Pretty wordless, this one.
First, I apologize if I have not been around with my comments on your blogs.
With the holiday busy-ness and the post-holiday busy-ness, I have been afraid to open my blog reader. I simply cannot catch up at this point and would need a week or two to fully be abreast.
Plus, I have been down with a virus the last week. I call it the Nissin virus, because this virus makes one lose one's appetite and just want to eat Nissin instant noodles.
And just to prove it's a Nissin virus, both TS and CSC have now come down with it and, yes, they too want to eat instant noodles. Maybe it's the MSG that makes one feel better. ;)
(CSC's kids -- Boss #1 and Boss #3 -- have now also gotten the flu. Boss #2 is remarkably resilient.)
Back to the bread.
I used the olive oil dough from Artisan Bread in Five Minutes a Day.
We had some olives in the fridge and I wanted to use them up. I didn't want to put too much olives though, as some of our family members are not keen on olives. I sliced some red onions and sprinkled them on top. The bread baked for about 25 minutes in a preheated 425F oven, until it was crispy.
The dough rose nicely and it was very light and puffy. The smell of the olives and red onions was quite intoxicating!
