Remember not long ago when I was lamenting the cost of a loaf of bread and wanting to grind my own wheat and bake my own? Yeah, well, I still haven't tried the recipes you all sent to me, but I want to!
I cringed inside last week when I bought a loaf of my favorite Oroweat bread and the price had gone up to $3.88. For a loaf of bread. From Walmart! I think that is just crazy-expensive for bread, but since I had company coming and we'd be eating sandwiches for lunch a couple of days, I bit the bullet and bought it...because-I'm-not-a-sandwich-kind-of-girl-and-if-I'm-going-to-have-to-eat-one-I-at-least-want-the-bread-to-be-good.
Well, John and I went on a date while his parents were here. We headed downtown to one of our favorite restaurants, and as we were driving, I remembered seeing an Oroweat bakery outlet nearby. I never been in so I asked John to stop and let me run in for a minute, and he obliged. Oh my goodness! Major score!
Remember that loaf of bread I bought for 3.88?
Well, the bakery outlet had the same bread marked 2/3.00. Two loaves for less than the cost of ONE at Walmart!!! I got two, plus a loaf of the Health Nut kind (which I also love) -- all for $4.59. PLUS the cashier let me pick something off of the "free" table because it was my first visit.
I've got the extra bread in my freezer, and next time I head that direction, I'll definitely be stopping back in. I love frugal finds, and this one made my day!
