I'm not sure when I decided that I made the transition to actually liking bread with the crusts still on, but it was probably sometime in grade school. Now, the concept of crustless bread just seems wrong.

Hope you've had a great birthday, so far. Have fun at the dinner tonight!

You know what's really, really sad? While my mother never let us get away with NOT eating crust (we DID try, but it was hopeless) she had to give in and buy the 'glue' called 'bread' in grocery stores to make our sandwiches with, rather then the bread she made herself. She TOLD us and TOLD us we would regret not eating her bread while we could, but we didn't believe her.

You know, mommas tend to be right......

My fondest memories of bread as a kid were eating my Grandmother's homemade bread, frequently fresh from the oven. I don't recall ever not wanting to eat the crust. The store brand she bought (Spatz's) was also very course and like homemade. In fact, I think my preference for bread with flavor and texture comes from those memories. I just don't understand why anyone would eat the white 'bread' sold in grocery stores. You may as well make sandwiches with paper napkins 'cuz most white breads aren't good for anything other than keeping your fingers from touching the meat (or PB&J).
