Audrey and I won a prize pack from a giveaway for Pillsbury recently. They sent us a cute bread basket, bread warmer, butter knife, jam and honey, and coupons for a product line called Simply. We picked up a loaf of Simply Rustic Bread the other day and decided to give it a try.
I was skeptical. It is not homemade. No measuring or mixing went into the creation of this bread. All Audrey had to do was grease the baking sheet, remove the bread from the container, and cut slits in the top. I was morally opposed to the idea. Then I tried it. Or rather, the babysitter gave some to the girls and then told us how good it was. We all fought over the rest of the loaf. It rivaled Audrey's bread machine loaves.
Then I thought: why would I include this baking adventure on our blog? How hard is it to pop a pre-made bread in the oven to cook for 30 minutes? But, I remembered, not all of our readers have the time to make from scratch bread often. Next time you want a quick, fun, tasty treat to make with your little helper, try the Simply Rustic Bread from Pillsbury. It really tastes good. And you can enjoy a simple activity that will help your child become more independent in the kitchen.
