Have you noticed some brands and types of bread are approaching 5 dollars a loaf? I won't pay that price. As someone who remembers bread for 10 cents a loaf, and as someone who takes inflation through the decades into consideration, I consider 4 and 5 dollars for a loaf of bread, sheer greed!

I like Walmart's French bread. I don't taste the soybean oil in it. At a dollar for a full size loaf, I usually buy 10 loaves at a time and freeze them. The bread may be a loss leader for Walmart, but I figure if they can do it, so can other stores.


I make a little snack using this bread, and I really enjoy it. On French bread toast, I spread a liberal amount of neufchatel cheese that has been allowed to come to room temperature. Atop the cheese, I spread a layer of sliced, ripe olives. That's it! Simple, but very good, especially if eaten while the toast is still warm.

I've been slicing the olives with a small paring knife. Tonight, I tried something different. I sliced them using an egg slicer. Same results, it took about a tenth of the time. Glad I thought of this little time saver. If you're into doing your own pizza, using the egg slicer to slice olives could really come in handy.

A short while ago, someone submitted a tip about using a cheese slicer for slicing eggs. I thought that it was a good idea, but I had to laugh because I do the opposite. I use an egg slicer to slice cheese. I have made many cheese and cracker trays and this saves so much time cutting up the cheese. I take the egg slicer apart and just use the slicer part. Cut off a chunk of cheese and just press down and it is sliced in a few seconds.


I have also found an old egg slicer at a garage sale that has the wires on the slicer closer together so I can slice the cheese thick or thin. Just rinse the slicer in hot water and dry, easy clean up. Don't put it in the dishwasher though, it will rust.

I always use my egg slicer to slice black olives. It works like a charm!! Very quick and convenient for getting evenly sliced olives.
