Olive Cheese Bread:Ree & Leigh{Anne}

This is my Friday post.  Yes, I know it is Saturday.  And if I wait just a little longer it could be a Sunday post!

I have finally figured out why I have had such a hard time getting this post done, beside the fact that is “Show Week” around here which involves a lot of hair braiding, picture taking and musical theater watching.

For the last two weeks I have been trying to cut sugar and carbs out of my diet – it has been hard.  I am a self proclaimed sugar addict.  Today’s recipe would  not have been allowed on my diet the last two weeks.

The very thought of today’s recipe makes my mouth water.  I am drooling on the key board as I type!

I knew it would be hard to look at the photos so I have been avoiding writing this post but I have finally gotten my courage up and will withstand the temptation to go downstairs and stuff my little face with some wonderful, delicious carbohydrate!!  Oh, how I miss carbs and sugar!

Pioneer Women’s Olive Cheese Bread was part of our Valentine Dinner and can I just say YUM!!!

Cheese bread

I love bread.  I also love any bread that is covered in warm, gooey, melted cheese.  Throw in some olives, green onions and butter and who can resist!!  PW added in pimentos also but I knew no one would eat it at my house if I did so they were omitted!

This is going to be a short post, my willpower is getting weaker!  Just know – you want to make this bread.

    I laughed at you pronouncing your addiction to sugar- I was just lamenting this very same thing to my partner last night! I was telling him how distracted I was by a plate of cookies at a professional networking event I attended , that I actually lost focus on what the speaker was saying while scheming how I could politely get up to get a cookie during the middle of it. I’m so bad! I did end up waiting until the event was over to get one though- and it promptly broke in half and fell on the floor- I guess that’s what I get!

    I love this bread, I’ve made it a couple times for family. Can’t have it very often, but we have it on special occasions. I’ve also frozen 1 loaf tohave at a later date and that works well, too.
