Last Friday I went shopping for the ingredients to make this wonderful Coconut Croissant Bread Pudding (yes, you should click the link, it's a fabulous recipe). As the name of the recipe implies I needed croissants.
There were no croissants in the bakery! What to do?
I checked the bread aisle... Nuthin'.
I checked the frozen food aisle... A 4 pack cost $4 and they were small and I wasn't about to spend $8 on frozen croissants.
I had resigned myself to driving across town and entering every store until I found big, flaky croissants.
Sighing about the wasted time I made my way back to the dairy section, passing the deli meats. Where they make sandwiches... Some on croissants...
So I asked the guy at the meat counter if he could sell me 6 croissants. Which he did- for 50 cents each.
If I may illustrate... Badly as I am not a good artist with pen and paper and even less of one with paint...
