Baguettes!

baguetteI love baguettes, but I forgot all about them for so long.

Ok, they have their downsides – they’re not the easiest thing to fit in your shopping bag, and they go rock-hard if you don’t eat them within 5 minutes – but on the whole the French are to be applauded for this invention.

So this is my plan: Get up early tomorrow, go down to the supermarket, buy fresh (still warm!) baguette and a big lump of Edam, then go home and eat it all while reading the paper. That’s a fairly simple plan, but it is very civilised.

    Baguettes are GREAT. Oh the fun to be had. Whether you’re Cap’n Jack Sparrow, fighting to save the Black Pearl, or you’re Luke Skywalker with a Baguette that makes sweeping swooshing noises…. ” Luke…..Join Me…..I am your baker….”

  2. They won’t be much good for eating after that. That makes me sound terribly dull, doesn’t it?

    Might just about be useable for a recipe that requires breadcrumbs, but you’re right of course, not much use for anything else.

    LOL – no not dull. If you’d given me a long lecture on the plight of starving people, and how selfish I’d be if I didn’t eat the baguette as it was intended, then maybe I’d have reservations, but at the minute we’re cool 😉
