Give bread a chance


A group of friends threw a baby shower for Cameron on Sunday. It was so much fun, mostly because it was a potluck kind of thing and every single person brought bread. Ok, 2 people didn't bring bread, but everyone else brought so much bread that it seemed like everyone did.

Bread.

I love bread. Why does it get such a bad rap? It never did anything to you, other than offering delectable sustenance. Stop creating diets that center around avoiding it. There are so many different things you can do with it, and if you just eat it moderately and not by the entire loaf, I think you'll find you can be a very fit and healthy person.* Don't look to me for your example, though.

Today I had wheat bread, french bread, crackers, tortillas, sticky buns, cupcakes, and cheesebread.

I call it the "Go ahead, pretend you're not getting married on Friday" diet. It also involves lavish amounts of champagne.

*Not sure who I'm talking to.

Growing up, my favorite snack was a "jam sannich," you know, taking two pieces of bread and jammin' them together.

Bread is the greatest thing since sliced bread.

I just blew your mind, didn't I?

Yay! I LOVED my shower - it was so much fun! I can't believe you didn't mention the excellent Baby Mama mix you put together for everyone - I was listening to it on the way to work, and it kept making me smile like an idiot.

Do you have any sticky buns left?

Ah yes. Mama Said Knock You Out and Baby Got Back. Truly the cornerstones to any fetus's beginning music appreciation.

I trashed the sticky buns. I know, they're bread. It was a crime.
