I don't see the problem

There is NO flour shortage- at least that's true for Canada

There is however a supply chain constriction on the number of small bags going to grocery stores. Bakeries have no problem getting the big sacks of the stuff.

Tons of flour - not so many small bags to put it in

So using flour isn't wasteful- it's just another thing we can do now that we have more time and it might even help cut back on shipping trips

Also, do they think everyone is just throwing out all the starter/sponge they cut off whenever they feed? I would hope some people bake it anyways. I do. It still makes nice sponge for good bread

I prefer quickbreads. Give me a muffin or banana bread any day over some plain bread. Fark that doughy mess.

Ah, but leftovers are often well suited to becoming sandwiches

I usually eat at the work cafeteria but now I'm working from home. Freezer is full and I'm eating well with very few grocery runs.

Get two suppers and a lunch or two from each meal we make - and fresh bread goes well with things like stews and makes sandwiches possible

Bread is a philosophy and way of life. Some people follow the leavened path while others don't.

Now's not really the time to experiment.  Sure you can just go get another bag of flour, but is is worth it?  Make good use of what you have and be frugal right now.  Try making a normal loaf of bread and work your way up if you really want to bake bread.

Baking bread is what humans do when they have to stay home. It's history people.

....created a sourdough starter seven days ago and the first ball of dough is rising now.
I'm part of a trend!

I bake homemade bread almost daily.  It's tastier, better, safer and healthier than that nutrient free crap you get in stores.

To be fair, if you're a Fox 'News' devotee most things are difficult.

Bake my own sourdough, yup, I can do that, nice slicing loafs or baguettes.

But there's this bakery down the road, they do it better. They're what you call professionals.

Just a couple of bucks, and no mess.

Easiest bread to make yourself? go to the grocery stores bakery and ask to buy the raw dough

Found this link in another fark thread. It has directions for making and maintaining a sourdough starter using small amounts of flour:

Typically once a week here, but only because we don't eat the bread quickly enough to justify more frequent bakes.  I make a semolina loaf for my daughter's lunches, and just finished up the first small loaf of black bean rye from the weekend.

Also have two different sourdough starters going.  One's a homegrown, the other is the Carl Griffith Oregon Trail starter.

True, I'm just having a biatch of a time getting even those large bags from anywhere.

Unpopular opinion: sourdough is the worst kind of bread.
