Carb Fest 2011 Part 1 AKA "Good Eats!"
I say part 1 because my trip to Italy in September will most decidedly be a serious carb fest part 2.
One of my mothers friends purchased a loaf of Olive Bread, but didn't like it and was kind enough to pass it on to her, but she also sent some cheesy bread, so Olive is all for me. I eat a bit every time I visit my parents.
And despite the fact that it was Olive Bread I drizzled on some olive oil. The slight saltiness of the olives was enough that i didn't even need to sprinkle on salt.
It was decadently delicious in a savory kind of way. A great treat! I don't eat bread often but when I do....I know I know I sound like a broken record...but I want it to be something truly special.
This bread is!
Friday July 8
B: Heart Thrive - Chocolate (from Coffee Tree Roasters..These would be great with a hot cup of tea or ice tea or just some ice water as they are a touch dry to eat on their own, but still delicious! And the ingredient list is rather impressive too (OATS, BROWN RICE SYRUP, CHOCOLATE CHIPS, BROWN RICE FLOUR, SOY PROTEIN CONCENTRATE, SOY FLOUR, INULIN (CHICORY ROOT EXTRACT), RICE BRAN, NATURAL FRUIT JUICE, DRIED PLUMS, DRIED APPLES, DRIED PEARS, CALCIUM CITRATE, VANILLA EXTRACT.))
Sorry for the fuzz...Ill try to fix it later. :-)
