"Did you know that on a farm people live right there with the animals?" This was Rhys' observation about our trip out to a farm to pick up our bulk food order. I am now the proud owner of 25 pounds of flour, 25 pounds of popcorn kernals, 12 pounds of sugar, 1 pound of whole cinnamon sticks, 8 ounces of Mexican vanilla, large bag of vital gluten, bread conditioner, buttermilk powder, 3 whole chickens, and 2 dozen fresh eggs. I want to get baking! It is going to be 90 degrees. Oh the humanity!!!!! I used up my old flour tonight making two loaves of bread. It allowed me to use my gluten and buttermilk. They taste pretty good. I am thinking tomorrow morning's breakfast will be toast made out of my bread and eggs. I wonder if fresh eggs will taste different. With all my plans for baking comes the realization that I am missing supplies! I want bread pans, good pie pans that look nice, something to grind up my cinniman sticks. I did recently buy an egg slicer so that serious need has been filled.
I can totally see how people can become hoarders. It is comforting to me to know that I have 25 pounds of flour. I can screw something up and start all over because it is ok. There is more. Just imagine what all I would buy in bulk if I had a basement.
