November 17th Homemade Bread Day

There is nothing like the smell of homemade bread baking in a house that turns that house instantly into a home. Bread, a basic part of the diet for thousands of years, has been around since 5,000 to 10,000 BC. I know, that’s not narrowing it down a lot but it’s as close as science can get! There’s white bread, wheat bread, rye bread, nearly any kind of grain can be turned into bread, it just depends on your preferences. Today was probably created by the Homemade Bread Day Committee of Montague, WI though no one seems to know for sure.

How to celebrate – Make some bread today. Make some bread for your neighbors. Visit a bakery.
