Even Dixie is intrigued by this big chunk of free bread!

I was walking Dixie down the street on Sunday around 5:30. We walked in front of Bagel Boss, where a worker was standing there at the sidewalk with a stack of bread to his right side. They were closing and that bread was flying out of the worker’s hands and into the hands of those passing by. Lesson? Want some bread? Closing time can be a mighty lucrative to linger in front of a bakery. Just a thought. I don’t even know how much their products cost, although I’ll be sure to make a return visit (this time, I’ll even pay).

Everything tastes better with maple. Period.

Anyhow, so I found myself with this massive round of bread. A sweet bread, with raisins spread out throughout. I tried it plain one day. Not bad. Another day, I thought hmmmm why not put on some local honey. It’s good for your allergies and pretty darn tasty too. Much better. Oh! How about add some icing? Another day, I took some powdered sugar and a bit of milk and whipped up some icing. Perfect. It was like a homemade cinnamon roll, without the whole battling the yeast beast thing. Finally, I decided to mix up the icing and add in a few drops of maple flavoring. Ding ding! We have a winner. Cause everything tastes better with maple.
