Pork BBQ...mmm, good.

As far as scientific studies go...John Oliver hit the nail on the head. I especially love the clip from Fox News about going to the gym (at the 40 second mark).

I polled my kids, we share the same view. Either snails or shrimp broiled in garlic, EVOO, a little pepper, some paprika. Eat the protein, then use some freshly baked bread to sop up the remaining sauce. An alternative is a Portuguese dish, shrimp in a spicy red broth. Or, for lovers of things that come from mother earth, some chopped baby bellos sauteed in oil, garlic, pepper and port wine. Eaten same as before - the bread to soak up the liquid goodness.

I used to make all kinds of great bread in my old bread machine (sourdough rye was my favorite), but I gave up bread (along with chips, crackers, bagels, etc) 6 years ago, for health reasons. Very hard to give it up at first, but now I hardly miss it. As for butter, though, I use it on everything. We can sometimes get homemade pastured butter from a farmer friend, and that stuff is fantastic. I cook with it, put it on my veggies, put it on all kinds of stuff. The whole anti-saturated fat thing is a bunch of nonsense, in my opinion. Margarine, most veg. oils, and anything with trans fat are the things you want to avoid........lots of evidence now that those things contribute to heart disease. If you really want to get a sick feeling, just read sometime how vegetable oil (and the other chemically-extracted jug oils) are made. Yuck.

I rarely have plain butter but I do have 3-4 pieces of bread every day with peanut butter on them. I am very healthy. I have had a full blood panel done several times a year for work and everything is perfect. Vitals, ECG, BMI all perfect. I don't think there's anything wrong with butter or bread. This is making me hungry. Time to start the oven to make my nightly frozen pizza.

When I was a kid, restaurants served baskets of hard rolls and dishes of butter pats on ice. I still love the taste of real butter on rolls, French bread, toast, etc.. Let the health police come get me. Eat what you want, die when you're supposed to!

I love bread... especially toasted bread. DW prefers wheat... I prefer white. DW likes her toast what I characterize as dried out bread... I prefer my toast medium brown.

We like peanut butter or butter... but sometimes when nobody is looking I simply take toast and dunk it for a two count in bacon drippings instead of butter...yum!

Swiss whole grain. Well toasted. Nothing on it. Very nutty taste.

Once in a while Italian ciabatta or crusty. A little butter, raspberry jam.

Sometimes nothing
Sometimes butter
Sometimes oil & vinegar
Sometimes ham & cheese
Sometimes caviar
Sometimes pate
Sometimes cream cheese, salmon, capers and onion

I could go on forever...

I can remember my mother periodically giving me a piece of white bread with butter and sugar on top, I loved it.

DW's family treat was some nice warm homemade bread dunked in pure Vermont maple syrup... she still does it occasionally to this day. I prefer ice cream with maple syrup drizzled on top.... preferably Grade B which is dark and has a strong maple flavor.

My bread has to be toasted, then slathered with mayo (vinegary). Add some Romaine lettuce, and several strips of $2.99 a pound bacon, for a classic BLT without the tomato.

My Moms homemade strawberry rhubarb jam.
She's 82 and she had me bring her to the field to pick strawberries yesterday. (They hide the bad berries in the bottom of the containers so I can't just buy them at the farmers market for her.)
My back aches today. Hers is fine.

I like a pat of butter spread lightly on warm bread or slightly toasted bread. Just enough to enhance the flavor of the bread, not so much that I am eating a lot of butter. I've never cared for good bread spread with jam or jelly - it is too sweet for my taste and I prefer to taste the bread.

New extravagance is baking our own bread. Our favorite is finely shredded cheese mixed into the dough and then rolling the dough on onion pieces. Then baking. I can't believe it's not butter or olive oil and cracked black pepper go well with it.

Another bread lover - usually bake it at home either in loaf form but often as pizza crust

Bread seems best suited to be a toppings delivery device and nothing beats Skippy - creamy, imo.

Every so often I just crave a good crusty baguette and olive oil (or butter). Pure comfort food. A local bakery makes fresh small-size baguettes daily, not that huge size that is bad the next day (except for French toast!)
