Bread ~ Part of our Day

I’ve mentioned before that bread is sold by the pound in Panama.  We have a bakery in town that sells delicious bread but the prices they charge for a loaf are pretty high for Panama.  The two simple ingredients of bread are water and flour and we just can’t see a $3.00 to $5.00 loaf of bread in our budget.

We’d found a brand of plastic wrapped bread from the grocery store that didn’t have funny soapy taste to it, finally.  And then I found a great recipe for our bread machine that was working well and helped to supplement the bagged bread.  And now I’ve been given a recipe for even better bread that works with any flour or grain and I’ve been baking up a storm.

The interpretation of “daily bread”, food that we need for nutrition is rarely used in the literal form.   Today I am very grateful for my daily bread.

    There will soon be a NEW bakery in Pedasi, they will be located next to Western Union. Not sure what they will charge, but a little competition goes a long way.
    Are you willing to share your “Bread” discovery. I am the cook in our house but I am not really a baker, but willing to try. The rental house in Pedasi we are moving into October 1 does not have an oven, but I have a cast iron “Dutch Oven” that I thought I would try using on my grill.

      Yes, looking forward to Valery’s new place. She’s been busy buying equipment and doing the renovations. 🙂

      The bread is supposed to be baked on a pizza stone but I don’t have one and I’ve learned that it’s best to “discover” eventually what I’m looking for than to actually go on the hunt for that elusive item. Right now I’m using a cast iron frying pan. The trick is getting the bread into the pan.

      I’ll email the recipe!

I'd love to hear from you!
