Preparing for visitors

Yvonne has made a chilli for Friday, my eldest daughter, her husband and daughter are coming down for the weekend, my middle daughter will be arriving later on Friday as well. Satay chicken for her!

Anyway, what goes really well with Chilli?... Garlic bread.


Yvonne's Amazing Chilli!!!
But, being me, I had to make the bread first,
I made the Richard Bertinet 24-hour ciabatta mix and shaped it as baguettes,



after 20 minutes at 300°C in my bread oven (with steam), they come out looking like this,


That was part one, now I had to add the garlic butter.
I just cut halfway through at intervals, spread a little garlic paste and added lumps of butter.





Wrapped in foil they will cook for 10 minutes at 180°C.

While the oven was on, I also made a sweet dough, using Saffron infused milk and made some teacakes.



I just hope that there's some left for when they turn up!!
