I think I'm addicted

I finally completed an entire assignment! And on time, too! Makes me feel like a bit of a goody two shoes, but then I never liked those girls in school. Like the one who always had the best grades, bought all her clothes at Gap, and was totally the teacher's pet forever, but her mom made her to-scale model of the North Church for sure in 5th grade, cheating brat, and I made this all myself, so there and take that Mrs. Phillips. Maybe I had too much caffeine today. Definitely too many carbs. I may need an intervention.

Anywho, this is the master recipe from Healthy Bread in Five Minutes a Day baked into a mini loaf, some garlic knots, and Turkish pita bread. The pita was delish stuffed with tabbouleh and hummus, perfect for lunch! Really, this dough rocks. Sigh. It can pretty much do anything, take any form, accompany any dish. I think I'm in love.

Tabbouleh Salad
Adapted from Weight Watchers Annual Recipes For Success 2009


1 c. cooked bulgur
1 can chick peas, drained and rinsed
1 c. grape tomatoes, chopped
1 c. cucumber, diced
1/2 c. scallions, sliced thinly
1/2 c. crumbled feta
1/4 c. chopped parsley
1/4 c. chopped mint
juice of one lemon
salt and pepper
olive oil

Toss all ingredients in a large bowl, season with salt and pepper, drizzle with olive oil and toss gently to combine.

Be sure to check out Michelle's blog to see what the other HBin5 members baked this week!

Your pitas look great. Thanks for the Tabbouleh recipe. I love it and can't wait for our tomatoes to come on to make some.

What a great looking sandwich and the knots looked delish. I've often thought I needed a bread intervention!
