National Homemade Bread Day

On November 17, homes will fill with warm, comforting aromas reminding us to slow down and enjoy National Homemade Bread Day.

Yeast bread calls for us to slow down. We need to spend time with each other as we work the dough and let it rest and rise before baking. Quick breads allow a special treat to share and enjoy with coffee or tea. Other homemade breads, such as donuts, pretzels, muffins, and biscuits, add variety to our everyday meals. And making them with friends and family brings joy and an opportunity to exchange recipes.

Those who make homemade bread commit to using good ingredients and investing in the time. They make it not only because they love the flavor, but because they know the people they love to do also. Homemade bread enriches the flavors of our meals and the flavors of our conversations, too.

Bread is full of symbolism around the world, across cultures and religions. In our lives, bread is valuable. We consider our livelihood to be our daily bread. We are making it, breaking it, consuming it as part of our faith. Bread can be exciting if it’s sliced or boring if it’s white. There’s a bonus bread, too. However, it seems a bit messy if it’s buttered on both sides. Then again, when we roll in the dough, it’s messy, too. Bake it, and it becomes heavy bread, but it means the same thing.


Had multiple problems logging on to the site since yesterday. Hence the late presentation of National Day. Hopefully, it's a permanent fix - I went and go a new e-mail address and user name - seemed to work ok.

    Not meaning to be off topic, but any luck with your original account?


    Btw- nothing like the smell of those yeast rolls cooking at school when I was a young one.....

    While living in NC, I noticed that store bought bread regardless of season would last only a couple of days after bringing it home. My wife's homemade bread in contrast would last as long as it was kept. The power of filth.
