Starving Artists Should Eat More Bread
One of my new roommates made a couple loaves of bread this week, and holy shit are they good. I’d like to say this has inspired me to get back into making bread (which I did for a while), but mostly it inspires me to keep her at home and force her to make more bread, because it’s better than mine.
But either way, people should eat more bread.
Blah blah blah Atkins carbs et cetera. Shut up. Here’s the thing about bread: bread is cheap.
Like, really cheap. A five pound bag of flour costs less than a Big Mac. You can make a lot of bread out of five pounds of flour. And yeah, it takes a couple hours, so there’s the “time cost” or whatever, but if you’re mostly living on bread you’re going to the store for staples what, every month or two? Savings in the long run.
Not that anyone should be living entirely on bread. I’m all for fresh fruits and vegetables and vitamins and all that. But you can do a lot of your daily filling-up for pennies on the dollar if you have a roommate who makes fresh bread.
Or I guess in a pinch you could make it yourself. Come to think of it, I’m filling up for free, since she used her own flour and yeast and so on. But she can dip into mine any time (and I think knows that), so I’m going to hope we’re good on that front.
Maybe I’ll make her some bread this weekend.
Seriously, though, guys, this shit is delicious. Wish y’all were here.
