But can you get bacon doughnuts?

I can.

Though honestly, I've never been compelled to try them.

Mr 'bert,

As a southerner I take some minor level of pride in my ability to
1. Turn cuts of pork into a myriad of delicacies.
2. Execute #1 FROM SCRATCH.
3. Voraciously consume items from #1.
4. Shoot anyone who claims that the south is not the king of items in #1.
5. Hold a grudge till the Rebs defeat the Yanks.

So there. :P

Y'all gotta salute that #1. Specially when the damn carbine's loaded...

(note to self: Damned Yankee makes a good argument. Caution AND heavy firepower required prior to any further skirmish.)

I just went to the bread bin to make a sandwich, and the bread was moldy. So I am off to the deli to get a ciabatta.

Don't forget a little capicola†, some provolone, and a nice whole grain mustard to go with that.

This was one of my fist "make your own" pork ideas. Then I decided there are somethings you just don't want in your house.

nothing - I routinely scrape off the mold and give it to my children. In fact I've just done that very thing in order to serve up baked beans on toast for the blighters.

Oi. Edna.
Look; you might thing that we Brits can't cook or make snazzy cold-hot-cold drinks, but at least we make full use of our alphabet. Mould has a 'u' in it. We simply don't tolerate slovenly colonial misspelling you know. I expect to see a distinct improvement, startin 2morro. k? Gr8t!

While I am in physical pain from it, I agree with Mr. K. It is hard enough for me to make out what he is trying to communicate. I have no CPU cycles left for decoding teenage-girl-speak (what my son calls it, and he is 12).

Bad Mr. 'bert, Bad.

The worst bread in the world (IMHO) is in Thailand.

Its sweet. Not like Brioche or other sweet breads but like white sugar added to cottony Mothers Pride ( a nasty bread brand in UK)

You buy a savoury sandwich and take a bite and its disgusting. You throw it at a soi dog and they are not too keen eating it.

You end up eating barbecued kitty on a stick from a hawker stall and risking your intestinal life.

Good peasant bread in Greece and Turkey.
