Hubby plays "old man volleyball". Every week, pre-game, all the men folk gather round the picnic table to eat and drink and talk manly things.
This has been going on for 20+ years, and as cute as I think it is...it means I need to make an extra something during the week for him to bring.
As we are a small family, two loaves are a bit much. Normally I would freeze some, but I recently did a bunch of freezer cooking...and had no room to spare.
I cut up an entire loaf and sent it to volleyball with my grown man-child.
From what I understand, it was a HIT!
There was none left when he came home.
So very glad I kept some for us!
