Half slices, in stacks of 3 each (portion control), ready for wrapping and freezing.

Bill,

Do you do anything special when freezing your bread?

I always have problems with ice crystals forming, even with short term storage. I have always blamed it on the self defrosting feature but, I am not sure.

Wrap portions snugly in Saran type wrap then put in Pepperidge Farm plastic bread bags. I like rye toast. I prefer to wrap 1/2 lb chunks in Saran wrap and then in aluminum foil. We remove the plastic wrap and reheat the chunks in the oven (first in the aluminum foil and then naked to recrisp the crust).
We have a manual defrost freezer.

Put a strawberry/ruhbarb pie in the oven that my mom's group made at church. I fell asleep, very well done, crispy pie.

Bummer, well, it's ruined. Send it to me, and I can properly dispose of it.

I am pretty sure you would not like this one. The ruhbarb was so dehydrated that it's almost non existant.

I hate when that happens. Well, at least you got a well-deserved nap, SB!

Made some rum napoleons for my husbands office.
The pieces turned out pretty huge, so good luck on the eating (they'll all be covered in pastry cream).
I also, totally not on accident, made a untraditional, artistic, abstract chocolate pattern on top :p
