You ever been to a bar and ordered pretzels?  I don’t mean the kind that sit on the bar getting sneezed on for days at a time, I mean the kind that shows up with earthy brown mustard or some cheesy beer dip and carries with it the warmth of the oven they just came from mere minutes before you eat them.  Well, I have…  and they are awesome.     🙂 I started the day with the question “What kind of bread have …
