Fridays With Uncle Fred 8/09/2013

Updated: Friday, August 9 2013, 07:43 AM CDT

We started off the morning with a visit from Lezlie M. Gibbs.  She is the head chef at La Patisserie by Luxe Sweets.  She came to show us her take on New York’s Cronut (croissant-donut) craze.  She cooked up a CroBrio.  It’s combination croissant and brioche pastry.  Chef Lezlie says the early adopters of her CroBrio recommended more vanilla filling which she happily obliged.


We also talked about the Texas Back to School Tax Holiday.  From August 9 to 11 you can buy back to school clothing and school supplies and get a break on the sales tax.  As with any offer, there’s always fine print.  Click here to see it.


And finally we said goodbye to the creator of a number of classic TV icons.  Puppeteer Cosmo Allegretti has died.  He brought to life Bunny Rabbit, Mister Moose, Dancing Bear and other wonderful characters on the Captain Kangaroo show.  The Captain and his friends were breakfast TV staples in the 1950s and 60s.
