I saw this ‘housewife’ bread today while doing my routine circuit of shopping at three different grocery stores to find all the ingredients for one meal!
A couple of things of interest here: the “housewife” apparently favors the more healthy wheat and rye flours, she strangely opts for organic vinegar and malt extract (but not organic flour??) and is able to pay $13US for a loaf of bread. I’m so routinely astounded by the final tally from grocery shopping trips that I really can’t even listen to the final amount! I try to make good choices on individual items and not dwell on the depressing final tally… I mean, a girl’s gotta eat, right? But maybe she should learn how to make her own bread! My sis-in-law got me the book Artistan Bread in Five Minutes a Day for Christmas and the price of this bread has given me the kick in the arse needed to go buy the requisite pizza stone to give this method a try!
