Dishing It Up With Sharon Insul—Don’t Leave Dad To Ask ‘Where’s The Bread?’

Loaves of bread ready for "man's food."

Come sit with me for a while and see what I’m bringing to the table…

Have you ever met a man who didn’t love, and in some instances demand his bread? Whether it’s breakfast, lunch, dinner, at home or in a restaurant, you will most likely hear, “where’s the bread?” Crazy right? I guess it must be a guy thing because I don’t recall hearing any girls asking the waiter for bread … hmm.

What brought this subject to mind is upcoming Father’s Day. Because guys don’t generally care about fancy shmancy wrapped gifts, one has to get creative to show just how important dads are. Which is where I come in … helllloo it’s what I do … create, conjure, think the unthinkable, and make the unimaginable a reality.

So here’s my thought. If you’re having bunches of people in to celebrate ‘The Dad’s Day,” then check out the first photo here.

People, people, I haven’t abandoned you. Shhh, please calm yourselves, it will all be all right. You are in a no-bake zone, this is an easy-peasy, no brainer, that will invoke joy, excitement, and more than likely ecstasy … yes, yes, you read correctly, ecstasy.

Use a large basket, bin, old wood apple crate, and fill it with loaves of bread ready for man food. What was that? The basket in the photo, yup it is pretty cool, and comes from a very old time bakery. Hang on just another itsy-bitsy second and then you can go on your merry way …promise.

So now that you’ve got the main ingredient down pat, check out the second photo. Bring out everything edible, and lay it out on your sideboard, kitchen counter, picnic table, or bring an extra blanket for the bread bin and all the mouthwatering goodies that your imagination can create.

What? Leftover loaves can easily be frozen sliced or whole. Bringing the bread back to life is pretty easy. Toast, or warm it in the oven with a moist paper towel laid on top.

Mmm hmmm …The best way to a man’s heart is through his stomach.
