It’s so commonplace, so every day, run of the mill and yet so hard to make from scratch. I had found a baker who makes great loaf bread, it is light and lovely. It is not like store bought, but what I am learning is store bought ain’t that great. It’s cheap and convenient but it’s not great.

Store bought is also more complicated, more like a science project with words you can’t pronounce without sounding like a dingbat. The slices on the local bread, are thick and uneven, you really don’t make sandwiches out of it, but the garlic bread, french toast and egg in the hole make it so worth it.
