Hello, all!

I’ve finally started the final season of Schitt’s Creek, and am probably in danger of going through it too quickly.

Ramble of the Day

A very simple, but revealing question: What is your go-to bread?

For the most part, I’ve gone for a simple whole grain loaf. I would mostly use it for some toast in the morning, as I realized a while ago it wasn’t always the best for different types of sandwiches. As a result, I ended up with lots of other types of breads for sandwiches but I never really actually thought to use anything else for toast. That changed a couple of weeks ago when there was some sourdough lying around and I was encouraged to have some for breakfast.

I think I’ve had sourdough toast at least four times for breakfast in the last week. I have spent more time thinking about my breakfast than usual on those days, and I’m sadder than usual when breakfast ends. (By this, I mean mildly sad when I eat the last bite as opposed to being generally but unremarkably content after usually eating the last of my breakfast.) I wonder if I should consider always having sourdough around, because I don’t mind having sandwiches on it (though I think I’ve been eating fewer sandwiches lately).

Really, though, I ask because I realize there are probably a lot of bread preferences out there and I’m genuinely curious.

tl;dr: Let’s talk bread preferences as I quickly develop a taste for sourdough.
