What did you grow up eating?
Happy Fall, everyone (or at least, everyone in the Northern Hemisphere),
This idea just popped into my head. What kind of bread(s) did you grow up on?
I grew up in the 50s and 60s eating Wonder Bread, and sometimes the exotic Buttermilk Wonder Bread, or even (gasp!) 'wheat' Wonder Bread. I don't think they actually called it 'whole wheat', just 'wheat'. As if the the white version is made from...not wheat? We took many trips to a Wonder Bread bakery outlet, where we loaded up on day-old loaves to store in the freezer. I think they were about 25 cents apiece at the time. As an aside, I read recently that Wonder Bread won't be sold in southern CA anymore starting sometime later this year.
I think I was first exposed to bread with food value after I moved to California in the 70s. No wonder I never got tall. The first time I made bread was in 9th grade biology class, when we were studying who knows what. Didn't do it again for decades.
How about you?
