  •  I'm becoming a master at it :) (3+ / 0-)

    The aroma of home baked bread is here nearly every day.  We just bought this giant bag of flour from Costco last week.  It's so big that when I wanted to put the paper bag into a plastic bag so that no critters get into it, I needed a kitchen trash can sized bag.  It's hilarious.  It's so much cheaper to buy in bulk if you can do it.  I think this one was a 25-pound bag of flour, IIRC. And they had another one in the store that was a 50-pounder!

      There's nothing better than fresh baked bread. I lived in a hotel in Versailles for a few months and there was a bakery right across the street that made the best croissants I've ever had, before or since. I knew just when they'd be coming out of the brick oven and I'd be waiting in line every morning. I'd be back in the hotel room chowing down while they were still steaming. I think their secret was they used extra butter. They were too good to be true.

        or not that I know of, but I feel the same way about fresh bread and oh god I love croissants.  I'm not good enough at baking to make those but at some point I'd like to try more complicated things.  First I want to become a master soup chef though.

        A couple of times I've considered a no carb diet, and my first Lyme doctor believed in diet changes that help with inflammation, etc.  I'm willing to make a lot of different changes but there are certain things I feel like I can't do without.  Bread and butter, tea and milk, cheese.  I'd have a really hard time cutting those out of my diet completely.  It would feel like cruelty.
