French Bread Rolls

I decided to make some bread this morning so this is the recipe I chose to make:

The french bread rolls turned out pretty good. No problems and I am gaining more confidence with my breadmaking.

They turned out nice and fluffy inside. The did lack flavor despite my adding of a over a tablespoon of honey to the recipe, but I decided to use some of them rolls to make a grilled cheese sandwich. I used a bread knife to slice the roll in half. It actually turned out great and you can guess what I am having for lunch again tomorrow!

While waiting for my bread to rise this morning, I was looking at my basil plant. Sometimes I buy them having great ideas of using the basil and never get around to using it and eventually I have to toss it. I decided caprese on a stick would make a great, healthy snack.

I bought some marinated fresh mozzarella balls from Trader Joes. I sliced them in half and sandwiched two pieces of basil and a tomato between the halves. I drizzled a light amount of balsamic vinegar on them.

Fresh AND easy.
