Get some brioches from Trader Joe's. They're super expensive and probably very unhealthy, but they are amazing.

I recently acquired a 50 lb sack of flour and a pound of yeast. As soon as the containers to contain the flour arrive, I will open up that sack and go back to making (bread machine) bread most days.

(I'm afraid if I just open a 50 lb paper sack of flour I'll end up with a horrible mess. I need a concrete plan to contain the flour in something that closes more convincingly than a paper bag -- but plastic bins have been shipped, and should arrive by Sunday.)

BEWARE OF FLOUR BEETLES!

I'm not much of a cook, but a few years ago decided to start making crepes, which required flour. did not realize that you have to store it in either a sealed container or in a refrigerator. wound up with a huge flour beetle problem. I wound up clearing everything in the cabinet of everything edible and went on a flour beetle killing spree every day and eventually they ceased to exist.
