I have hunks of bread in my mouth as I write this

"Of all smells, bread; of all tastes, salt."
George Herbert, English poet (1593-1633)
Have I mentioned that I have no kitchen? Oh, I have; well let me digress some more, it sucks, it really really sucks. It sucks almost as much as living in a vacuum. It sucks worse than being on a packed subway car with a Mr. Nonchelance tossing air biscuits in your general direction the whole way home. It sucks more than other people's children. It sucks more than being ripped from slumber in the mid morning hours by your cat puking up whatever plant he semi digested on the porch earlier that day. It sucks more than a wet spot.
So, I have no kitchen, therefore I have no recipes to post; however, I do have this pic of the wonderful loaf of bread I bought at the farmers market today on my lunch hour. It's a spinach, garlic, olive oil ciabatta loaf topped with sea salt. If anyone knows how to bake this bread from scratch, please, PLEASE, comment and let me know. This bread is the kind you just rip off in large hunks and cram into your mouth. It needs no butter, olive oil or dipping assortments. It's perfect just the way it is, it's an orgasm for your taste buds. Yes, an orgasm for your taste buds. Must eat more bread.

This is the recipe I use but it doesn't have any of the spinach or other goodness in it... I bet there is an easy way to do that though.
Glad you're back

That looks great! Is it Iggy's Bread?

I go to the farmers market in Coolidge Corner (or sometimes Copley) and I am always tempted to get some bread.

I'm spacing on the name of the bread company that sells their bread, rolls etc at Coolidge Corner but its great! Always a line.

This is from the "When Pigs Fly Bakery" I think that's the name of the bakery. They are at the farmers market every Wednesday by south station. I've never been to the farmers market in Coolidge Corner, is it good?

It's in the parking lot behind the movie theater -- has a decent amount of fruit/veg vendors, but somewhat limited on how many vendors they could have because of the size of the lot. Some of the same people that I have seen at some others (like the "apple lady") are at Coolidge Coorner. Like I said, great, great bread (is it Hi something, just spacing on the name). And, don't start me on the Coffee Heath Fro. Yogurt from the truck that is there. Amazing! Puts JP Links to utter shame in my opinion.

Kitchen looks great!

You have too been to the Coolidge Corner farmers market. You've been there with me, granted it was several years ago - but you've been there :)
