baking bread


             I have not made fresh bread in probably well over three years. Ouch, thats a bit too long, especially for one bread lovin' gal like me.  I could live on that stuff if I let myself, although I'd probably add quite a few unwanted pounds in the process.  I just had one of those moments when I thought, you know what? I'm gonna make some bread.  This was simply the easiest and tastiest bread I think I've ever made and there's nothing better then that wonderful simple joy that comes after you know you've just made your own bread.

I used this recipe here.


bacon and butter beans
(serves 4)

2-4 slices bacon, chopped
2 tomatoes, chopped
1 can butter beans
1 handful of baby kale
salt and pepper to taste

In a skillet cook the chopped bacon until crisp.  Add the tomatoes and cook for a couple of minutes.  Pour in the can of butter bean, juices and all (this is what makes a wonderful sauce) bring it to a simmer. Add the kale and stir through until wilted. Taste for seasoning.  Add a slice of fresh bread for soaking up the juices and you've got a sweet side or little hearty snack.
