My husband rocks.
I recently told him I needed some uninterrupted sewing time. A whole big block of time to be creative.
"How about Sunday." he suggested. "I'll take the kids, you sew all day. I'll even bring you chocolate and coffee and slip it under the door."
Insert excited squeal!! One whole day a week to hang out in my bedroom aka studio and listen to inspiring music while I sew. You know just saying the word studio makes me feel creative!
So not only does that hard working man spend one of his two days off of work wrangling kids solo all day ….. who by the way only want to talk to mama as soon as I shut my "studio" door……. but he makes dinner. And he does laundry. I think I'm in love. (well even more then before)
He made potato leek soup and roasted asparagus and this bread. Everything was good. Sooooooo good. The bread was a perfect companion to the veggie soup. It's simple and delicious.
So I thought I'd share. You know, just incase any other dad's out there are looking for some dinner ideas to feed the tribe while the mama sews…….
1 loaf of french bread
1/4 cup butter
1/4 cup olive oil
3 cloves garlic crushed through a garlic press
shredded parmesan cheese
2-3 roma tomatoes sliced
**melt the butter and olive oil together. add the garlic. slice bread in half lengthwise. spread garlic butter onto bread halves. sprinkle with salt. shred some parmesan cheese over that. top with the sliced tomatoes. add another sprinkling of parmesan. Broil on low until the edges are brown and crispy like the picture above. perfect served with veggie soup!
oh yes, and don't forget to smooch the cook 🙂
