Trumped by the Bread

by Cait on November 6, 2011

Today was  a lovely little day.

It was gorgeous outside.

I was semi-productive and actually managed to cross things off my never-ending to-do list.

I had an amazing 7-mile run.

And I made a delicious dinner.

Whole wheat gnocci with sauteed chicken andouille sausage and sauce.

A deliciously simple side salad of mixed greens, baby carrots and toasted pumpkin seeds.

And the BEST part?

Freshly baked pepperoni mozzarella bread from my favorite antique bakery – just a dangerous 3 feet away from my apartment

Like pizza but 10x better.

I could’ve just eaten this entire roll for dinner and been happy.

I am definitely going to be using this recipe to make my own VERY VERY soon.

This was the most comforting dinner.

Holy yum! This bread looks fabulous! If I lived near that bakery I’d be going there and buying this bread every single day! :-)

I know – luckily I think they switch up their specialty offering every day so they don’t always have it otherwise I’d be in BIG trouble!

My fiancé would be obsessed with the pepperoni bread! I’ve never heard of whole wheat gnocchi before. I must find some!

That bread looks fantastic!! My fiance is in love with pepperoni. He won’t eat pizza without it. So in bread form, he would absolutely be in heaven! :)

That looks incredible…. I wish we had a bakery that makes such amazing bread back in Romania.
I’ve never tried whole wheat gnocchi but it looks delicious with the rustic sauce and sausages! Great food combination… really :)
