Breaking Bread

If you know Billy, you know he loves bread. He's especially fond of a Publix French or Cuban bread loaf. Kroger bakery bread does not cut it for him. However, we have recently discovered that WalMart makes a mean Italian loaf -very soft and doughy on the inside. When we were in college, and he couldn't afford these luxurious loafs of bread, he would buy a loaf of Colonial white bread and smoosh 6 or 7 slices together and eat that as a snack. I'm telling you all this because this bread obsession continues, and he's now passing it down to the next generation.

Last night, the kids were having a lovely dinner of whole wheat pasta with homemade "Sneaky Chef" turkey meat sauce (I snuck in a bunch of extra veggies), sweet peas, and raspberries. Billy and I were having spaghetti squash with the meat sauce and peas, and Billy decided to open up a package of the WalMart Italian loaf. He tore off about 1/3 of the loaf and brought it in the dining room. The kids immediately started screaming, "BITES." This is their subtle hint that they would like whatever you having. Well, their bites were huge, and they kept screaming, "MAS BITES!" Between my 3 children and Billy, they ate 3/4 of the loaf of bread in one sitting! Of course, they were so full of bread dough that they didn't have room for the dinner I slaved over for them. They haven't seen the last of that meat sauce!!!
