Muesli Baguette

The porridge was good, the bread was better. If you liked the muesli porridge yesterday, you will love this bread made from a scoop of the porridge. Image

Slices from the baguette were particularly good with mozzarella cheese. This was served with an ensemble of tasty goods assembled last night on our backyard picnic table where we hosted a reunion with our neighbors (since we have been gone all summer). Izzy is pleased to be home and out of the backseat of the car for days in a row now. This is a great pic my dad snapped of her making a clover-tongue face in New Mexico.Image
