More . . . Life Without Facebook

After the last post, I simply can’t resist continuing the theme. There’s so much more time to do far more meaningful and productive things and activities. Such as: stopping at local purveyors for fresh and locally grown ingredients; taking time to prepare real food, from scratch; break bread with friends or family; light some candles; sit back and enjoy face-to-face conversation; laugh when the lemon squeezes in the wrong direction. Yes, that’s more of life without Facebook.

“Good bread is the most fundamentally satisfying of all foods; good bread with fresh butter, the greatest of feasts!” ~James Beard

… or in this case, good bread dipped in an emulsion of olive oil, balsamic vinegar, and fresh garlic.

Mmmmm! I love fresh hot-from-the-oven bread! I’m a total carb addict 🙂

That is a fine detailed, close up of the loaf of bread…cut. I have one bakery nearby that bakes half-way decent bread. I’d have to work up to baking my own! 🙂 I’ll look for basic “real food” items when I go to the store this morning.

Hey Diane…good to find you again. I just read your piece about Facebook..and what a time-sink it is..and couldn’t agree more. Nothing like fresh baked bread!

I have thought a lot about Facebook too and haven’t come up with an answer just yet. But it is time consuming. The bread looks delicious.
