Fresh Sourdough Bread

15 Nov

Sweet Thing heard knocking on our back door and there was a lady from up in the neighborhood standing outside with a package in her hands. The lady asked does XXXX live here? Sweet Thing explained they lived next door and the lady said she had something for them, a freshly baked loaf of sourdough bread.


Sweet Thing said she had just talked to them and they just left to go to church. The lady said well here, would you like this bread, I’ll bake them another loaf tomorrow. Sweet Thing said she would give the bread to them when they returned, but the lady insisted we keep this loaf. Sweet Thing thanked her and remembered the big bag of turnips right there on the porch. The lady said she loved turnips and they exchanged recipes while they were talking. So, we got a fresh loaf of bread in exchange for some excess turnips from our garden, a good deal for everybody!

    What I wouldn’t give to have a neighbor like that.
