Andrew...and Joel and Jayme..

Today, was a typical warm afternoon at home, (as you saw many from my living room, as I arrived today, my wife treated me good...I figured you would like to see this and remember some..

In the afternoon, just before the kids arrived from school, I went shoping to the big supermarket we took you, remember??

We do remember you and Joel and Jaymee..we do. wish you were here...

So the warm afternoon was calling for a little treat..

Well, Giulietta just baked a typical portuguese bread see here..



that I cut a few slices while still very hot and steamy...



and then while it was still hot I spread some pure salty butter on it..and let the molten butter soak in...



We then uncorked this



Good to be home..MY home...my family my wine my food...

Take care buddy

Alex

You let your wife work in a kitchen that small?

Perhaps I should send my wife over to aid the lovely Giulietta in an expansion of her kitchen. It may seem impossible to the mere husband that such an expansion is possible, as I myself thought. Five minutes with my wife and all of your neat maritime artifacts will be removed to the garage, walls will fall, and you'll have a galley suitable for a modest sized warship.

I'm thinking that all I'd need is a one way ticket for her as you'll be more than willing to fork out the return fare after exposure to her awesome capabilities. (g)

OK..

Giulietta, the wife has done this post for you guys.

PORTUGUESE BREAD RECIPE

this is very easy and simple and there is nothing to it..I am embarrassed. sorry.

You will need:

1) 330 grams of warm water, around 37Deg C - that is 11.7 ounces of water at 98.6 Deg F.
2) 2 small tea spoons of salt, some people prefer a saltier bread some don’t, add more if you want, don’t exaggerate.
3) 40 grams of bread yeast, that is 1.41 ounces (use yeast for baking bread only)
4) 500 grams of flour, that is 17.63 ounces of flour

Mix everything with only half of the flour (250 grams, or 8.81 ounces), making sure that all the ingredients are well mixed and well diluted.

After all is well mixed, add the remaining flour, and re-mix very well. It will take you almost 10 minutes of mixing, over and over…please, make sure you do this.

Let the dough rest for half hour, so it raises and …………(I don’t know the name of the word in English, but means the work the yeast does, in making the bread grow).

Make sure you have pre-heated the oven at least 430 Deg. F.

Place the bread in a large lump, and bake evenly, until the crust starts to brown lightly. Baking times depend on the oven and your patience.

After the bread comes out of the oven, still hot and steaming, cut a few slices, and apply a generous quantity of butter, preferably salt butter.

You may also rub half a tomato, before applying the butter. Another good idea is to pre mix butter and garlic..yummy..

Eat bread, at the end of the afternoon, with a room temperature soft tannin red wine.. enjoy

Bye bye

Giulietta

Thank you very much I will try it.

I use to have an older women visit my winery during harvest and she would take some fermenting red wine and make bread from it. It was very yeasty tasting and pink in color, but very good.
