(full disclosure: when the neighbor girls (ages 4, 7, and 8) sampled the East Texas Sourdough...they spit it out. NO JOKE! haha. My kids ATE IT UP!)
I froze the standard loaves. The cinnamon rolls were prepped then refrigerated overnight for Sunday morning. Before Mass, I left them out on the counter to warm and rise, and voila! A fabulously fresh breakfast treat.
I think I like the bread semi-frozen best of all! For a last-minute lunch, I put a frozen loaf straight from the freezer into the microwave (eh, I guess it's still helpful for somethings!) wrapped in a damp cloth for about a minute. The outside of the loaf was warm and soft, and the inside was still quite cold-- it was awesome. Cold dense bread... mmmmmmm. I really didn't think anything could beat fresh out of the oven bread. but wow.
