While waiting for a table at a local restaurant, we wandered in to a building that had been a breakfast restaurant that went out of business to see what the new place that had opened up was. Turns out it is now an artisan bakery, and they had just finished their first day of business. They had some leftover loaves of ciabatta, and offered us one to take home.
Pastry and Bread
I grew up in Oklahoma, where it was easy to find “Texas Toast” in any grocery store. This thickly sliced soft white bread makes, in my humble opinion, the best french toast. I’ve never seen Texas Toast in Colorado, so I embarked on a quest to make my own, because french toast made with wimpy skinny slices of bread just depresses me.
