It's been a cool, rainy day in New Jersey today.
This morning I had to go out fairly early and without breakfast. When it was time to go home, I felt like having a bagel or crumb bun for breakfast so I stopped at the local bakery. Even though it was still early in the day, there was practically nothing left. There was only one salt bagel and no crumb buns.
The owner said that she had to open at 6:30 AM today instead of 7:00 AM because there were people waiting outside in the rain and she felt sorry for them. We decided that because of the weather, everyone wanted some freshly baked buns and rolls.
When I was younger, my father would stop and buy rolls for Sunday morning breakfast. I can still remember dunking a buttered roll in the coffee. The contrast between the cold butter and the hot coffee was so good. It has become a comfort food and would have hit the spot on this cold, rainy day.
