Cheese and Onion Bread

Have a great weekend…..

Chez Foti_0629

I started this blog because I wanted to inspire myself and others to bake or cook. Once a week, I shall be taking time off my blog to cook or bake  from somebody else’s blog. This week I baked a simple Cheese and Onion Bread from a lovely lady I ‘met ” on the WordPress platform from SW France.

Four reasons why you should try this simple Onion and Cheese Bread:

  • It’s a quick and simple yeastless and kneadless throw-it-all together Cheese & Onion Bread, that takes minutes to make.
  • It’s the perfect accompaniment to a hearty lunch time soup and particularly wonderful served piping hot out of the oven whilst the cheeses are still oozy
  • And you can literally use any cheese, or combination of cheeses, you happen to have in.
  • It’s very delicious and filling, I had it for lunch yesterday, but being such a carnivore, I added some ham to it,

  • Did you know that regular exercisers sleep better? Please try to exercise more regularly, if you are not doing so, already.
  • If you thought garage sales were a nuisance, think twice. A rare Chinese bowl bought for US$3.00, at a garage sale, fetched the new owner over 2 million dollars, in a New York Auction.
  • Full cream milk could be better?

Have a springful weeked….


Have a Thoughtful Weekend

Please Remember to Take Your Scarf With You

Yesterday was a lovely and sunny day, so I decided to go for a walk without a scarf and put on a rather light jacket, after all it was shining.  Half way through the walk, the wind started gusting. You know what I am talking about, that biting, cold and frigid wind, that leaves you with an instant running nose and eyes tearing. When this happens and you have your scarf then, you just bundle up and continue walking, happily. I didn’t have my scarf, so I couldn’t bundle up. For the first time since winter began, I really missed my scarf. I remembered my friend, Karen with her, beautiful handmade scarves. Oh how I longed for a scarf…so ladies and gentlemen, if you are going to take a walk over the weekend, and you live in a cold place, please remember to take your scarf with you, and also remember to check the ‘feels like temperatures’ and dress appropriately.

To all those who have been supporting or following my blog, liking my posts and most of all trying out the recipes, I thank you very much for your support because without you, I would have given up by now. Your support is very important to me because it motivates and energizes me!

To my friend Karen, thank you for letting me use these photos for the post.

Food for thought: did you know that the person on the other end of the phone line can sense you smiling? If you never answer your phone with a smile, it’s time to try smiling on the phone. Please give ten people a smile this weekend!

Have a thoughtful weekend!
