    Hostess going under

    When I first heard that the Hostess company was in trouble I thought, oh well, no more Twinkies, we don't eat that stuff anyway..but DH pointed out that they make the bread we buy. The only bread I've been able to find that is both milk-and peanut - safe for my kids. I'm so bummed. I have to go back to the shelves and start reading again...but I don't hold out much hope. I guess I'll go back to making my own bread, in my copious free time. (Where is the emoticon with the tongue hanging out?)

    Oh no! That stinks!!!! Everyone I know is going crazy on facebook about it! I haven't eaten that crap in years but the bread thing stinks! I hope you can find a new one that works for you.

    As my father in law would say, buy a bunch of loaves and freeze them. He freezes EVERYTHING!!!! Extra cake at a birthday party? Freeze it! Extra chinese food left over? Freeze it! LOL!
