I knit. And I cook, write, take pictures. All for one low price.

...and she cooks, too!

This is my boss Lori who is the owner of Great Capers Cooking. I started working for her about 2 months ago. Three days a week I get to do something like what I am showing you today.

I bake fresh bread. I used to knead it all by hand, and I loved that. Then Lori got a new mixer, and it makes life just a tad easier.

The sandwich fillings are made from complete scratch:
Cooked white beans, mashed with salt, pepper, parsley, and a touch of olive oil.
Broccoli rabe sauteed in olive oil and garlic.
Sundried tomato spread (soak the tomatoes, puree them with - of course! - garlic, olive oil, balsamic vinegar, smidge salt)

Ready to assemble:

You can find these on most Wednesdays and Fridays at the Honest Weight food co-op in Albany, in their deli case. Sometimes I make pita breads filled with roasted tofu, mashed avocado, cucumber slices, and a soy ginger vinaigrette topped with sprouts.

Guten Appetit!

Too bad I live in LA! The bread looks scrumptious and the sandwiches are making me drool.

I'm so envious of your job! Your boss looks super nice, and it must be very satisfying to make such beautiful bread and healthy, tasty sandwiches.

Das Brot ist ja toll!! Have no idea if I spelled that right, and no idea how to deal with the umlaut! See you at Stephanie's.
