Yesterday, the weather was...brrr...freezing. We had flurries off and on during the day. Of course, just the sight of flurries brought a smile to my face.
Growing up in Hawaii, we didn't have snow, so just the sight of flurries makes me jump up and down with joy.
Walking home from the station, the flurries were a bit bigger than the airy ones I've seen and were pelting me, though it felt like being pelted with styrofoam beads.
Anyway, I wanted to show you this big loaf of bread which we got in Nagahama the other day. The store that makes it is called Ishigama (stone oven). Just to the left of the entrance is the 4 shelved stone oven. We were lucky to get a loaf, he only makes 100 a day. (When we went to Nagahama last year, the guy had sold out.)
This bread is delicious. Fluffy and chewy with a light crust. If the crust were thicker, it could pass off as french bread. A real bargain at 630 yen.
