Through some sort of odd tag team collaboration, Kati and I have put together a Bread On Tuesday post! Her bread. Her photo. My...oh, I don't know...at least I'm writing this up! Working on both computers: Henry Desktop who did not have coffee spilled on him, but is old and slow, and Henrietta Laptop who is still doing wacky things. For example, Henrietta's space bar launches you to some unknown place that she has kept hidden before. Her backspace key doesn't backspace, but goes to another window. Yeah. It's fun. But she is better than she was yesterday when we had no keyboard function at all, so we are holding off on a doctor's visit (and accompanying fee) until we've given her ample time to dry out. Hoping...
On to this week's wonderful bread...
Kati has been making this luscious rosemary bread for several years now, long enough for people to request it when she's baking for a dinner or party.
Want to make friends and influence people? Forget Carnegie...just learn to make this bread and give some away!
(Makes 2 loaves)

Please DO sprinkle with the salt in Step 7 (unless your diet prohibits it, of course). We use coarse kosher salt instead of sea salt, but the salt really gives that outer crust the right touch.
And they [the disciples] said to Him,
“We have here only five loaves and two fish.”
He said, “Bring them here to Me.”
Then He commanded the multitudes to sit down on the grass.
And He took the five loaves and the two fish, and looking up to heaven,
He blessed and broke and gave the loaves to the disciples; and the disciples gave to the multitudes.
So they all ate and were filled, and they took up twelve baskets full of the fragments that remained. Now those who had eaten were about five thousand men, besides women and children.
Matthew 14: 17-21
Rosemary bread - I can almost smell it baking!ReplyDelete
Mmmmmm I bet this is wonderful! Hope Henrietta is recuperating nicely. xoReplyDelete
It looks beautiful all golden and scrumptious I am sure. I even have some rosemary; however, it sounds incredibly labor intensive and my stamina, not to mention willpower, is low. I'd need some guests or we'd eat the entire loaf in one sitting.ReplyDelete
May Henrietta dry out quickly. I have heard that a hair dryer is very helpful with such situations if its done at the time of the accident...er...incident...whatever might or might not have happened to poor Henrietta.
For want of a comma...
I do hope your computer woes come to an end soon :)ReplyDelete
I was mortified a few years ago when mine went wonky on me and had to be sent off for repairs, not once, but twice. Arghh I went out and bought a new one while it was gone and now I have two. (a costly solution I admit)
I haven't made homemade bread in years but think I would enjoy giving it a go when life slows down a bit. I love the smell when it is baking!
Is that the bread Kati made for our visit?ReplyDelete
It is delicious! Thank you for all these recipes!
I hope Henrietta continues to recover....
How blessed you are to have daughter who loves to bake and cook, and she is blessed to have a mom like you who has taught and inspired her to know her way around in the kitchen and to be a gracious hostess. Your family reminds me of "The Waltons" with their three generations under the same roof of the old farmhouse. Sounds like you all have tons of fun even with the work of making it all happen. Blessings, Sharon D.ReplyDelete
Mmmm... I can smell it. Seriously! I'll have a piece and some of your delicious soup, thank you. Such a talented team you two are.ReplyDelete
Computers. Can't live with 'em, can't live without 'em.
Praying for Henrietta. :)ReplyDelete
Have missed you!
Are you kidding? More bread? Cheryl, you needed to post more this week.. for me. :)ReplyDelete
