Last year, I started to renew vintage recipes I found at home and this Rustic Lard Bread is one of those implemented in our small household. It is very tasty and, if wrapped in foil, lasts for five days. I usually bake the loaf on Saturday morning and we both hardy wait for it to cool a bit and slice it to have with cocoa or glass of milk. It tastes really great, much better then store bought bread and one slice really makes you full.
To make the story complete, next week I’ll publish amazing Chicken Liver Pate with Duck Fat that perfectly matches with home made bread and is so easy and frugal to make. Preparing both bread and pate makes perfect brunch or even dinner ready to serve whenever it pleases you.

My days are filled with many things I have never had time to do and enjoy; I used to told myself , well I’ll do it after I finish this and that but now I am really trying to do my best to do as many as possible of those โ€žon holdโ€œ things and projects.

Combination of home made bread with pate turned to be perfect, comforting and homemade dish to serve if I am really in the middle of something like updating the photo albums of several previous generations, home made cosmetics and so many other things that occupy me lately.

Since it seems we all are baking bread from scratch, from what my family and friends tell me, I decided to post another one within two weeks time. I’ll present the version made with beer. Making it this way, you don’t need an ingredient we all have a problem to get: dry yeast.
Until next week, stay healthy and safe !
