I really do enjoy baking bread. And not just the daily loaf, though that's an essential for my darling man, who dearly loves a few slices of bread with his supper each night. What I enjoy more than the daily loaf is baking a variety of other breads which can be served in different ways, and made into lovely work lunches for hubby to enjoy.
This past week I made another focaccia, but with two different toppings - Celtic sea salt, garlic & rosemary; and rosemary, olives and sundried tomatoes.
We eat this with almost anything! Now that we're even more mindful of the grocery bills, much simpler nutritious meals grace the table, and a delicious freshly baked focaccia instantly lifts a bowl of soup or a pot of baked beans to new heights. It's inexpensive to make, easy, and fun. Three great qualities in a home-baked bread!
I also made Cypriot Pita breads, as my son-in-law is Cypriot/Greek and loves anything I make him from his homeland...so these were a test run (which hubby and I gobbled up) and as they were very successful I'll now bake them for Ross, Blossom and the children.
I picked tomatoes, cucumber, and lettuce from the garden, opened a jar of home-pickled capsicum, and thinly sliced a small lamb leg steak as our filling.
