I have a problem, personally, with it being OK to go out and purchase a $15 slice of toast. I'm not saying I never do it, but I'm saying I think it's a problem. I'm an enormous fan of the artisanal bread movement, but when they'll sell you one slice of toast with some avocado on it for the same price, or even more frequently, a higher price than the entire loaf, that seems excessive. Toast is SUCH an easy and fun thing to make at home, and when it's done well it's impressive (as you've seen) and extremely comforting. I hope you'll try this recipe and find the joy in sharing a meal at home and having people feast on your fancy toast!
