School supplies choke the main aisles at Kroger and Wal-Mart;
that's a mayday siren that my langorous days of summer are almost spent.
I've made fresh bread every week this summer.
My happiest weeks are when
I luxuriate in the bread one night as a side
and savor it again by repurposing it into a main dish the next night.
I've puttered around with bread recipes this summer.
I've experimented with a Texas version of Croque Monsieur
and today I try Bruschetta.
Start by chiffonading fresh basil from the garden.
(I'm proud of this shot, btw; I used the timer on my camera.)
Brown a loaf of homemade bread in butter.
Mix fresh tomatoes, garlic, fresh basil, and balsamic vinegar.
If you want specifics, here's the
Bruschetta recipe I used.
Anyone have any other great ideas to use homemade bread?
