Flat Bread or Naan Style Bread

For many reasons and many things going on in our life right now I've not had Our Daily Bread in the refrigerator for quite some time.  Yesterday morning however, I decided to make up another batch.  I left it on the counter to work its magic for a few hours, then popped it into the refrigerator to use it as some point but was too busy to think about it at the time.

Last night I glanced at the George Foreman grill on the counter and had the idea that my bread dough, made on the George Foreman might make a delicious flat bread or naan style bread!   I grabbed the bucket out of the fridge, formed 4 little mounds of dough on a piece of parchment and let them sit while I did other things.   About an hour later I came back and plopped a piece of dough on the hot griddle and closed it.  Upon opening, I had a perfect hot flat bread.

I sent off photos and an explanation to all three of my young adult kids so they could make them if they wished, as it was just so easy.   And adding it here so they can find it later.

  • Use the Bucket Bread recipe.
  • Grab a handful of dough about the size of your palm.
  • Place it on a piece of greased parchment, foil or plastic.
  • Let it warm and/or rise a bit for about an hour.
  • Heat the George Foreman grill.  Spray or oil the grill.
  • Place the dough on the grill and close the top, not squishing it down, just close it over the dough and leave it.
  • When the lights heat up to show it's ready again, open, and remove the flat bread.
  • Serve with butter or with garlic butter.

Grilled Shrimp and Butter Rice


So simple and not flashy but oh so good.  

Tonight I went to the freezer and spied a bag of large shrimp.  Yes, shrimp sounds fine.  Thawed under water and rinsed, I decided to season with some olive oil, fresh cracked black pepper, ground coriander and garlic salt.  

While I let that sit and marinate for a bit, I started some rice in a saucepan on the stove.  1 cup rice to 2 cups water - (I used about 1 3/4 c rice and scooped in a quick 3 3/4 ish of water);  bring to a boil, reduce and simmer 15-20 minutes.  Because we are usually low-carb, and keto, having rice is a nice treat - a change of pace.  We are trying to 'use up' everything in the pantry and freezers, so we have been eating foods that we normally don't have.

While it simmered I grilled the shrimp, which only takes a few minutes for each side.  (I threaded them on metal skewers.)

When the shrimp was done, I removed them from the skewers, and added about 1/2 c butter to the rice, along with a heavy dose of garlic salt. 

This simple meal was so good!  Simple, filling and oh-so yum.
