Wheat for softies

Honey wheat bread, The Bread Store

When I can find it, I love a crusty sourdough loaf. It’s not always the best for sandwiches, though. Gouging the roof of your mouth on a hard crust makes lunch not so fun. So, sometimes a softer loaf works better, and I particularly like The Bread Store’s honey wheat bread ($5.95). They bake it every day and slice it to order. You can request it on many of their sandwiches, but I usually take it home and layer it with ripe avocado and salt, or sharp cheddar and chutney. 1716 J Street, http://thebreadstoresacramento.com.
