worth the effort
I'm not sure why this is called friendship bread. It's more like a chain letter or virus. Someone gives it to you and then you pass it along.
The starter is like having a pet. You have to take care of it and feed it. It is high maintenance.
Brynn was very attentive to the starter. She's never had a pet.
I supervised while Jenni and Brynn baked the bread. I was the Little Red Hen. "Who will help me bake this bread?"
It was totally worth the effort...the girl's effort.
You might want to avoid me for awhile. I'm still contagious. If you are interested in spreading this pandemic to your "friends" and neighbors, give me a call. It might be a good way to break up with toxic friends and torment your B and C list friends... you know, the ones that bug. I'm just saying.
Next time, I just want the fresh baked loaf of bread please. Keep your virus to yourself.
