So, the semester is nearing to a close, and I finally have a little bit of breathing room, and so I thought I’d write a post. I know, we’ve been a little lax on posting lately, but we’ve actually been making very good food. This week alone we made: a spinach, mushroom and feta sandwich loaf, clams in a white wine sauce over homemade bread, beef stroganoff, Mushu pork, bruschetta pasta, tofu and egg scramble with cheesy potatoes and probably more things that I can’t remember right now. This post is going to cover just the bread and the sandwich loaves, because it turned out very well, and I have nice pretty pictures of it.
The recipe for the sandwich loaves and the loaf of sweet french bread I made last weekend came out of the first bread book I ever bought, sold by the beautiful delicious pictures and simple single-page instructions: Margeaux Sky’s Beautiful Breads & Fabulous Fillings. I made her sweet french loaf, which I hadn’t tried before, but was enticed by the promise of the most delicious french toast we’d ever taste. I also liked the idea of a sweeter loaf to go under the clams and wine sauce we had planned. So, I made Sky’s sweet french loaf last Saturday for dinner the following night, as well as two of her sandwich loaves (bread, rolled around fillings) for Saturday’s dinner as well as freezer food. Here are the results!
