Bread and butter

Of all the goodness the dining table holds
My first desire is to reach for fresh warm loaves of bread
Leave the meat and delicacies for others who crave them
My heart and stomach love those fresh rolls, muffins, and biscuits
It is easy to give up most of the good things
But don’t ask me to forsake my favorite form of carbs
Sometimes a desire flickers in my mind to stop this madness
But as it is often said, you cannot forgo your true love!

  1. We grew up knowing that bread is part of breakfast meaning we eat bread on daily basis and never had of anyone saying they don’t want bread so if you could look at which item people buy most for breakfast it’s break…🍵 🍞.
