I like bread whether it’s made into a sandwich, dipped in egg and made into French Bread, or simply covered in butter and eaten alongside soup or dinner. A good loaf of bread is something that I enjoy all during the week. Yet most bread isn’t good at all or too expensive. This is particularly true of white bread. Either you buy it at the bakery which usually taste more like air than bread or you buy it on the bread aisle which usually has no yeasty flavor at all.
Enter Rhode’s Bake N Serve White Bread and like all of their frozen offerings it’s extremely easy to make. Simply take one of the frozen dough and place it in a greased bread pan and cover it with plastic wrap also greased and leave it out until it’s doubled in size. You can put it out on the counter or in the refrigerator or even rise it quickly in a warm oven. After it’s risen simply bake it for about 15 minutes at 350 degrees and you have yourself a loaf of bread that’s so good you could have made it yourself.
This is really good bread. Just the right texture that bread should have with just the right amount of yeasty smell and taste. I think it’ll be sturdy enough to make good or great French bread without falling apart and absorbing the egg mixture which is something the commercial bread doesn’t do well.
It even has a suggestion that you can use the dough to make pizza which I think would be fun. I like pizza but the frozen stuff has always been mediocre at best and my pizza would be far superior to those ones. If only for having the ability to put a lot more cheese on it. A lot more!
The only bad thing is that the loaves you make are on the small size so if you want a super sandwich you’ll have to make 2 of them instead or cut the bread from the side instead of the front.
If you like bread at an inexpensive price and don’t want to have to make it yourself then get Rhode’s Bake N Serve White Bread in the frozen aisle.

He’s been annoying me more and more lately and today I just couldn’t listen anymore and deleted all of the podcasts I downloaded which has been quite a chore over dial-up.
First it was him taking call after call from people who would do nothing but praise him. It’s fine if someone calls with another point and says a sentence or two about how great the host is or what the host has done to inspire the caller. Yet Mark Levin would take phone calls who went on and on and on about how great he was. Not just once or twice a show but four or five times and it felt like they went on forever.
Mark Levin has increased the number of times he’s mentioned how he’s done something first and how other shows have picked up on it. Like they needed Mark Levin to talk about the Constitution or the Bill of Rights before they had the idea to talk about it themselves. I’m pretty sure other conservative talk show hosts have thought about these things at the same time and didn’t need anyone’s permission to delve into these issues. Especially since Obama and his cronies are doing everything they can to make these two founding documents irrelevant.
Mark Levin has also talked more about his dogs lately. I hesitate to mention this because it’ll make me sound heartless, but I don’t care about his dogs. I also think him skipping out on Freedom Concerts that Sean Hannity has been promoting and attending is somewhat ridiculous. It’s sad that his dog is old and about to die, but I think the good that Mark Levin could do at these concerts is more important.
I also don’t like how Mark Levin takes calls from people who either want to make their liberal point and don’t care about talking to him, or people who want to challenge him on something but don’t have the ability to back up anything they say. Either Mark Levin gets upset and yells at the caller before kicking them off the air, or he tries to engage them in dialog (which doesn’t work) which leads him to getting upset and kicking them off the air. Either way, why bother with having them on? While it is amusing to hear Mark Levin yell at such mental midgets it’s not really constructive.
Today was the straw that broke the camel’s back for me. I was beginning to listen to last Monday’s podcast. It was last Monday because I download the week on Friday night as I’m sleeping and listen to all of the episodes on Saturday and Sunday.
Anyway, it was the beginning of the show and Mark Levin was going to have the same Muslim he had on before who supposedly is a moderate and the head of some organization here in the United States. This guy says all the right things about how he wants peaceful coexistence with other religions and how he is against terrorist organizations (such as Al Qaida and Hamas) and terrorism in general. The last time he was on Mark Levin, he and his callers were praising him as the kind of Muslim leader we need and how we need more moderate voices like him.
I wonder if this guy actually believes what he says or if he’s trying to lead gullible Americans into believing the myth that Islam really is about peace (when it means submission) and that it was hijacked by a tiny minority of extremists. Instead of the truth which is everything the Islamic terrorists are doing is written in the Koran and the Hadith, and they are encouraged by Mohammed and Allah to kill all infidels who are anyone who isn’t a Muslim. How Muslims are permitted to lie and deceive the infidels if it leads to them being able to take over their country or kill them as long as they are faithful in their heart. Either this guy is lying to us or he doesn’t understand his own religion which means that he’ll be killed along with the other infidels for being an apostate.
By the way, there are a few Islamic sects which could be considered moderate since they don’t want to kill or convert everyone. However, they are either considered apostates (people who were Muslims but who have converted and who are considered fair game for being murdered) or not Muslims at all who should be and often are murdered for calling themselves Muslims.
I wish that the reality were different and that there really is an Islam that is full of love and caring which has gotten manipulated by a small number who seek justification for their evil deeds. The sad truth is that Islam is evil and perpetuates evil and condones evil and finding one guy who will say otherwise doesn’t change this fact. Mohammed was a horrible human being who followed a god of hate, and those who follow in his footsteps invariably turn out to be just as awful.
I just don’t want to listen to some guy spew this crap about Islam and have Mark Levin praise him for saying the things he wants to hear because he doesn’t want to face the reality that Western Civilization is at war with Islam. A war we have to acknowledge and start fighting before all is lost and no, I’m not being dramatic. It really is possible to lose this war and I don’t want my descendents to live under Shariah without the ability to think for themselves and live freely.
When this film was announced I was pretty excited because I enjoyed Final Fantasy VII and thought it had a lot of potential to tell a story in a movie form. Especially a story that continued what happened after the game’s ending.
I don’t know whether it’s because I’m watching it in the English dub or whether the dialog truly sucks but I have 20 or so minutes left and I’m not sure I want to finish it. I’ve watched some bad anime but nothing as bad as this movie.
Sure, the main characters are all here but they don’t get a lot of time on the screen and the plot is confusing. There are 3 bad guys who look like a remodel of Sephiroth who want to find “mother” which is the remains of Jenova for a reunion and to bring back Sephiroth. There’s also an incurable disease that’s developed but the explanation of what it is and how it came about and how it’s spread was explained in such a way that I have no idea what was said.
I don’t mind a confusing plot as long as some effort is made at making it interesting. Most of the movie so far are motorcycle fights (there was one in the game) and while it’s neat to look at was it necessary to have two of them?
The slapstick comedy, or that’s what I think was attempted, from the two guys in Shinra were not used well. In the game their somewhat incompetent efforts to do whatever their boss Rufus wanted done was a needed contrast to the seriousness of the rest of the game. In the movie for some reason it just felt out-of-place.
The summoning of the monster also felt pointless when the 3 bad guys did something to kids with the incurable disease to do something. I did like seeing all of the heroes fight together but it did nothing to advance the plot at all. It felt like one of those side quests in a game but even those give you a reason for why you’re killing those bad guys.
Then Sephiroth came back when one of the bad guys touched the remains of Jenova and transformed. His hair grew longer and his body changed and, best of all, his outfit and weapon changed too which is probably why I stopped watching.
Even in a fantasy game there are rules that should be followed. Final Fantasy VII was an interesting world that combined technology with magic and swords. It’s what made it an interesting place to spend several hours. If you do something that can’t be done with the rules you’ve made then the game or book or movie feels less real. It feels stupid and it makes me stop watching.
Maybe the last 20 minutes will cause me to reconsider what I say here but I just wanted to vent about how stupid the movie is this far. I’ll finish watching it eventually and give a complete review and score then.
