I used almost the same ingredients for both lunch and dinner today. Is that wrong? Bad luck if it is, its the end of the week in terms of food shopping and choices are limited. Both meals were good and it was the Ankle Biters turn to cook dinner so I’m happy.

We had our alternate Thursday guests for lunch and I didn’t have enough bread. I used my finger and ensuing time constraints to talk myself out of baking another loaf and bought a day old loaf of Phillippa’s green olive toscano. Oh my. That bread is superb even when it’s a day old. I must plan ahead and make some fancier breads. I’m stuck in a rut of banging out my standard 2 hour loaf. There’s nothing wrong with it, it’s great bread but why not go a little crazy sometimes?
