Refrigerated bread isn't so bad after I put it in the microwave on a weaker power for 7-10 seconds (depending on the power level).  It's soft and moist just like fresh!

hmmm....i was reading too that some people make their sandwiches on frozen bread, then by lunch, it's thawed out perfectly....


it's not like we don't use it a lot either...Andrew takes sandwiches every day for lunch....he makes them the nite before...maybe we'll try the frozen thing....i just HATE having to toss bread because it's moldy, like, a few days after we buy it!

My mom has used a bread box forever and they keeps everything in there and I can't remember the last time anything went moldy at her place.


She has one of the roll top ones - its really cute!

I keep my bread in the microwave, but I dont do it to prevent it from going moldy; I just hate having extra stuff cluttering the countertops. However, I NEVERr have moldy bread, so maybe I've been taking preventative measures and didnt even know it! :)

Bread (real, no preservative bread) technically should be bought every day.  That's why bakeries try so hard to get rid of it before close.  Unfortunately the American marketplace does not work like that anymore- we shop for a week at a time, not a day at a time.  So it's hard to get good bread that is still good a few days later without the dreaded freezer (I hate freezing it too).

I actually bought a small bread loaf pan thinking maybe i should just make my own bread frequently.  DH and I could never finish the supermarket sized loaf within a week. But I completely forgot that preservatives free bread doesn't last more than a few days! Looks like either case the bread would still have to go to the fridge most of the time.

We buy several loaves each time we go shopping and we freeze it all and thaw as we need it.  I have never thought it to taste weird or freezer burned, and I am really picky about it!! LOL

We have to freeze ours and then just take it out as needed. We are not big bread eaters, so a loaf will last us a loong time! Plus I usually make my own, which I freeze as well because I make it in such big batches.
