Live Well. Happiness will follow. Now here is a challenge that provides a pleasant diversion from regular posting. It has no thought-provoking questions to answer and no need to dig any deeper than the tip of your tongue. Whether your blog is nutrition, travel, fashion, food, art, poetry, photography, fiction, or non….everyone has quotes that impact them, in my opinion. Perhaps you will take a moment to share those quotes with others by accepting this challenge. It’s really very simple, actually.
I have Melinda to thank for this well-deserved break. Her blog, http://purpleslobinrecovery.wordpress.com is so interesting. Whether she is organizing, studying, or practicing self-help measures, she seems to look at the glass as “half full”. Take two minutes to ask Melinda about her Very First Place, Home Sweet Home!
The Rules of this Challenge are:
– Post 1 quote a day for 3 days (can be your own or from other sources).
– Nominate 3 bloggers to participate per post.
– Thank the person who nominated you.
My Nominations are:
Keep Calm, Live Well, and Post a Quote! 🍓
What’s Cooking in Gail’s Kitchen? Home Cooking: Sombrero Bread Bowl! OMG, this is the best kept secret! Go to your nearby Bakery and choose a savory artisan bread, small loaf. I chose Rosemary Olive Oil. From there, the biggest challenge is waiting for your mouth-watering seasoned creation to come out of the oven! Repeat after me, “All good things come to those who wait!” You can thank me later.
SOMBRERO BREAD BOWL
4 ounces Neufchâtel cheese
1/2 cup ranch salad dressing
1 cup extra-sharp cheddar cheese, shredded
2 green onions
1 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes
6 strips bacon, cooked and crumbled
1 14.5-ounce round loaf of artisan loaf
Preheat oven to 300°. In medium bowl, blend Neufchâtel cheese, ranch dressing, cheddar cheese, red pepper flakes, and bacon until well mixed. Stir in onion snips. Cut off top of bread bowl. Hollow out insides. These may be used for dipping later. Fill center cavity with creamy mixture. Replace top. Wrap entire loaf in foil. Bake for 90 minutes. Peel back foil to expose bread bowl. Bake 30 minutes longer. Serve warm with bread cubes, multi-colored tortilla chips, and green onions. Enjoy!
