Bimbo Bread

There’s a bakery near my house called “Bimbo”. It’s not a place you can go into though. It’s like a bakery factory or something. I’ve been so curious.

Then the other day, I was at a grocery store I don’t go to all the time, and I saw Bimbo sandwich bread! Of course I had to get it.

It’s smaller than regular sandwich bread. I think a slice of American cheese would go edge to edge on it.

In my mind, that’s a pro – a smaller slice means fewer calories. I eat peanut butter sandwiches for lunch because they’re convenient, but they are admittedly not the healthiest.

The texture is different from the regular cheapo white bread I buy – it’s chewier. It’s pleasant.

I give Bimbo bread a thumbs up.

    Now I’m curious about the name. Is that what the owner calls the white bear on the wrapper, or is this a disparaging remark about the head baker, or …?

    [We tend to buy smaller-sliced bread as well to assuage our guilt about invested carbs. Arnold bakery makes some that Thurman finds in the local food liner, and it’s pretty good.]

    Fascinating! If that’s their ‘grande/large’ white bread, now I have to see the small loaf. Off to the internet…..

Piquant Patty

I made something to eat yesterday that I haven’t made in a long time: hamburger with onion soup mix. I used to make hamburger patties in the frying pan all the time, with soup mix and without. Somewhere along the line, I stopped making them.

It was tasty. And it had protein! Yay! My trainer says I don’t eat enough protein.

Redolent Roses

Yesterday was mostly a rest day. Things are busy at school. I did finally get my new roses in the ground though. The planter in front of my house is full now. And every rose is one with a strong scent.

Friday Fun

I enjoy knowing about fun things that other people haven’t heard about, and then sharing them. I recently showed the seventh graders “Friday” by Rebecca Black. They loved it!

I showed them a week ago, and they asked for me to play it again yesterday. I had a few minutes at the end of class, so I did!

Kitchen Cover

My kitchen came with a black-and-white checkered floor. It is whimsical perhaps, but it’s not something I would choose myself, and over time, the white squares are looking dirty. I hope to replace it some day.

But in the meantime, I got a rug. It’s an outdoor kind of rug, so it’s tough and non-absorbent – good for a kitchen. And it was cheap at the Home Goods store 🙂
