Hearty Herb Bread

Something in my neck has coiled as it should not. My world has been halved with left hemi-neglect. Please approach me from the right until further notice.

This bread was not the best, it’s contest winning somewhat suspect as now is my opinion of Bob’s taste. It is, however, healthy and hearty and nicely herbed. It is a salad stuffed into a brown square.Image

    ! Bob eats dandelions, too, Rachel! He should stick to gristing and leave the baking to Christopher Kimball…..Love you.

  2. Oh dear, so sorry to hear that your neck is out of whack! Too much craning it to admire the mountain vistas? 😉 here’s hoping you’re back to full health ASAP! P.S. lol at “squat stars” 🙂
