French bread is like water, or maybe tomatoes, or even California's ubiquitous avocado. It's always just kind of hanging around, in salads, in soups, as the long delicious treat holding your sandwich together. But it's never really savored as something extraordinary and delectable on its own. So the decision to name today as National French Bread Day -- by whatever murky and mystical committee decides such things -- is a good one. Finally, we can appreciate the wonder that is the French bread (or "baguette," if you want to get all fancy about it) in the only way we know how: By providing you a gallery of the various delicious-looking ways it's used. Enjoy!
