You may be surprised to learn, as I was, that November 17th is National Homemade Bread Day. Bread has been a staple of our diets for almost 6000 years!

Some great ways to celebrate National Homemade Bread Day:

  • Make some bread!

  • Learn about breads from all over the world! Naan, pita, baguettes, and fry bread are all delicious types of bread!
