So much carb dunking around these parts.
Although I’ve been on a soup kick for over a month, this is the first truly chilly week where soup feels necessary, and I’m digging it.
Check back with me in January, and I will very likely be digging it MUCH less. But, for now, lets proceed with all the bread and all the cheesy soup.
For years I’ve been a devoted Panera customer. If I’m going out to lunch, you can bet I’ll be at Panera about 90% of the time.
Then, just a few weeks ago, I went in and ordered my You Pick Two, requested a whole grain baguette on the side, and they said “We’re not doing baguettes anymore, but would you like a dinner roll?”
…no. I want a baguette. That’s why I’m here. That’s always why I’m here. Where am I? Who am I? Why don’t you have my bread?
I used to dislike apple-flavored things, or at least I thought so. I also thought I disliked the taste of wine, and wasn’t much for TV. Things change.
It turns out it’s the fake apple flavor that I dislike. Apple martinis? Nope. Apple candy? Noooo thanks. A packet of apple cinnamon oatmeal? Bleh.
Take some real apples (honeycrisp, preferably), peel them (at first I wrote “feel” them – hehe), chop them, then caramelize them with some brown sugar? Now we’re talking.
