For the science fair at school this year, Paulie decided to turn our dining room into a mold lab. Few things make my skin crawl like intentionally watching bread turn from green to white to orangish jelly, but that's exactly what we did. I loved seeing him work through an experiment in such an official way, recording his question, hypothesis and conclusion.
Homemade bread after 3 weeks:
Health food store bread after 3 weeks: (yes, it's gross, just imagine if it were in your dining room still!)
Does it freak out anyone else that the regular store bread remains like an immaculate piece of cardboard after 3 weeks of sitting in my dining room? (This is not taking into account how long it spent on the shelf at the grocery store. Blech!)
The findings: the health food store bread and homemade bread are actually food, edible material; the regular store bread, well, it flatlined.
