haiku (written at 11pm last night)

A fan belt on the

evening breeze stands in for the

crickets yet to come.

haiku (for Max the cat)

If you tell me cats

have no sense of irony

I won't believe you.

Trying to blossom

too soon in this cold world can

shatter fresh flowers.

Feta Flatbread with Pesto

Recipe by: Osquer

Prep time: about 5 minutes
Cook time: about 15 minutes

Pillsbury French Loaf Bread Dough
Crumbled Feta Cheese

Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees.

Line a large cookie sheet with parchment paper.

Remove the bread dough from the can and unroll it onto the parchment.

Using a basting brush, thinly brush with pesto.

Sprinkle generously with crumbled feta cheese.

Bake at 350 until the underside begins to brown (Lift a corner every few minutes with a spatula to check.) approximately 10-12 minutes.

Place under broiler for a few minutes until the top turns golden brown and the feta begins to toast.

Cut into triangles. (This way each piece has a really nice crispy edge.)

This is great served with salsa or chilled diced tomatoes. I can’t wait to try it with some wedding soup!
