Slice and eat!

Once completely cooled, wrap tightly in plastic; store at room temperature; rewrap as soon as done slicing as this will aid in moisture retention.
To freeze: Allow loaf to completely cool, slice, wrap tightly in plastic; freeze.

To thaw: Remove desired amount; place in refrigerator until soft, or leave on counter, or cook for a few seconds in the microwave, or toast slightly (this will dry it out).
