I was a complete failure at setting up a visit and that really bums me out =\

I'm gunna try again eventually, and probably set it up as a solo trip because I'm awful at juggling lots of people's requests/ideas at once.

Bread is TOTALLY delicious.

I wish I had some right now.

Maybe I'll buy bread tomorrow.


I think bread would have to be my favourite all-time food. I could eat it for every meal. Or just constantly, without stopping.

No, why would I get fat?

It also makes you sandwiches!

And now, a question: Favorite bread type?


(Right now I'm going with pretzels. It's the only thing involving beer that I like.)

My favorites are the ones that get really moist and stretchy on the inside but have a crunchy crust. I dunno any of the names because I am a pleb like that.

Melon bread, without a doubt

(In reality, though, I really like this one: http://www.confiteriaamancay.com.ar/secciones/productos/images/img_prod/dsc_5965_sacramento_de_pollo_pop.jpg but I couldn't manage to find its name in English)

I can't pull up youtube videos anymore, but I did do an image search. Melon bread looks tasty!
Here's a description I found:
Quote:
They are actually bread buns covered with a layer of pastry, or cookie-like dough.

http://happyhomebaking.blogspot.com/2007/08/japanese-melon-pan.html

I will try to find a recipe that calls for cups of ingredients instead of weights, because I totally want to make this during the fall.


Leohan, that looks kinda like a croissant. I don't know that it is, but it totally reminds me of one.


So I've recently experienced puff pastry dough, and omg that stuff is fantastic. Easy to use, and it tastes good no matter what you do to it. (except thaw it in the fridge, which I recall someone doing once a long time ago. Sad sad gross dough.)

I also really like a mung bean bun that I had once upon a time, but am not sure what it was because the food market I got it from didn't do many labels in English. It looked like these Banh Cam, though:
http://kimpham5.blogspot.com/2012/02/banh-cam.html
It was tasty and soft inside, a little sweet but not too much. Perfect!

And then there are fritters. OMG fritters. They used to be available in New Orleans Square at Disneyland - giant balls of fried eggy dough too big to be held in one ten year old sized hand. (I can not locate pictures, and I don't know if they still sell them.)

<Sigh>

I miss bread. Took me a while to work out I was at least mildly intolerant to gluten and all the delicious bread I was eating was causing all sorts of unpleasant symptoms.

Throwing together a nice fresh loaf of bread over the course of the morning and having fresh bread for lunch was one of the better sides of working from home. Especially when I started chucking extra stuff in and ended up with something like black olive and caramelised onion bread, still warm from the oven, with soft cheese melting in to it...

I've been frustrated in the past by my attempts to bake beer bread (a package of pre-mixed dry ingredients, to which I'd add a bottle of beer). It would always turn out too dense for my taste.

There is new science on this. You may only be allergic to certain types of carb found mostly in wheats

make sure to check the 'use-by' date if you are using a packaged mix - beer bread uses baking powder to rise, and it can get old and lose its leavening power. or you could try just adding a little extra.

i love love love bread, but it does seem to undermine my weight-loss efforts. but home-made bread, fresh from the oven! i grew up in the wonderbread era, and was never very fond of bread, and then one day i came home from college and my mom had made this multigrain bread and i had it with white cheddar cheese and omg........


i should make that bread again. i have been making sourdough (when i feel i simply must have bread), because a friend gave me a starter...i should work out a multigrain sourdough.......

huh - melon bread looks like it's related to mexican conchas:

(oops - that image turned out to be HUGE - so i'll just link it:)

i wonder if there is a shared history, or if it is a case of parallel evolution.
