I have been craving a good PBJ on white bread, so I made some bread. I am not big on the bread here in Costa Rica. So on the good side, we don't eat much bread, unless I make it. So now I have had the first piece with butter and then I proceeded to my fold over PBJ. As you can see. This was a very easy bread to make. Try it for some really good white bread sandwiches. Sometimes you just gotta have it.
