Baker boys

There was an Italian theme running through the Wilson household yesterday. 

Harry made biscotti 

By himself while Mike and I were out shopping.

 Groceries mainly but we visited the sports shop too. Harry had a splendid report card from his new school so a reward was in order. This reward came in the shape of a new football. I quite possibly shed a tear over the price. I also bought Mike another Welsh Rugby top. It's a training one I think. It was reduced (one of my favourite words) and is grey - my favourite colour on Mike. 
Mike queried my generosity. I gently rebuffed him saying he deserved a treat and thinking to myself it's Yarn shop day this coming Saturday :)

In the afternoon Mike made ciabatta 



Four smaller loaves in all. We ate one straight out of the oven dipped into olive oil & balsamic vinegar. It was divine. We then ate another later on with some antipasti bits.
It was seriously good bread. 
Staffordshire oatcakes are on the menu next weekend 

Of course the little helper was in the background 

Did you all have a good weekend. I do hope so, take care xx

  4. May I come and stay at your house? Love the smell of cooking bread. I have never eaten a home-made biscotti, only the shop variety and I am always wary about my teeth ;0)
