Just found out that after nearly 50 combined years of serious bread consumption, we never knew the little tabs that inevitably get tossed to make way for a half-assed knot serve a purpose. Each color corresponds to the day of the week the bread was baked! Like we needed to add to our stockpile of neurosis and random facts.
Even better, you don't have to cut out a rubric and stick it on your fridge under your snack-deterring Kirstie Alley magnet: The colors are alphabetized. Maybe it's Saturday and you've never wanted a turkey club more in your life but you've indulged in too many gin gimlets. Can't tell if your bread it moldy or stale? Just remember that if your tab is red or white you're probably good to go.
The more you know!
