I wasn't laughing...

Yesterday, bread making went well - initially! We were doing the jigsaw puzzle and heard a loud thwack coming from somewhere behind us (front of the house). We checked every room, couldn't find anything so assumed something had fallen over in the attic. DB had been up and down like a yoyo putting things away post Christmas and New Year visitors.

The beeper on the cooker sounded to indicate the bread was ready for the oven. Oven was put on and I went to get the bread - couldn't find it. Assuming I was losing my marbles, I checked the kitchen and other rooms in case I had moved it and forgotten -

Nope, nowhere. Checked the airing cupboard again (where it usually goes) and found the thwack had been the protective bread cover, with the rising of the dough, had hit one of the pipes, causing it and the bread tin, to tilt backwards off its shelf.

It was now trapped between two slats, still in its tin. After the air went blue and I had strutted away in disgust, DB pulled out the unit, extracted the dough and tin and handed it over. I checked it over for dust, wood particles etc and not seeing any, put it into the oven.

It was an odd shape but it cooked fine and tastes as per normal.

I know - you can't make it up can you?

  1. Haha brilliant, I had to laugh ... I've never lost my bread, but I guess there's time 😊

    I assume I've lost my marbles many times a day at the moment!!

  2. You must have wondered how on earth you could lose a loaf of bread!

    1. I was so annoyed it nearly got thrown away, but calmed down enough to just get it in the oven and bake it.

  3. I started to think that maybe a pet or two walked off with your bread. I had to chuckle over where you found it. Glad it turned out well, if a little oddly shaped.

    God bless.

  4. You must have thought you were going crazy. Still, the consolation is you did make some of us smile.

  6. That's the kind of thing I would do. I'm glad you managed to find it in the end and that you were able to use it still. X

  9. Thank you for the good laugh. You describe the search perfectly--I'm sure many of your readers have been dealing with similar mental glitches recently. I know I have been! The detail I most love is your description of checking for dust and wood particles and then deciding to bake the loaf. Yes! I think we're way too fussy about minor flaws in what we produce from home. What we make is real, and much more nourishing than the faux stuff. (Sorry for that reference to political speak, but I'm suffering here in the U.S.)
