What’s your all-time favorite bread?
Why am I asking this question? Because today, November 17th is National Homemade Bread Day.
I’ve only had homemade bread a handful of times in my life. Stephanie, my wife’s longtime BFF used to make us bread, baked in her kitchen. We’d get the privilege to slice the warm, big loaf to make sandwiches or toast whenever we’d visit their place. They moved to Idaho, so we don’t get access to her yummy bread anymore.
My current go-to bread is Dave’s Killer Bread.
-I get the one with the Green label (21 grains and seeds). I did some investigative research to find that Dave’s Killer Bread was sold to Flowers Foods, in 2015 for $275 million. This is probably why I could no longer purchase Dave’s Killer Bread, from Wenatchee Natural Foods.
I probably eat bread seven days a week.
I eat peanut butter and jelly sandwiches (with sliced bananas) for lunch, every day. On the weekends, I’ll have my favorite breakfast of Eggs (sunny side up) on toast (served with Mayo and sliced melted cheese on top).
I also have liked buying Ezekiel Bread, found in the frozen section at Wenatchee Natural Foods - (A place I regularly run across the street to, If I run out of bread in my office).
The bread that I’ve liked from my past include:
-A bread originally made at Sluys Bakery in Poulsbo,
Poulsbo Bread was popular in Pacific Northwest grocery stores some years ago.
-This was the first bread of the new “Whole-Wheat” bread craze of the mid 70s, Who could forget the Roman Meal logo with the strong, stoic looking soldier in the pic. I wouldn't want to pick a fight with this Roman or Dave, from Dave’s Killer Bread for that matter.

-This is the bread I first remember eating. It was exciting to eat bologna sandwiches and get a baseball card in the back of the loaf.
I should also add that : Langendorf Bread was always around at my Grandma Louise’s house.
-Grandpa Tom worked at Langendorf Bread (located in Seattle, next door to current Starbucks World Headquarters, South of the Stadiums in SOHO) until his retirement in the late 80s.
Do you remember a locally owned bread company or brand that you loved and remembered?
