Little Victory

Had another little victory today. When I went to my local boulangerie and asked for a baguette the woman took one from the basket below the display cabinet -- the fresh stock. I didn't see that there was a basket of fresh baguettes. If I do see it, then I ask for a warm baguette. You have to look because they sell the old stock (4 hours old) before they put the fresh stock on display. Without asking, she automatically gave me a warm baguette (there were at least half a dozen cold baguettes). I had a big smile on my face when I popped a piece of the warm baguette into my mouth.

One of our bakers sells yesterday's bread if you don't watch her carefully. Warm baguette, lovely on a cold day, I usually have to go back for more!

When we do leave France, I'm sure that warm baguettes will be high on the list of things I miss.
