Food blog???? How ‘bout “Life Blog”??? Yup, that’s what my home on the ‘net is and was always ‘sposed to be. A spot where I’m able to “park” my brilliantly(?) random ideas so that retrieving them at some time in the future becomes a possibility!!! Anyhow……..on to the subject at hand, which is: What’s for supper tonight? Since time is something I have a tad more of (at least, that’s what I’ve been told), with retirement now being a few years old, bread baking is a ‘must’. Tonight is homemade chicken noodle soup with a bread that I made when the boys were still at home. It’s what we simply called “meat & cheese bread”. Usually it was my basic white bread dough, rolled out into a rectangle, ‘shmeered’ with a light/sparse layer of yellow mustard, baked ham slices (thin and blotted dry w/ a paper towel) and shredded Colby cheese (not a lot….again, a sparse layer). Roll the dough up from a long edge and pinch/seal well. Let rise, slash the top and bake. Wha-la……an all in one, easy to eat “sandwich”!!!! This time, I used the Artisan Bread in 5 Challah dough recipe that is a richer dough. Some visuals……………….
The aroma is awesome!!! Sorry, but it is. So, that’s what’s happening here. DH is busy bottling yet another batch of wine. Hmmmmmmm, bread, cheese, ham, wine……yup, life is good!!!!!! ‘Til next time…………….
