Lucky for me…



On the day before Christmas, Ree Drummond, The Pioneer Woman dropped by via her blog to describe some of her favorite food moments.  In delectable fashion, she wrote about Olive Cheese Bread.




I was enthralled.

I had nearly all the cast of characters present.

There has been a bucket of mixed olives chilling in my refrigerator for a while.

A block of Mozzarella needed to be used because The Fast is coming.

Ree used Monterey Jack cheese.

Of course MP was happy to pit the olives and go the  market to fetch me a "bottom-of-the-totem-pole FOIL BAG French bread from the grocery store".

I manufactured the olive and cheese mixture and assembled the loaves.

About 30 minutes before I served dinner I baked this bread.

My family swooned and gobbled it up!



I didn't have time to photograph the steps--just the bread as it emerged soft, salty, olive-y and crunchy from the oven.




It found a home nestled behind








Britton's Cesar Salad,








Roasted Pork  Paddles with Apple Cider Gravy,







Dolly Cabbages, and






Potatoes au Gratin.








One more indulgence --just one.  Say Bye, bye to 2012 and eat this bread!

    Peggy! Awesome idea! I just happen to have some left over Christmas olives and cheese that needed a recipe to make them yummy and use them up before the fast too. My husband will love this while watching the Sunday football games. Thanks so much.
