Giving Away Freshly Baked Bread
Giving away bread...or spreadin' the love, 1 loaf at a time.
I built a wood fired oven in the backyard last summer and quickly discovered I could bake more bread than I could eat! This was especially true after buying a used 20 qt. Hobart mixer.
So what to do?
Give it away!
I set a goal to give away 1000 loaves of bread this year and as of this writing, 7/21/09 I'm on track with over 600 loaves given.
A few days ago a firetruck pulled up investigating a complaint of smoke. So I showed them the oven and they said, "Cool!"
Wow, this gave me a great idea - to visit all the fire stations with a delivery of freshly baked bread! In fact I just came back from delivering to the 2nd station near my house. You can bet the firemen loved it and they are chowing down right now on a few of the 15 loaves of football shaped 2 pound "half whole wheat" loaves I just delivered.
If you have a story of giving away bread let's hear it...and I'll keep you posted on my goal of giving away 1000 loaves in 2009.
