Erica was given an Amish Friendship Bread starter by one of her visiting teachers a few weeks ago, which turned into her making 4 starters which she kept some of, which turned into her making 4 more starters which she kept some of, etc, etc. One day a few weeks ago there were probably 14 bags of starters on our kitchen counter. I have had the thought for sometime that it shouldn't be called Amish Friendship Bread, but Amish HATRED Bread, because it requires the person you give it to unsolicited work and toil for the next 10 days. I voiced my opinion about this many times while Erica was in the thick of it (as I voice my opinion much too often when it comes to Erica for some reason), and so one evening she brought me this.

I despised myself as I mixed it each day and added on the 6th day and bought pudding for the 10th day. The real kicker is that it is just so yummy!

I now have 1 starter left to giveaway. Anybody want some Amish Hatred Bread?

hahahha - LOVE it and love the fact that I have a frozen 'starter' sitting in the back of my freezer because I don't want to 'toil' over it for 10 days - hahahha

hahhahahah! I laughed so hard when I read this. Hatred Bread. Very fitting. I always saw these bags at peoples houses and I did not understand how in the world that liquid-y crap could make bread. I didn't know you had to keep adding ingredients to it until yesterday when I read the instructions. It makes more sense now.
