November 17th Homemade Bread Day

Today was created by the Homemade Bread Day Committee of Montague, Mi. No one seems to know exactly when that occurred but since bakers celebrate today by pricing a loaf of bread at 40 cents, the price charged in the 1970’s. There is nothing like the smell of bread baking. It can fill a house with a scent that makes nearly everyone feel better and hungry. I remember visiting a bakery at a Marine base just as they were baking bread for the day. I did not want leave and none of those with me wanted to leave either. If you can remember that scent from one or two loaves being baked at a home imagine a thousand loaves being baked all at the same time.

How to celebrate – Bake some bread today. Visit a bakery today. Thank a Baker.
