Where does friendship end...

Did i peak your interest?? Friendship end? Your thought might be what did Suezi say to have a friendship end? Nope I did nothing but...BAKE!Not sure if you can tell what that lovely picture is. It is two starters of Amish Friendship Bread(that's right 2), the recipe that you send with your starters to your friends, and a finished Amish Friendship Bread. It makes me laugh almost out loud that it has the word Friendship in it's description. I am on my 3rd batch of this stuff which means I have given out 9 starters to my friends. Now you may think not so hard. Well, i am here to tell you it is HARD! I for one don't have that many friends that want to take on the 10 day process, let alone bake. Plus it takes on a pretty fermenting smell which grosses some light weights out! I am almost ready to start a stand in front of the grocery store!
My friends see me and start to run. Family members turn their backs!
I have two starters going right now which means in a few more days I will have 8 more friends that I need to find to give these starters to! Needless to say I am RUNNING out of friends people!
I am not going to keep any starters for myself. I am done and don't want to see another Amish FRIENDSHIP Bread for a couple of years. Which brings to mind this little thought...the Amish. Aren't they a small community? Don't they run out of friends? Seriously, how do they keep this going? Don't they get tired of eating this stuff? Let alone the calories that are in one loaf of bread!
I am now resorting to my blog friends. Any of you interested? Live in southern Orange County? Heck I would drive anywhere in Orange County to get rid of the stuff. Let me know. Please don't turn your backs when you see me comin!
Off to cut a slice of friendship bread and remember when I did have friends! LOL!

That stuff is delicious but such a pain. I couldn't give mine away either and NO I don't want any. I'm on the east coast anyway, so feel free to stop on by :)

Thank you so much for the laugh! I've done the friendship bread twice in my life. Once when Rae was in about 3rd grade and the second time was just about 3 months ago. Delicious, full of fat, and really not that friendly of a thing by the time you get to round 3 or 4. But for some reason Enemy Bread just doesn't sound as appealing!

This stuff is the BEST!!! If I were close to you I would do it in a heartbeat.

Wish I lived close to you as I would love a starter. Louisiana is too far away, UNLESS the stuff mails well.

I'm new here, and completely missed this. however you can freeze it :) When I get tired of it, I put it in a freezer ziplock bag and save it for later!!!
