OK, I'm confused. They just set up Remote Loading in our photo center, so I could do this now and I thought it worked since I could see it. What am I doing wrong? I thought the point of remote loading was that I could I paste the image URL on other forums (at least that's what it said). Am I missing some step?

The best piece of bread I had was in Canada. In high school my French class went to Quebec during the Winter Carnival and it was -17 degrees below 0 much of the time. We always wore thermal underwear under our jeans--I was perpetually cold. We took a bus ride out to some place (this is in 9th grade, so I can't remember the name of the place) where there was this huge mound of snow and ice created by a small waterfall*. Anyway, along the road we stopped at this bakery; a cozy shop with wood floors that creaked and an aroma that warmed my frozen bones immediately. We all had one slice of this warm, fresh bread slathered with a type of apple butter. It was simply the best piece of bread I've ever had and I've thought of it often. I'd go back for more, but I'd never find the place.

*I do have pictures of this snow mound--it's very well known.

Wow. That sounds... delicious. Have you ever had a beavertail (http://hamfisted.net/pictures/2004/grouse_grind/images/3132_beavertail.jpg)? Looks horrible, but boy...

And 17 below zero - Fahrenheit or Celsius?

Thanks....

Now I'm longing for the baquettes I was getting when I used to travel to France on business.

In Dallas, they come close at a couple of places (Whole Food and Central Market) but it's just not the same. I wonder if Empire Bakery is still in business?

Speaking of bread products - bagels, real New York bagels.

No, no, no. New York bagels are horrible. They steam them and they get all puffy. You want Montreal bagels. They boil them and they stay doughy. Like a good bagel. [-(

Same thing happens with doughnuts. Krispy Kreme is too fluffy. You need a good, dense Tim Horton's doughnut.

Unless someone has messed with the recipe, a standard New York bagel is boiled before they are baked (at least they were when I was living on the Island).

Fahrenheit, sorry. A little more than -25 degrees Celsius. I remember that being the temperature at night when we had to go view the ice castle where they have the International Ice Sculpture contest. People had these long horn-like things filled with liquor. As we were teenagers, and this was 1980, we had our own ways of dealing with the cold. The view of the St. Lawrence River from the Chateau Frontenac (sp?) was very pretty as it was mostly frozen; people said to come back in the spring, though, for an entirely different view of the city. I liked Quebec very much even though the guys in the "Artist's Alley" were a bit too friendly. [-X

It was the coldest week of my life, but that bread was ambrosia.

Is a beavertail something like a flat cruller? It looks like it has cinnamon embedded on it. Or is it more like the fried dough that we either put tomato sauce or cinnamon and powdered sugar on and serve at amusement parks and fairs? I can't quite tell.

I can't go to bed tonight and have to leave at 3:30 a.m. for a bike ride event, so now I'm really craving bread.

:D Maksutov, I just knew you were going to find it. I'm so tired I didn't even want to search, but Montmorency Falls is the place, although my picture--wow, we just had a rattling thunder clap, my whole apartment shook and car alarms are going off--was on a cold, gray day. My picture makes it look bigger, too. Thank you for searching.

The women are OK but the main thing is Subway is coming back!!! Many new Subway restaurants are opening up again!!!! I have been buying Carrefour bread for the past four years to try to emulate Subway sandwiches bu the real thing is returning!

If it's only women Stockholm is the place. If bread is your thing go where Subway is!!!!!!! :)

And I thought Thailand was the place for women...hmm. I think you must be bread-deprived in Brazil if Subway's bread makes you ecstatic, but their bread is better now, at least where I am, because they have to compete with Quizno's, which had a variety of breads before Subway. You would REALLY like the Subway I go to...there's six choices of breads now.
Quizno's is a meatier version of Subway. It's also a little more expensive, but they put a lot more meat in their subs.

Oh, for you Northeasterners...I had a Subway today while volunteering at this bike shop, but before I left I asked everybody, "Does anybody want a grinder?" I just regressed to my native colloquialism and nobody knew what I was talking about. "What's a grinder?" they all asked, and they stared at me as if they were suddenly looking at some martian who just arrived.

Steamed bagels are a perversion. Unfortunately, in the DFW area I have yet to find a bagel that lives up to what I used to eat in New York. Closest they get here is Einstein Brothers but they don't have salted bagels (plain bagel with kosher salt). What's even worse is what they call bagels at Krogers and Albertsons - no amount of cream cheese makes them palatable.

Oh well...I'm spoiled. I miss both the bagels and pizza they had in New York.

I have a cute story about a squirrel that escaped with a baguette from La Madeleine.

La Madeleine - ok, I forgot about them - they have good bread. There is one other place in the area, if they still exist, that has good bread - it's a little bakery in Grapevine owned and operated by a La Madeleine defector. That reminds me, I'm overdue on my monthly La Madeleine lunch with a female friend of mine. Quiche, French Onion Soup, and bread. That's what I always get.

It's after 2:00 in the morning and I'm hungry and the fridge is empty. Bummer.

Me too and I can't go to sleep--it's getting near time to leave. I've had to pull an all-nighter and my stomach is grumbling. What's open-McDonalds? Not even.

My baguette story: One day I was driving down a residential side-road that came up behind a La Madeleine's (pseudo-French restaurant). I was in a cranky mood and thinking about work when all of the sudden I saw something moving across the road, but it was such an odd shape that I couldn't make out what it was. As I got closer I could see that it was a squirrel that had raided the La Madeleine dumpster and was booking across the road with a foot and a half long baguette in its mouth. Picture a fat Fox Squirrel running with a baguette perpendicular to it's body. It was so hysterical and he ran up the tree with it as if he had just snagged the ultimate prize of the day.

It was probably much more amusing to see, but it made me smile for the rest of the day. I can't draw very well, but I started thinking up children's stories about a family of French squirrels in Houston. I did have a wild "pet" squirrel here for a while that would climb up my apartment wall and look in my window until I would come out and put sunflower seeds in her dish. They are demanding little creatures.

La Madeleine's had good soups.

A beavertail is some sort of dough, covered in cinnamon and sugar (or anything, really) and then deep fried. So unhealthy, and so good.

And yeah, -25 is pretty cold. -17 isn't. I've walked around in short sleeves in -17 degree weather. :wink:

Now New York pizza, that's good. And I'm sure that bagel place I went to has gone out of business by now. Serves them right. :)
