Question asked “What do you remember about bread or bread baking”.

As a kid we would have chip butties on a Friday because my dad didn't get paid until Saturday.  You could get a loaf of bread, half a dozen eggs and a bag of chips off the milkman and you didn't have to pay him until Saturday.  That was always Friday night tea as we didn't have any money left.

We only ever had white bread, now I only ever eat brown.
