Give me bread

I love bread of all kinds. Here, we get small individual loaves much like French bread, made fresh throughout the day. It’s called a paozinho, little bread.

I usually have another favorite first thing in the morning: an almondshake, made fresh from almond milk (also made fresh from the almonds for this lactose-intolerant guy), frozen bananas and another fruit, almost always, papaya.

Then about mid-morning, sometimes, a paozinho toasted on the grill or, if I’m at home, in the pan. At home, usually with hot tea. At the padaria, sometimes, sometimes, with a cappuchino, which Laura needs to try here to get the real experience of the thing. So says Mike Benson who keeps trying to come back to sit at the counter with me.
