In Search of a Decent Baguette—Cherchez Le Pain!

A Reblog for this Friday. The lack of a decent baguette at Wegmans has prompted me to revisit this blog post! Enjoy the rerun!

About Catherine

Far from perfect, but enjoying life as a non-perfect and flawed individual at 60 years young. I'm still wondering what I'll be when I grow up! The characters in my life's screenplay include my better half. He is a refined Frenchman who grew up in Paris and summered in St. Tropez. I grew up in Long Island and summered in Long Island. I am not refined. My three grown children are also a big part of my life. For their sake, they happily live where their careers have taken them! But I can still mother them from a distance!
