Photo-A-Day: July 8th

July 8th 2016We’ve put off shopping most of the week because it’s been horrible and rainy here. We’ve even had thunder on a few days! And given that our primary means of getting around is cycling, well… I’m sure you can understand why we’ve stayed home.

Today though the weather cleared up, so we decided to make the most of the sunshine and finally get around to doing that shopping. We popped into the lovely little bakery on our way there and ended up leaving with a bag full of bread, as well as a little sweet treat each. The bag full of bread is an offer thing that I think they do regularly. They pack up a selection of breads that are getting close to their date, and sell the bag for 5€. It’s really good value! We got six or seven loaves of varying shapes and sizes in our bag.

We did have a look through the bag to get an idea of what was in it before we bought it, but as most of the loaves didn’t have labels it’s hard to tell what’s what. The lovely little loaf that you can see in the picture is a very tasty seedy bread. (Probably pumpkin seeds, given it’s shaped like a pumpkin!) There were actually two of those in the bag. We also got a wheel-shaped white bread, a round rye, a very soft bread that I think little flecks of cheese through it,  and a firm loaf that may have been oat. I think that’s all of them!

Clearly it’s far more bread than we’d eat before it all goes bad, but that’s what freezers are for, right?! Whilst husband cooked dinner I sliced up all but two of the loaves (the rye and one of the pumpkins) and stuck them in the freezer. I did keep a slice or two of the other breads out just so that we can try those fresh too! Though I doubt husband will touch the maybe-cheese one… He doesn’t like cheese. Strange man.

    1. Oh, we made carrot rolls (and sweet potato ones) a while back! Very tasty 😀

      We tend to slice our bread before freezing (if it’s not presliced) just because being only two of us we don’t get through a lot of bread at once, and it’s so much easier to be able to just pull out a couple of slices to defrost as and when we need them rather than worrying about the bread going stale (or worse, mouldy!) before we get around to eating it all.
