Today on the dinner menu was good old Spaghetti & Meatballs, yum yum! So I decided we needed some bread to go along on the side. I looked at focaccia and ciabatta bread recipes but I only had ingredients on hand for french bread, so I set out all the ingredients and Charlotte and I got busy in the kitchen!
