Puzzle #18: 7xwords (Director's Cut)

Over on Malaika Handa's site 7xwords there's a very cool project going on: an attempt to create a 7x7 crossword puzzle with every possible valid configuration of black squares. Various constructors, both brand newbies and seasoned veterans, are all contributing puzzles. And today you can go and solve my contribution to the project.  As a way to help promote the project, and let's be real--just for fun, I've made an alternate puzzle with the same grid pattern. Hope you solve them both, and then go and check out the rest of the 7xwords puzzles if you haven't already.   Mmm, bread
