of all the various mailing lists i'm on, very few i look forward to. most are just sales talk, hype etc. the only one i really look forward to, and the only one which i learn a lot every time i read them, is the king arthur flour's mailing list. the last issue that came into my mailbox talked about baking soft bread sticks.
that seems like another excuse to bake bread! but typical of me, went for 100% wholemeal.
i used basil (just love this herb!) and oregano as dried herbs and sprinkled olive oil and some sea salt before baking.
then cut them into slices (the scissors tip is a good one!) and baked them again for 5-10 minutes.
these are great for mopping up sauces, gravies, curries... or just slath on some jam/butter. or just eat it on its own!
actually come to think of it, if it's a little thinner, it's pizza bread!
if it's a little thicker and not cut into slices, it's like foccacia!
anyway, there'll be kids coming over to our house later this afternoon. let's see how they like it. let's see if i could bribe them to keep quiet and stop bumping my stuffs around... tall order i know!
