I was recently wandering the aisles of my favorite food stop, Trader Joes, when I spied a popular Christmas time treat. Panattone. Last year I spotted the very same bread at the very same store, but neglected to buy it each and every time I was there thinking I’d hold off until the following shopping week.
I think you know where this is headed.
I waited and waited and when I was finally ready to take the plunge, they were gone for the season. Nevermind that it was the week before Christmas and I had hoped to make panettone french toast for my visiting family. Nevermind that for me, the season didn’t end for at least another week or two. They were all gone. Period. I finally tracked a few down at my local Homegoods store (another favorite shopping stop of mine) and Christmas morning breakfast was saved.
