Mom and Dad has asked me to make bread while I was there and since I’m a flour snob, and I knew I couldn’t get my favorite flour there, I brought along my bucket of flour.
These plastic buckets, with gamma seal lids are great for storing bulk items such as flour, sugar, wheat, beans . . anything I buy in bulk. Wal-Mart had been getting their icing in these buckets and when the buckets were empty, they’d sell them for $1 or $1.50 but now they’re getting icing in boxes so I’ve lost that source for inexpensive buckets.
This flour bucket sits right outside my kitchen door in the garage and is used to keep the flour canister full. Knowing there would be several loaves of bread made at mom’s, instead of bringing the canister that holds about 5 pounds of flour, the whole bucket made the trip.
While there, I made 5 or 6 loaves of bread, which is probably more than 5 pounds of flour. And, I made a peach pie from peaches I had canned in the early summer. It was so good . . I think I may need to make a peach pie for Vince and Chad for Thanksgiving!
