    No I don't think so.

    DH will usually pick up a tiger loaf or pane de casa on the way home about 3-4 times a week for us to have with dinner and if we have lasagne, spag bol etc I make a garlic bread. If we are having something like lamb shanks and have no bread we will just have some slices of normal white buttered bread.

    Not in this household. We have it with casseroles spaghetti ( the garlicvariety) soups or anything with gravy.

    Can't say my hips like it though!!

    FIL has to have bread with every meal!! His family definitely lived in poverty and my DH tells me that's why he does it. I will cook the biggest nicest meal for him with enough to serve him 3rds if he wants but will always just fill up on bread as he eats his first meal. DH has tried to get him to stop it as he is extremely obese but just he just won't. Also it's just the cheapest white bread you can buy.

    The bread in this house in nearly $12 for a half loaf lol not really a sign of poverty although we only tend to have it with soup or pasts, othdr than that it's as toast with breakfast or made into a sandwich for lunch.

    What sort of bread costs $24 a loaf? The most expensive bread I've seen is the $6 a loaf gluten free bread.
    (not being snarky, genuinely curious )

    Nope. We have a cob or a "fancy" bread with dinner all the time! It's a must with a roast veggies to soak up all the delicious gravy and worcestershire sauce. Mmmm.

    If we have forgotten the good stuff we use normal bread

    I wouldn't say it was a sign of poverty, although I do admit that when we are low on $$ I will bulk a meal up with garlic bread
