There is a saying: “The best thing since sliced bread!” That seems a low bar, but sliced or not (and despite the danger), I’m a huge fan of bread. I always have been. Fresh out of the oven can’t be beat, but toasted takes a close second place in my book. Toasting can make mediocre bread tasty and good bread divine.
As such, my standard breakfast for decades has been two slices of toast. (With the occasional substitution of a toasted bagel.) And I’ve noticed that a loaf of sliced bread always seems to have an even number of slices — which works out perfectly for those who make sandwiches as well as for anyone like me with my two-slice breakfast.
So imagine my surprise, today, when a single slice was left!

I guess you are having half a breakfast tomorrow! tee hee

Well, I do have another loaf in the fridge, but it does raise the issue of how to handle the extra slice. As you say, half a breakfast, or go the other way and splurge on a breakfast-and-a-half.
Or maybe just pay it forward, keep eating pairs, and hope for another incorrectly cut loaf to balance things out?

You betcha! Kinda like the corner pieces from a pan of brownies.

Just out of curiosity, what kind of bread is that?

It’s the Nine Grain & Seed bread from Wholesome Harvest. Very tasty!

Thanks. Looks tasty.
I vote for splurging on the next breakfast!

[…] Pastries are okay, but bread is my “bread of life” (see this post; or this fun one; or this very short one). My normal breakfast is two slices of toast; I especially like toasted bread. And while I’m […]
