Sometimes there is nothing better than a good’ol slice of toast to start the day off with or to eat at other times of the day…. As an avid toast eater of many years I know how I like my toast toasted or at least until my friend told me about the article about how to toast bread……
Can you just imagine…Me standing in my kitchen with a slice of bread to be toasted in my hand when I received a call telling me that after all these years…. You guessed it right!!!
I have been toasting my bread incorrectly!! That was a horror morning at its best… Simply a bad toast time!!! And that all thanks to those folks out there who say they know how to toast the perfect piece of bread….
After all these years and all those toasting errors I am still a faithful toast eater… Now according to the information it is essential to have the right thickness of bread (no exceptions here) Thickness is of the utmost importance, so take heed when you are slicing your bread!!!
I got my trusty bread slicing knife out and approached the loaf with caution this morning…. I could tell by looking at the loaf of bread that there was danger lurking within the loaf. I placed the loaf with caution on the cutting board trying not to upset the loaf of bread in any way…. Can you see it now in the headlines of the local newspaper “Women up-set loaf of bread, and now she can’t have a slice of toast”… That is moving information and you wouldn’t want to be confronted with an ornery loaf of bread either!
But I managed to slice the bread… of course I used a high tech device that will calculate the thickness, so no unwanted angles or so in my slices… I plugged the toaster in and I could sense that the sliced bread was getting a bit nervous about the thought of being put into the hollows of a toaster (Yes, I believe it could be somewhat traumatizing for the bread)…. Have you ever taken a peek down into your toaster? (Of course when it isn’t plugged in!!) It looks mighty dangerous to me with all those electrical bits that turn a reddish color when in operation!!
Bravely I put two slices into the toaster and pushed the little lever down and waited patiently for my toast (Did you know if you pop the toast up before it is finished its toasting time that the bread won’t be completely toasted? According to the info) what idiot doesn’t know that…. Please
Now that the toasting process has been completed (this all sounds so scientific) I can remove the toast from the toaster and butter it (wow) Plus the temperature of the butter is also important too… This making toast business is tiring me out and I am not finished yet….. Why did my friends have to tell me all this stuff????
Plus to top it off you have to wait an allotted time before buttering it too, Okay the clock is ticking … Maybe now I can butter it and top it with whatever I like. But the most important thing is and you will never guess in a million years….. You have to think about “how many slices you would like to eat”…. Now that is a mind boggling thought in itself!!!
So when you get up in the morning, don’t rush the toasting process and take care to toast correctly or else you may end up with a sad looking piece of toast and that you wouldn’t want…. Have fun toasting toast!
