I'm getting ready to bake some bread today. I'm not in the habit of baking bread anymore, though I used to do it regularly. I tend to eat less bread these days as well. The son who lives nearby can no longer tolerate gluten, so I have less incentive to make bread for others. I sometimes do make gluten-free muffins, but gluten-free bread seems to be more of a challenge for me. How about you? Are your family members bread eaters? Is anyone in your circle gluten intolerant? I know that was a bit of a fad around here recently, but my son is gluten intolerant for real. He has some severe reactions to eating wheat and all gluten.

I am not a big bread eater but my BF sure is. We get French bread here and he sure can eat it faster than we can buy it. Normally I have to take 2 in the morning and 2 again at night and they are both gone. I hardly ever eat bread at all. But I did find a fantastic bread recipe that only takes an hour from start to finish and it is delicious. I make this a lot because it is so fast to do. Everyone here loves this bread and it is gone in no time at all. I think many of the people here on the islands eat a lot of bread and too much butter if you ask me.

My mom loves bread but still eats only plain, old white bread (she's 93). I prefer whole wheat or rye but don't eat as much bread as my mom does. I've been saying I was going to try my hand at baking bread but so far it's just talk

Like you when we were younger and the house was full of family I made bread all the time. Now I never do that. I stopped eating bread a long time ago and prefer tortillas for sandwiches and at the age of 70 I eat a lot less than I did at 50...
