Flat sourdough bread sandwiches

03 May

This morning, Joe decided we should go to the farmers markets instead of our usual morning walk – in the interest of good eating, he assured me. I am always keen for an excursion to the markets, so humbly agreed to his suggestion – in the interest of good eating, of course.

You may remember recently I blogged about  Nimbin Valley Dairys Lemon Billy Goats Cheese during my Fig and Goat Cheese Tart post. The deliciousness of that product whetted my appetite for more so I was keen to make my next purchase. This time I came back with some of their delicious Illian Feta cheese. I also had the great fortune of purchasing some gorgeous fresh Summerland Olives. Today I opted for something new and purchased some manzanolli olives instead of my usual kalamata. I also purchased a gorgeous roast capsicum dish made that morning by a local vendor from market produce. All in all, a fantastic excursion, as you would expect.

And so it is that the universe acts to balance the good of the morning with a *kind* of failure… I *may* have misread my recipe and made a slight error with my bread. Never mind, I was able to save the “rolls” and turn it into a delicious, crunch flat bread. I was able to cover up the mistake by loads of awesome fresh produce and some home-made hummus. I shall speak of it no more, other than to say it was a delicious failure!

    Like they say Rhianna…”when life hands you lemons…make lemonade”…if you hadn’t told us that your bread had failed we would never have known because it looks delicious 🙂

      It still tasted delicious, even though it was originally a failure of sorts.

      Agreed! Sure looks good to me! The making of a mistake into a miracle is quite a handy skill 🙂 Well done, R!

          Just took delivery of a marmalade jar of sourdough starter…I will feed it tomorrow and we will see how she goes…if she lives I will call her Ermingtrude (nothing like an interesting moniker to give something attitude ;))

          Ohhh! You will have to share your results! I have possibly the most amazing bread known to man proofing at the moment – its a honey / whole grain / multi grain bread that is AMAZING but it does take 24 hours to proof. Lucky I have time 🙂

          DROOL!!! At the moment I have a marmalade jar full of sourdough starter that is sitting blissfully on my bread proofing shelf above the wood fired stove… I will feed it up and will give it a go as soon as I am happy that it is happy…Ermingtrude is smiling 🙂 make sure to share your honey wholegrain multi grain bread story with us so that I can get my food porn fix for the day 😉

          I think my readers by and large must be getting sick of my sourdough adventures by now. Might just be you and me soon 🙂

          Nope…remember sourdough is “it” at the moment, especially making your own so I dare say the more you post about it…the more new readers you will get!
