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.
