chowder & bread bowls

after seeing Garden Mama's post about her wonderful bread (thanks, GM!), we had to try it out. friday is soup day around here and by far the favorite soup is actually chowder. i know i have blogged about it before -- clam chowder, fish chowder--chowder of any kind pleases the boys and the girls can go either way, so we do up the chowder a lot. if we've really got our act together soup day is also bread day. because there is nothing like homemade bread and soup on a winter day, you know?
we had already been planning clam chowder, but then after seeing that post, we decided that bread bowls were something we MUST try!
after going to the cabinet to see what we had on hand, i realized we were out of all-purpose flour, so even though Garden Mama's recipe called for it, we used white-whole wheat, which i would have done anyway--for at least half of the all-purpose.

i have to say, we loved this bread! there are still a few little loaves in the freezer for this friday (i finally figured out that if i freeze bread, i don't have to make it every week! yes, i do catch on eventually). sadly the photos suffer from bad lighting. and cheap, old camera...but what can you do?

he couldn't wait to try the bread bowl. he had no idea what i was talking about, so it was fun to put it all together. and the chowder rocked, so dinner was slurped right up!

my boy's got some crazy-good knife skills, too! after all his years chopping veggies and apples at his Waldorf school, he's really quite helpful. he calls me his sous chef. classic.
what about you? got any wonderful soup or bread recipes you want to share?
