Best Thing Since Sliced Bread!

 Most of us have heard the saying, “That’s the best thing since sliced bread!” What do you think is actually the best thing since sliced bread?  Why am I talking about this? Because tonight’s post is inspired by a wordpress writing prompt. I decided to try.

So this one takes some thought but for me not too much.  For me this is a rather simple answer that goes back to my time living at home or when I visit my parents. To me “The best thing since sliced bread!” is hands down my mom’s cooking. For me there is nothing better. I grew up on her delicious food that she cooked every night for the family.  Over the years I have noticed that it doesn’t seem to matter how much I practice it just never seems to be just right unless it has been made by her.   Some of my absolute favourites of hers has always been her fajita , homemade spaghetti sauce, Shepard’s pie, and chilli. That’s just to name a few, there are many more.  Holidays and meals just are never the same without her delicious cooking on the table.  So what is “The best thing since sliced bread!” for you? share in the comments below

  1. The best thing since sliced bread reminds me of my strawberry shortcake that my husband’s mother taught me how to bake. Everytime my family and I have a family gatherings they request for me to bake one.

  2. lol… I can’t eat too much gluten and grew up in a culture without sliced bread, so can’t really relate… I suppose if we are talking about stuff that we human invented… to me… probably the internet… connects us far and near (for better or for worse!)

  3. Nice! We had Shepard’s pie last night for dinner 🙂
    Eh, the phrase: “Best thing since sliced bread” was always odd for me. Never really liked it.

  4. My mom grinds her own wheat and bakes bread herself. she used to make sour dough when we lived in CA (can’t make it in NC, it doesn’t taste the same. something about the air). Personally I think the best thing since sliced bread is bread pudding… use the heels of the bread and some fruit and milk, cinnamon, spices, etc. and WOW. so good. especially with some cream or ice cream on top!
