I had bigger and better (tasting) things planned!
The yeast, sugar, olive oil and warm water proofing.
One cup of green olives, coarsely chopped.
Ready to rise.
I did not like the looks of these loaves - they were too flat for my liking and seemed more like focaccia and not the "loaf of bread" look that I was hoping for. However, looks aside, WOW! The taste was amazing - even with the dried rosemary! If you are a fan of green olives (and i know not many are), this bread is for you. I ran a few extra miles this morning to make up for how much of this bread I ate yesterday. It was totally worth it though!
