🍞 bread bowls

Bread bowls and minestrone soup! I don’t actually have any Sunday dinner traditions, but this is a meal that involves some prep work (homemade bread) and so is best for a weekend. The soup is also something to make on a weekend and eat throughout the week, although last week’s soup is also just fine.

Homemade bread is best fresh! Recipe for four bread bowls follows, though it’s pretty much just your standard bread recipe.
