Events we don't plan!

 
This morning I had wonderful intentions of baking a banana sultana loaf......
I had even written out a recipe that I thought would work and was busting to try it.....
All my best intentions for today were laid aside when we had a incident in our family that meant we spent all day at the hospital..... yes alllllllllllllllllllllll day.

I can't decide what's more tiring... emotional exhaustion or physical exhaustion.

I was devastated by the thought of not being able to do a 'baking' post today, and then when my hubby made dinner & put it in front of me I grinned from ear to ear!....
Although he had made us all a 'quick & easy' dinner, it also included a baked item!!!!!!!!! :D
How could I NOT post that! lol

So today's baking post is not something I baked, but something that was baked for me.....

Look at those lovely pieces of Lebanese bread that he baked!

We often cut slices of Lebanese bread & bake them.
They only take about 10 minutes to come out wonderfully golden & crunchy.
I love how they make a nice crusty addition to meals :-)

Lebanese bread works great as a pizza base too! It also works great as 'fold-overs' toasted in a sandwich press. It also makes a great snack to use for dipping into hummus and other spreads or dips.

So, I do have every intention of sharing with you my banana sultana loaf tomorrow..... but let's just see what the day brings!!!

  5. I can imagine the stress:)) Hope all is improving for your family. This looks very yummy and how sweet of your husband after a not so good day. Baking the bread is much healthier than using corn chips.
