It has taken years of careful research and trial and error but I finally have figured out the kind of gentleman that is perfect for me.

He enjoys eating the heel of the bread.

Maybe you think this is a little thing but I have mentally calculated how much bread I have disposed of in my lifetime and the numbers are huge. I am talking enough to feed a small village in Africa for a week.

Although with my luck, they won't like the end of the bread either.

White, wheat, honey wheat, whole grain, rye and on very special occasions I have been known to buy a loaf of pumpernickel..each and everyone one has two pieces that end up in the trash.

We do have a duck pond in our neighborhood but the request to go feed the two leftover pieces to the ducks no longer bring excitement to the Princess but eye rolls.

Maybe she knows the ducks are sick of the end pieces too.

So if I could just find a guy who not only doesn't mind the heel of the bread but actually LIKES it and looks forward to it, my world would be a perfect place.

Well, provided he finishes the last 1/4 of the soda bottle as well. That always ends up flat and poured down the sink.

I don't mind the heal of the bread. I don't think I find it all that exciting, but I don't mind it.

And, the way to avoid that leaving the last 1/4 of a can of pop is to start getting those 8 oz cans. Those are soooooo cute. ;-)

We call it the crust in England - and I always eat it!!!

Toasted with jam usually or possibly scambled egg.

I love the crusty endy bits... bread, pork roast, anything "loafy" - I'll take the end, thanks!

I take the heal and spread peanut butter over it, fold it up and grab a diet coke and chow down. Bread is bread.

I often throw out the last four slices - each end piece and 2 regular pieces I've deemed "stale". I'm a bit on the picky side though!

There you go... I can see the dating ad now...
"Looking for my end of loaf lover"
or
"Searching for my Heel Lover"

lol

So true! I always throw out those two pieces. The Boyfriend and I don't even eat the same type of bread, we buy our own separate loaves.

The Dish said...

The Husband eats the heels. I have always loved him for that!

Doc said...

Holy Cow.. I actually like the heel for making toast with! (scary we might be soulmates) lol

Jay: When I use the cans, I still dump the last quarter that I pour into the glass so the extra money isn't worth it.
Four dinners, the crust is the good part that is on cuban or italian bread. That I like, It is the bagged bread that have "heels" and those are hard and gross.

I need nocelerys address to send all these end pieces.

CP: Peanut butter and diet coke??? Enough said.

ETW gets it. :-)

Karen said...

I love the heel of the bread. We fight for it in my house.

Christine said...

Loni: Desperately seeking someone that likes the top end AND the bottom end? hmmmm.

VM: I am crazy like that with soap but I share my bread.

DIsh: YOu're a lucky gal.

Doc: Could be if I but had a soul.

I love the heels. They are the best part. Does that make me weird?

Special K said...

Thank you for this post, now I have a reason to keep my husband! YAY!

GiGi said...

LOL, Loni!! I do the same thing with cereal and milk...can't have that last bit of cereal with all the 'sawdust' in it, as I like to say....

Kat said...

hahaha! I don't eat the bread ends, or the last bit of pop either. :)

The heels is the best part, they make a manly sammidge that requires real work to eat, fill it full of meat and mustard and enough said
