Food Waste Friday addendum

We had a casualty in the food waste department this that I did not even see coming, and didn't notice until Sunday! It was my homemade bread. Sadly, I even discovered it when I went to make a sandwich! It was very upsetting. I lost about half a loaf because we didn't eat it fast enough. Luckily for me, The Frugal Girl blogged today about storing homemade bread, so when I make my next loaf (most likely tomorrow, as I'm quite busy today) I will most definitely be using some of her preservation tips.
It was interesting to note that, according to her, the reason it doesn't last as long as store bread is because it doesn't contain any preservatives in it. Of course I knew this in the back of my mind, but I needed the reminder. It made me happy that I didn't succumb and buy store bread yesterday after discovering our ruined bread, and it makes me really happy that I have the time (for now, at least) to make our own bread. Though I'm not sure I'll ever be able to go back to store bought bread again, at least for sandwiches!
Sometimes a nice reaffirmation that I'm doing the right thing (or a good thing) is nice.
