I'm on a Quest!

Okay, you can feel free to tease me, as I'm sure this is entirely pregnancy craving related, but I really must have some real French bread!

I'm not talking about the big loaves you can pick up at the mega mart that are soft all the way through including the crust. I'm talking about shatter when you cut it with a knife sending crumbs flying off your cabinet and all over the floor it's so crispy on the outside, melt in your mouth like cotton candy it's so light and fluffy inside, French bakery baguette!

Granted, I've only ever found these one place...that was Paris. For some reason I've never found it's equivalent here in the states. American French bread is good. It tastes like French bread most of the time, but it just doesn't have the same consistency. It's usually chewy on the outside and pretty dense on the inside.

I'm going to proceed to try the baguettes at every bakery in Northwest Arkansas until I find something at least close. *sighs* It's going to be a terribly tough job, but someone has to do it!

Oh, and I'm also going to expand my cheese horizons. :-D I love cheese, but I never experiment. I always buy the same thing. I've decided to try a new kind of cheese every time I can get to the gourmet section of the supermarket from now on.

Today I cheated a little. It wasn't really a cheese I've never had. Actually I ate it pretty often when we lived in Denmark, but this particular one had dill mixed in. YUM!

It was Boar's Head Cream Havarti Cheese with Dill. Feel free to drool. I know I did. :-D It was scrumptious!

If you try the drunken goat cheese, let me know... although you may wanna wait a few months...

Mmm drunken goat cheese sounds promising! ;) Yeah, I think waiting would be an excellent choice.
