Ciabatta Garlic Bread Pizza

I had never made ciabatta before this, and it is so easy! There was a small snafu with the dough being too runny, but adding a bit of extra flour worked just fine.

Friday Favorites 5

Today is one of the Fudgelet’s friends’ birthday, and it is also the Friday after my dad’s birthday, so let’s have some Friday love!

So, I am truly sorry, Dad, and hope to do better this year. It has also been crazy how fast the months have gone by. I’ve been trying to set more of a routine for myself each week so that I can fit in my chores and tasks more easily. I had an old routine pre-Fudgelet, and now I need to make a new one. I’ll keep you posted on how it goes. 😉
