She says, “I also grow my own popcorn” but doesn’t explain why she doesn’t grow her own wheat. And why don’t people who bake bread that often buy flour in larger sizes than the five-pound sacks from the supermarket? It would be cheaper to buy the ten- or twenty-pound sacks, even if you have to go to a restaurant supply house.
I was once in a fairly fancy upper-end supermarket some years back where I was treated to someone having a complete meltdown at the meat counter because they were out of organic, free-range chicken. The regular chicken was clearly unacceptable and the poor counter-worker was getting his ass chewed because of the failure of the supply chain. It was a truly surreal, head-shaking moment.
You really need to self-modulate if you’re going to go on a rant about a shortage of baking goods. The tone of your message is what everyone will remember, rather than its content. Nobody wants a bad yeast inflection.
Hey, I’m with Caren … and all you poseurs who got into Lord of the Rings just because the damned movies made it popular … well, you’re just a bunch of dilettante geeks who care nothing for anyone but yourselves!!!
