Hearth bread ... mmmm

Bread is the indulgence I savor instead of sweets. Shown here is basic hearth bread, from Rose Levy Beranbaum's Bread Bible. Finished at last and ready for eating.

Fresh Choice closes its doors

Fresh Choice restaurant exterior
BiteClubEats: Where'd Fresh Choice go?
Amazing: Fresh Choice closes its locations in Santa Rosa and Rohnert Park (and everywhere else) and the only "coverage" consists of Yelp reviews and a post at BiteClubEats. Jonathan and I confronted a closed, darkened restaurant at the Santa Rosa mall and this morning I did a search on Google attempting to obtain answers.

Like the author says at BiteClubEats: "What’s strange is that except for a few emails from concerned diners, no one seemed to notice and there’s precious little chatter on the web. Can a chain really disappear without anyone noticing? Hmmmm…..." This, for a restaurant that we ate at for years and that Jonathan even worked at when he was new to the area.
