Bread in a Bread Bag
I recently started making this bread for sandwiches. I have a hard time eating 100% whole wheat bread, which is often so dense, but since this is half whole wheat, I feel that is a good compromise. And it is delicious! I recently made this bread bag, as well. I have been trying to stay away from plastic in my kitchen, so making one of these has been on my to-do list for a while. I am pleased with how well it has been working. Mostly I've used it with this bread, which stays soft and fresh for about 2 days in there. By the third day (which is usually when we finish it), it has started getting slightly hard, but it still works great for toast or eggs-in-a-frame. I made a simple two-layer drawstring bag, with both layers being a tightly woven cotton.
