I finalllllly made bread this weekend. When bread is made in the Kidd nest, it's usually gone in two days [and there's only two of us]. We love bread. Since I can't just go to the grocery store and buy a loaf for $1.50, and I don't want to spend $7.00 for a cardboard loaf of gluten-free bread, I bake my own. Thankfully, there are bread machines, or we'd be out of luck. Recently, Winco started selling Bob's Redmill Gluten-Free Bread Mix! I purchased mine this weekend for only $3.30! In the gluten-free world, that's an unbelievable deal, and so I snagged up 5 mixes. I was that crazy woman in the baking aisle snagging all the mixes from the top shelf. No shame here!
As soon as the bread was ready, I experimented with idea of grilled caprese sandwiches. When I was in France, I ate lots of baguettes with mozzarella cheese, basil, and tomato. SO delicious [take me baaaack!]. I am so thankful I didn't know I had Celiac when I went to Europe. I ate so much bread.
Anyways, these bad boys are extremely tasty and satisfying. I mean, you can't really go wrong with pesto, bread, tomatoes, and mozzarella---right?
