Attack Of The Bread!!!

November 12, 2008

We have WAY too much bread in this house! Despite giving away the equv. of a loaf this week, we have at least 6 half loaves and random leftover slices and the husband just brought home 2 pumpkin “scuffins” (kind of like a muffin/scone) and a blondie. I told him he’s not allowed to bring home sweets anymore, or if he does he can’t let me know they’re here!! Thankfully I did not dig in and had a healthy blondie-free lunch. Guess I’m getting used to them :mrgreen:

Undercooked (and therefore unsellable but delectable for my love-of-dough palate) pumpkin scuffins




2 more loaves –


We enjoyed a nice lunch together, though, and caught up on yesterday’s happenings. We spontaneously made a frittata with the leftover pizza veggies (shrooms + pepper) and put it on a sandwich with some mustard and romaine. The frittata covered both pieces of bread, so I kind of disassembled and ate it all with a fork.


And we split a big orange


Plus carrots



I’m headed out on a quick walk to study Nutrition in the Lifespan, then to GOTR (we’re running for 30 minutes straight today!), then to Micro (blah).

Great lookin lunch Kath, I am a big fan of the blondies and could go for one right now :) Have a great afternoon!



2 Maggie November 12, 2008 at 1:44 pm

Disassembled sammies are the best. They take twice as long to eat!

Oh Kath, I remember the day hub would bring home “goof-ups” of bread… warm, sometimes underdone *yummmmm loaves of bread. We were poor so we ate tons of pb and honey on that bread. CARB HEAVEN… I think I was still a runner then, thank goodness! πŸ˜‰ Enjoy it! xoxo

that frittata looks excellent! I by far prefer to eat sammies open-faced- not only does it take longer and you can enjoy it more, i like seeing the filling and then i don’t end up smooshing it All over me! Haha.

I’ve never heard of the term ‘scuffin’ but want to use it in conversation all the time now… might have to be my word of the day πŸ˜‰

I am a bread whore – love all types, so if you want to mail me some, that would be sweet!


6 Halie November 12, 2008 at 1:58 pm

Those scuffins look tasty! And the blondie. And the bread. And the rest!

Hope all goes well with GOTR! And at Micro :)

Underdone cookies are FAR superior to ones that are fully cooked!!!!


8 Shelby November 12, 2008 at 2:04 pm

I do love undercooked cookies, but I think undercooked blondies are the best thing in this world. I just had one the other day too =)


9 Oh She Glows November 12, 2008 at 2:08 pm

Are you able to freeze fresh bread like that? I never know…


10 Elissa November 12, 2008 at 2:14 pm

Hi Kath!

that lunch looks soooo-oo amazing

In terms of carb overload, I was thinking you could…

1. freeze the bread?
2. this may not go over well, but you could have healthy bread for breakfast some days instead of healthy oatmeal?…the bread is free!
3. eat bread instead of kashis…bread is healthier, right?

loove this blog :) :)

I have the opposite problem… NO MORE BREAD! So those photos are making me drool. a lot. I want a blondie too, yum!
I’m glad you got to eat lunch together :)


12 rhodeygirl November 12, 2008 at 2:35 pm

eeek i was afraid you would say you just cleaned when things looked dirty! i see the flors dirty for 3 days before i get to them! gaaaa!

have a fabulous afternoon!


13 ashley (sweet & natural) November 12, 2008 at 2:36 pm

Maybe you could do a bread giveaway contest? I don’t have a GH by me and I know I’d love to get my hands on some!


14 Cat November 12, 2008 at 2:52 pm

Yum to open-faced sandwiches (which I usually end up eating with a fork). That fritatta sounds delicious as do the scuffins! I also like saying that – scuffins… hehe :)


15 Amanda in Pittsburgh November 12, 2008 at 2:53 pm



16 Jennifer November 12, 2008 at 2:57 pm

Seriously, a fan giveaway is in order. I never buy fresh-baked bread b/c of the expense and my carb-phobia, but I would break it for free bread!


17 Jen November 12, 2008 at 3:04 pm

I LOVE fresh bread!! You need to freeze some of the goodness!


18 Liz Turtle November 12, 2008 at 3:08 pm

I’m a relative newcomer to your blog although I have stopped by a few times in the past, and I just wanted to say that I’m having a great time catching up on your FAQs and other past posts. I don’t know how you manage such a thorough blog what with classes and making that yummy oatmeal, but I’m so impressed :).


19 Runeatrepeat November 12, 2008 at 3:16 pm

I freeze bread that I get from Costco since it comes with 2 loaves. I don’t think my freezer changes the consistency too much that I notice. It get so hot here in the summer I have to keep my bread in the fridge anyways or it will go bad fast!

21 seelee live (for the love of peanut butter) November 12, 2008 at 3:34 pm

fritattatas! I’d like to see more of those :o)

those scuffins looks sooooo good-send em to philly they’re welcome here !!!


22 Tina November 12, 2008 at 3:48 pm

So many goodies!!!!!


