French Country Bastard!

No, it's not an insult, it's a bread.

As much as I love food, I promise this will not become a food blog, but I couldn't help but share my latest grocery store find.

"Batard de Campagne" is the traditional crusty farm bread that was traditionally made in the French countryside. Literal translation: "Bastard from the Country". A "Batard" can be made from any type of dough. It's similiar to a wide baguette, but it's not as long, and the loaf is shaped slightly like an American football.

No, I would have used "Biaaaaaatch"! He likes that word better.
