November 4, 2011

(MCT) - The other day I was sitting at a local bar catching a game of football with a friend. The bartender handed us a bowl of pretzels. Noshing on a few over a beer, I got to thinking.
I can't remember the last time I had a really great pretzel. Freshly puffed and temptingly aromatic, they're the ones with the deep brown sheen that _ if you're lucky _ you get still warm, the large specks of salt catching the light just so as they're slid out of the oven.
