I still remember how during the days of my MS we used to literally live on Bread. This was an easy (not so fulfilling) replacement for a regular Indian Bread (chappatis). There was no time or patience left to cook chapatis. So we resorted to eating bread. I am not so fond of it myself. I do enjoy it occasionally with soup or salad or in a sandwich.
It so happens sometimes that I go to the grocery store, pick up a bread thinking that I would be able to consume it before its expiry :). And guess what, most of the times it so happens that it hasn’t been consumed and now need to use it fast. Here is one recipe trick that I started using to consume it. Enjoy it as breakfast or an evening snack.
