Countdown, Day 15: Abbey Bread

The hunger for love is much more difficult to remove
than the hunger for bread.
~Mother Teresa
 Norwegian flatbread, perfect with soup.
Takeout from Panera Bread, for those who don't bake.

A kitchener-monk who baked bread for Holy Trinity Abbey devised a recipe for home use.
A bread mix made from an Old World recipe is available online
at St. John's Abbey in Minnesota. Click here to purchase Johnny Bread mix and other abbey gifts.
Remember man does not live on bread alone:
sometimes he needs a little buttering up.
~John C. Maxwell

My sister built an outdoor oven so she could bake bread. I'm visiting her this weekend for our family Christmas and we have made bread and pizza! So fun! Your bread looks delicious!

Oh yes!
I make panettone at Christmas, and enough loaves to hand out to neighbors and friends who'll stop by. Merry Christmas.

Flatbread is one of my favorites. My mother used to make it at Christmastime.
