What's for lunch?

Bread of course.

My family are becoming a bit sick of my obsession, crying "no, not MORE bread" every weekend, but how am I going to become good at this if I don't make lots and lots of bread? The major issue is that up until this Saturday, none of it has been that good really. Some loaves have been so so, some downright awful.

But the piece de resistance was created , thanks to Rose Levy Berenbaum's Bread Bible. I can't make a decent white sandwich loaf yet, but I can make the best tasting ciabatta I've ever had in my life. Go figure! Does this mean I can walk before I crawl?

A plate of antipasto for lunch and blueberry cream cheese braid for sweets. I don't know what they're complaining about.

I found you on Breadbasketcase's blog.
I LOVE your new kitchen, anyone would enjoy cooking and baking in such lovely surroundings.
I wish I could talk my husband into a beautiful new kitchen.

Hi kneadtobake,
Thank you. I LOVE my kitchen as well. It was a long wait but worth it. My husband decided that if I had the new kitchen, he needed to replace his 1968 Ford Utility with a new model,as a compromise. We're now broke, but enjoying great food and no mechanical breakdowns.

Pam, I tried your piadina. It was good. See the results on my bread blog at John Andrews in Knoxville, Tennessee
