Would you like to hear a little Mom-rant from the other side of the world?

This morning... after a long and arduous meal of bread and Nutella (oh...such a hard food to choke down, too) s-o-m-e-b-o-d-y put the bread back in the bread box.

"Is there any more bread for dinner tonight?" I ask.

"Yeah, there's lotsa bread left."

After having spent 30 minutes grinding cabbage for cole-slaw (I am such a nice mom sometimes), slicing tomatos and mozarella for salad (again... exceedingly nice) and setting the table in the sunlit kitchen for an inviting family meal, I opened the doors to the cabinet and rolled up the bread box lid. This... is what I found.



Lotsa bread for dinner...

The thing is, I popped the pathetic piece of torn (or is it chewed?) bread into our bread plate to take my spiteful picture... and then noticed what was written inside!



I guess I will start praying for my twelve loaves...

Oh that's so funny! But not!

My husband is the worst for eating through an entire box of something. And then I come down ready to eat a cracker or two only to find....nothing! Arg!

Oh dear! When Jessica was nine years old she ate 2 loaves of bread a day!!! Now a loaf lasts 4 days!

AHHHHH! I totally feel your pain!! I can't tell you how many times I have went to the pantry only to find an empty package. DRIVES ME NUTS! I mean, can't they atleast toss the package?

LOL! Oh no! I really shouldn't laugh, but there have been so many days that I just plain forget to make bread (my little ones are too small to leave me bread-less without my knowing) that I know your pain.

I hate to admit it, but I'm one of those people that leaves a couple of "something" in the package, just so I can say I didn't eat it all. ;)

We used to do this my mom, those were not good evenings and a long walk to the store.

J'espère que tu as trouvé l'auteur de ce crime. Hahaha...
Je te donne un bon conseil: Conserve toujours une livre de pain au congélateur, car ça rend service.