23 sloan November 12, 2008 at 3:48 pm

I worked at a pizza place in college, and they would always send us home with the mess ups. After a while I started giving my pizzas to the homeless. No temptation for me, and a bunch of thrilled people at the shelter.


24 Laura November 12, 2008 at 3:52 pm

Scuffins is the cutest word. They sound delicious, especially in that they are undercooked!


25 Allison November 12, 2008 at 4:05 pm

I hope you you don’t think I’m a nerd for saying this, but I’ve been meaning to tell you I LOVE your house (from what I’ve seen in pictures)! I love the white trim, with hardwood floors, and BEAUTIFUL paint. Did you guys build or buy that house? If you bought it, it looks very new :-) I’m jealous…someday…haha


26 Maureen November 12, 2008 at 4:28 pm

Wow, I dont know how you survive with all those savoury carbs lying around. I’d have to banish them from the house altogether!


27 Fitness Surfer November 12, 2008 at 4:51 pm

Like the sandwich. It reminds me of a Philly on bread. New to the site, but love all the photos. I had to recently tell my hubby to stop offering to buy me chocolate when I’m having a bad day. Old habits die hard, and they die even harder when they become the husbands habit too. Luckily he’s already noticed a huge difference in me, visually (of coarse), emotionally, and energetically.


28 Betsy November 12, 2008 at 4:58 pm

i wish my non-existant husband worked at a bakery and brought me home free baked goods. jealous.


29 SmA033 November 12, 2008 at 5:03 pm

i LOVE great harvest bread but it’s hard to finish it off! i got dakota (my fav) & cinnamon chip a couple of weeks ago and we still have about 4 slices of the cinn. chip left, which no one seems to be touching!
btw, kath– i was reading today in fitness magazine while i was on the elliptical & i saw an interesting fact: 1/2 tsp of cinnamon has the same # antioxidants as 1/2 cup of raspberries or strawberries!


30 Jen November 12, 2008 at 5:08 pm

Hi Kath! Your lunch looks great … so nice that you and your hubby got to spend it together!

Wow … how could you resist those fabulous looking sweets?! πŸ˜›


31 Michelle November 12, 2008 at 5:21 pm

What yummy bread treats!!


32 Joanna November 12, 2008 at 5:37 pm

i admire you for your self control. where did you get it and can i get some, too? haha i would’ve downed that blondie in a heartbeat!


33 Allison K November 12, 2008 at 5:46 pm

scuffins! cute name, and they look delicious!


34 Laura November 12, 2008 at 5:47 pm

Hmmm, a new “Bread contest” would take care of those extra yummy loaves – just kidding!!


35 Mel November 12, 2008 at 6:06 pm

Looks like you and the hubby had a wonderful lunch to catch up!

I love the eggs, and I am in awe that you passed up the sweets. That’s a lot of will power! πŸ˜€


36 HangryPants November 12, 2008 at 6:10 pm

Pumpkin scuffins sound like a delicious mess up! I would buy one. πŸ˜€


37 Foodie (Fab and Delicious Food) November 12, 2008 at 6:38 pm

Mmmm, lunch looks great!


38 Megan November 12, 2008 at 7:29 pm

Those scuffins look good. I love a little undercooked versions of baked goods.


39 Erica November 12, 2008 at 7:46 pm

Good for you for resisting! It all look wayyy tooo good!


40 Laura November 12, 2008 at 8:06 pm

*I posted this message in the previous post, but wasn’t sure if you would see it, so I’m posting it here too*


I’m a Nutrition/Dietetics student and am actually in Advanced Vitamins/Minerals class right now. Iron absorption is inhibited by polyphenols, such as tannins that are found in tea & coffee. In addition, iron absorption is also inhibited by oxalic acid (found in dark green leafy veggies), phytates, and certain other minerals. Hope this helps!


41 Megan November 12, 2008 at 8:49 pm

Scuffins!! I want one :)


42 Lisa November 12, 2008 at 9:03 pm

Scuffins look unholy good.


43 Marlow November 12, 2008 at 9:08 pm

I work in the same shopping center as a Great Harvest. It smells SO good. Luckily, I’m gluten free so I can’t be tempted daily!!


44 Kath November 12, 2008 at 9:49 pm

Bread Contest it is – but I might have to wait a few weeks until things slow down around here

Liz Turtle,

Allison ,
I promise it’s not that fancy or nice!! It was built in the 1980s and is rather dated in places. There are crooked walls too. And popcorn ceilings, which I didn’t notice until after we moved in but don’t bother me at all. And we have no master bathroom. BUT, it is charming in spots and suits us well :) And our backyard is great. Thanks for the comment!

Laura ,
Thanks for your expertise!



45 runjess November 13, 2008 at 12:58 pm

Feel free to send some bread my way.


46 Katie November 14, 2008 at 9:41 am

So funny you posted this b/c I JUST made this deliciously yummy bread last night and was thinking that the bread queen, Kath, would be proud. lol!
