Foccacia with olives.

It is Sunday morning, and my time to recover some energy after a busy week. I have several ways to recover. Terje, Marta and cousin Mathilde are out cross country skiing, yes we've finally got enough snow for that. I could have gone with them, but decided to use the opportunity to enjoy a quiet house. I have an opera playing, Mozart's Don Giovanni, I am making a cream cake for a party in the afternoon, and I have just taken a foccacia with olives out of the oven. The nice smell is filling the house.
For the foccacia I used the same recipe as I gave you a few days ago, Foccacia Dolca con Mandorle, but instead of sprinkling the dough with sugar before baking, I used a small glass of marinated olives.
A rich foccacia doesn't need anything else, but taste the best eaten plain, still hot from the oven.

I will have to try this sometime. We still have ice storm going on - so it was quiche for breakfast. Pot roast is in the crock pot for dinner.

Sounds delicious Britt. I bet the house will smell just wonderful when they come in from skiing!!

I may just have to try this today. It is cold and grey here and we expect 6" of snow before tomorrow, so warm focaccia would be wonderful!

Baking with the strains of "Don Giovanni" in the background. Now THAT's my idea of fun!

I looked through your previous posts too. I especially liked the cauliflower one. Please do keep this up.

Sheila - you should give the bread a try. Easy to make, and it tastes heavenly.

Terri - is your storm still there. We are also having a storm today. I am glad I can stay indoors. Must find something to bake :-)

Susie - it didn't take them long to finish the bread....

Star - did you try it?

RennyBA - snow here, but melting today though. Hopefully we'll have colder weather again tomorrow.

Potatoprint - a favorite book in my bookshelves is one wich combines Italian food and music, famous Italian Aries, classic Italian recipes. Perfect in The Blue Café.

Jeanne - I wish you could come over as a guest some time....

Carolyn - welcome back
