What did you have for breakfast this morning?

Have you ever had a Boleo--pronouced 'Bow-lee-oh'? They are Mexican rolls that you can only buy at a Mexican store or bakery. They are large and have a wonderful texture.

My BFF CP got me hooked on them on one of my trips to South Texas to visit with her and her husband. They are a simple white bread that has a wonderful texture(I said that already didn't I?) and taste.

She found a bakery in Tulsa that makes them just about as good as any she's ever had. Of course the folks who have the bakery, are from Mexico, and could speak little English.

I like to slice mine in half lengthwise and toast them in my little toaster oven, then put butter, yes the real stuff, and some all fruit(gotta cut calories somewhere). Yum, with coffee and The Beverly Hillbillies about 5:30a.m. each morning. I don't eat one every morning. They are sorta my special treat.

We buy them by the bag full. I put them in sandwich bags and freeze them. They don't keep very long left out, but they freeze really well. I ate my last one this morning for breakfast. I was in deep grief the entire time I was enjoying this last one. It will be a while before I can get more--but you know what? We have quite a large Spanish population in the rather large city west of me where I go to work everyday. I think I'm going to do some investigating and see if I may have access to them here. Wouldn't that be absolutely wonderful.!!!

That's my new quest. I'm going to find out where I can pick up some Boleos. What kind of quest are you on today? A good quest gives us a reason to get out of bed.

Hi Lisa, I was a guest at my BFF CP's house, so I don't have a clue, however, when she gets back from her cruise(the dog) I'll get the address and let you know.

They are wonderful!!!
