RE: Is there a real bakery near you?
I've only got a minute.
When I first glanced at this topic, I glossed over the obvious... that while there isn't an old-school bakery here, there are two boutique bakers (including one, Luna Bakery, that takes the leftover grains from the local Terrapin Brewery and makes an out-of-this-world spalt bread!) and a Mexican one. I haven't been to the Mexican place, nor have I to Big City Bread (I can't eat sugared bakery products, so I have to be v-e-r-y careful in what I choose, if anything).
Right now my participation here is hampered by short library hours, but I am cleaning up my house slowly but surely in lieu of chattering away on my usual myriad of useless and pointless subjects (tee hee!). Let me try to mosey by the Mexican place... it's on Prince Avenue in Normal Town... and let y'all know what's there -- if I can refind this thread!
