Today was created by the Homemade Bread Day Committee of Montague, Mi. No one seems to know exactly when that occurred but since bakers celebrate today by pricing a loaf of bread at 40 cents, the price charged in the 1970’s. There is nothing like the smell of bread baking. It can fill a house with a scent that makes nearly everyone feel better and hungry. I remember visiting a bakery at a Marine base just as they were baking bread for the day. I did not want leave and none of those with me wanted to leave either. If you can remember that scent from one or two loaves being baked at a home imagine a thousand loaves being baked all at the same time.
How to celebrate – Bake some bread today. Visit a bakery today. Thank a Baker.
