This blog is dedicated to the low-carb menu challenge presented by Jimmy Moore. I'm living the Louisiana low carb lifestyle, where low-carb is the new way to go ! I live southwest of New Orleans, Louisiana....have three awesome kids. We are deep down in the heart of sweet Cajun Country, where we kick back and relax, go hunting, fishing, or make groceries! My doctor told me that my blood pressure numbers were getting too high, so I had to loose weight. She challenged me with ten pounds in three months. That was October 7, 2008. I lost 26 pounds !!! In February of 2011, I found that I had gained a few pounds more than I would have liked, weighing in at 170 pounds. I had to get back into the swing of living the low carb life again !! I am loving the 'low-carb' style and wish to contiue it . I exercise three times a week at the gym, and off the 'off' days, I learn to RELAX !! November 2011, finds me in different circumstances -- a new lifestyle, great community of friends and a challenge to keep that 45 pounds that I lost OFF. Feel free to read my blog, browse around, or just sit a spell!!

A "Moldy" Situation

My beautifully-baked bread machine bread got moldy...
but it wasn't an "old'y"

I did not put it in the tupperware container hot,
yet it had a lot of mold spots.

I am sad, but am glad
that I learned my lesson well.

Cut a few pieces, refrigerate,
and things will turn out swell.


ANY ideas on how I could have kept my beautiful bread machine bread from molding ?? I had it in a plastic tupperware bread container, and today, I opened it up, the bread was moldy, and I had to throw away a 1/2 of the loaf, which was really ONE loaf, cause I doubled the recipe !

I'm really sad.. LOL, but need to know what to do, to avoid the situation again. Thanks !


For Breakfast, I had Jimmy Dean Sausages and wheat bread.

For Dinner, I had Chef Salad with Dressing. It was a huge one so I 'll probably have the rest of it tomorrow.

Have a Blessed Evening

Hey! I guess you could slice it up and freeze it. Or next time, give half the loaf away while it's warm and fresh-people will love you! With a large family, I don't have to worry about things going bad because they get eaten very quickly.
I used to put most of the ingredients together in plastic bags ahead of time, then you can quickly put it all together when you're ready to start up the bread machine. I also think homemade bread is one of those things that tastes best if eaten right away or the next day. Anyway, good luck and enjoy!

Yo Bay!
I haven't a clue what to do about moldy bread. Isn't that the stuff that is used for penicillin? Might be healthy, but don't experiment on my recommendation, heh.

That aside, you look fantastic. Shall I say inspiring?

Because there are no preservatives your bread will spoil quickly.

You should use it up in a couple or days and/or freeze some slices.

It's actually a good thing. Ain't it nice to know that your bread has no artificial preservatives in it?

Yes, it IS nice to know. THanks to everyone for the suggestions/and comments ! I'll be baking bread again this weekend !

I'm in agreement about the slicing and freezing. :)

One other thing that I used to do with bread ... I would put a dry paper towel in the bag or container that held the bread. The idea behind that is that the moisture will be trapped by the paper towel and not the bread. That seemed to help some.

I have kept bread in the fridge to keep it from going moldy but you have to be careful to make sure whatever you store it in is airtight or it gets a bit dried out.
