Homemade French Bread? Yes PLEASE!

There is no telling what the boy does at home/his office while I'm at work all day.  I mean he works when he has gigs booked, but going freelance has also created a lot of free time for him.  After we get a new toy I can usually assume he's setting it up or researching/ reading the owner's manual all day (take our food saver for instance).  When we're about to throw a party or have family or friends in town... well he's usually cooking.  He likes to make pot roast you see.  He also likes to bake bread with the trusty kitchen aid.  Mardi Gras is coming up...  He likes to test gumbo recipes around this time of year.  I of course don't find out about these little cooking experiments until he posts a picture on facebook.  I find out with the rest of the world.  I also find other things out, like him wanting to have a pig roast, with the rest of the world.  Don't ask.  I have no idea.

What was he doing today?  Well testing my mom's french bread recipe of course!
It turned out quite well as you can tell.  I like my french bread smothered in butter.  Don't you?  While the gumbo wasn't from scratch (Bear's Creek mix... not too shabby) it hit the spot.  It was a great little taste of what is to come at our cajun feast of a Mardi Gras party in a couple of weeks.

  1. uhhh... that being said. If you are coming to the party... there WILL be homemade bread AND gumbo. The mix gumbo was just a stand in to test the bread!
