I bought some croissants at a charming little French bakery this afternoon. I was thinking about making bread pudding with them in a few days. I bought five of them. Absolutely knowing I can’t bring croissants home without Ernie scarfing down at least one with tea or coffee. He loves their flaky, buttery goodness. Then I figured I’ll have four more of them to make bread pudding with later in the week.
I was so pleased with myself for stopping there on my way to another errand. The croissants were perfectly flaky and light – not at all like those slightly rubbery ones you see in the grocery stores on a regular basis. Figured I was saving time and thinking up a great dessert recipe in my head I’ll share soon. The rest of the afternoon I was focused on business and crossing a few more things off my to-do list for the day.
