In honor of our 6th Anniversary, Lien, of Notitie van Lien and our host kitchen for this auspicious month
wanted the Babes to stretch a bit.
And they folded.
Then they stretched.
What – the Babes couldn’t get their act together to celebrate?
Don’t be silly
Lien had this wonderful recipe for Rgaïf (no, I don’t know how to pronounce it…. which is why I’m typing, not dictating. Sheesh!) She had been waiting for just the right moment to try and the 6th Anniversary Bread was it..
I’ll let you in on a little secret…. I had actually been thinking about baking the bread this month. I had guests for a long weekend, so I thought I could bake the bread and have lots of help eating it.
Then I read this bit: The dough needs to be stretched ‘thinner than paper’ then folded and cooked in a skillet.
I looked at my kitchen counters (butcher block is not good for working with dough); I assessed my abilities (negligible); factored in the very high risk of acute embarrassment (I thought you could cook / bake / were a food blogger) and decided to let the other Babes show off their skills without me. I’ll stick to what I know – showcasing their brilliantly capable endeavors.
As it turns out, the other Babes, who actually made the bread, said that not only was it wonderful, it really was pretty easy.
Some like it sweet, some like it plain and some like it savory.
So…. Do as they do, not as I say and check it out for yourself at Notitie can Lien. Get the recipe and details for being a Bread Baking Buddy and have some fun.
