The Rosemary Sourdough Was A Mistake

I admit it. The rosemary sourdough was a mistake.

My wife was recently making split pea and ham soup from scratch. She makes a really good one, and it was a cold crappy day, so this was going to be a nice thing. We always get a fresh loaf of sourdough with it, usually from Whole Foods because they have a pretty good one of those. We tried to do that this time, but I realized after I was walking back to the cart that I had grabbed the rosemary sourdough instead of just sourdough by mistake.

We thought about switching, but I’d already taken the fresh loaf out of the display box and bagged it. We debated whether or not I could just unbag it, put it back, and bag up a fresh loaf of sourdough. We waffled for a while, and decided to just go ahead anyway…until we noticed that someone had taken the last loaf of sourdough. Rosemary sourdough was our only option at that point, and it was my fault. My wife remarked that she hoped it didn’t taste that different.

It did though.

I wasn’t bad, it just wasn’t as good as the ordinary sourdough. It still worked, but it wasn’t the same kind of treat.

It was a mistake.
