Happy Memorial Day weekend everyone! I hope you are enjoying a long weekend with your loved ones and friends.
Today I hung out with my nephews. They are both just the cutest! Don’t you think so?
These two can put a smile on your face no matter what kind of day your having!
After hanging out with my nephews for a bit, I decided to try out this new recipe I found over at Taste and Tell. Naan is an Indian flatbread. In my opinion, it is pretty similar to the Greek pita bread. I commonly get whole wheat naan from Trader Joe’s. I’ve even made a pretty bomb avocado grilled cheese on it before. Mmmm…I should post that one too.
I never really though about grilling bread before. But once I saw this recipe, I knew I had to try it. It turned out awesome! Even better, it was pretty easy to make, but just like other homemade breads, there is a waiting game with the rising of the dough.
My trick with bread dough, especially in the winter, is to pre-heat my oven to 170 degrees while I am working on the dough. Once the dough is complete and ready to sit, I turn the oven off and let the dough rise in the warm oven. It is important that you turn the oven off–we don’t want the dough to start baking! This trick has worked every time for me. I even did it today when it was 80 degrees outside, but still a little cool inside.
For dinner, we enjoyed a grilled chicken breast along side the grilled naan. If Lauren were here, she would have totally made it into a grilled chicken naan sandwich. Ooooo, maybe a grilled chicken and cheese off the grill? Oooo, with avocado?!
Now we’re talking.
