In the meantime, I promised to blog a bit about bread. I posted one of my favourite quick bread recipes as the ROM for March, and promise to post my best-ever French bread recipe, as an homage to my infatuation with all things francaise. HOWEVER.
Let me startle and amaze you by recommending a store-bought loaf. Yes, I did say store-bought. This is beautiful crispy-on-the-outside, soft-and-tender-on-the-inside Calabrese white from the local Save-On Foods. Yum. I served it alongside a platter of steamed clams that four of us DEMOLISHED as an appetizer. Sadly, not a clam left standing.

(No, seriously - I will be posting it in April - this one definitely deserves Recipe-of-the-Month status).
*My family has an ongoing joke about clams, provoked by Johnny Hart's series of BC cartoons about clams published in the seventies. Still can't talk about them, serve them, dig them or think about them without chuckling. Enjoy!
