On This Day in History: Sliced Bread


“It’s the best thing since sliced bread!” is a modern saying.  But where does it come from?

“Otto Frederick Rohwedder was an American inventor and engineer who created the first automatic bread-slicing machine for commercial use. It was first used by the Chillicothe Baking Company.”

Since then, we have seen pre-sliced bread in so many recipes and favorite meals.

I love grilled cheese and tuna sandwiches.  What about you?

Thanksgiving, 2015

Thanksgiving at my parents’ is always nice. Every year, my Mom and Aunt cook some traditional dishes together and we serve ourselves, buffet style. We sit around the dining room table and share what we are thankful for.

Some things that I am always thankful for are:

Good health

Friends and family

My job

A great support network

The government for helping me out, financially (even though it’s not perfect, it does help)

A roof over my head and food in my fridge

Tonight, I bring to you a link to the spiced cider recipe that I posted three years ago. We enjoyed this warm, golden liquid with our meal this evening. It was served in a pretty China teapot.

(I don’t have a photo of the teapot right now. Just be sure to serve yours in a pitcher that can withstand hot temperatures.)

I bought the two Fat Witch cookbooks. The books are gorgeous inside, with plenty of mouth-watering photographs of the finished product.

My PB & J Bars are out of the oven!
