One of Those Sundays

Yesterday the invisible gremlins seemed to be pulling one April Fools prank after another. It started with our trip to the Commissary for groceries, only to find out they were having “technical difficulties” and wouldn’t be opening at least for another hour and a half. If then. They lady standing outside telling folks of this didn’t seem too sure about the time frame. I also noticed all of the employees were standing outside, in a cold wind. My guess? They were locked out again.

The real issue is that if we didn’t get our shopping in that afternoon we’d have to wait until at least Tuesday as they are closed on Monday. Which is unfortunate, as Tuesday and Wednesday I have full schedules. We made the decision to hit the Save A Lot in town and grab a few necessities and wait for the rest.

Unfortunately, one item on the list was a dozen eggs. (Does that really count as one item or is it a dozen items?) Arriving home we weren’t quite fast enough to get them put away.

No, the dog hadn't laid eggs.

Getting rid of the evidence

The remains

The day did wind up well. I had spotted this recipe King Arthur Flour’s Italian Easter Cheese Bread in my email last week and was just itching to make it. A cold, windy day was perfect for a loaf of homemade bread to go with a boring steak dinner.

This bread was crusty and light, exactly as the described. Other than utilizing a food processor for for the mixing, I followed the recipe as is. Their recipes are always easy to follow and this one required no unusual ingredients. It now goes in my Tried and True file and will probably be made on a regular basis to accompany hearty, Italian soups.
