WHEN I WAS A KID THAT OFTEN MEANT HOT FRENCH BREAD WITH BUTTER
AND SOME GOOD OLD LOUISIANA CANE SYRUP


So … while being a little under the weather and spending the day watching football, I made some yeast dough and fashioned a loaf of French bread (French bread has no milk in it and is usually a bit crusty) and baked a loaf for tonight.

It came out a bit smoother than I like (I should have left it rise once more for a few more hours) but it was still good hot out of the oven with hot cocoa.


French Bread and Butter on a Cold Night

FrenchBread


When I was little, the youngest usually got to eat the ends of the loaf filled with butter and syrup. It was almost like a little cup and we called it the “nose” and usually begged to have it even when we were older.

It’s going to make some good French Toast or pan perdu (French for "lost bread") in a couple of days … if there’s any left.

Yum! I've been on a pie kick lately. I've made lemon sponge pie, and lemon meriangue (sp?) pie. The kids helped with a couple of chocolate cream pies. Yep, that's what we did over Christmas break - we baked! :) (Not the crusts, though. I cheated and bought them already formed and frozen. I'll start to work on homemade crusts soon.

I saw you had some wonderful company over Christmas. Very cool. I hope your health stays strong, hon. Take care.

Ohj, me too! I actually wanted to make a lemon ice box pie with merengu when Mike, Eileen and the kids were here but we just didn't have time.

Do you make those where you're from? So easy and delicious. Condensed milk, lemon, sugar, eggs and I likea graham cracker crust.

Btw, the crust is SO easy from scratch. I now use my processor to make the crumbs and it is way better than shelf crusts (which are not that bad actually).

Maybe if you ever visit me again we can do one, or I can tell you how and you can watchg Mr. Ed and the boys' eyes spin. :-D

I'd love to visit you again. And, no, I think you posted about ice box pies before, but I've never had one. What don't y'all make with condensed milk? lol!

I would watch my mom make crusts, and I know it's not hard. Maybe next week when the kids are on break, I'll get them to help make some. They can be my food processors. (We used to have on a long time ago, but it broke.)

Take care, hon.
