Camera and more Bread

I made this great loaf of Rosemary-garlic Flatbread yesterday. I found the recipe in an old Mother Earth News magazine. Turned out great. I made a dipping oil for it by warming extra virgin olive oil on the stove with chopped garlic and dried basil; heat for about 5-10 minutes over low heat to infuse the oil. I followed the recipe (click to enlarge) except I didn't have any shredded provolone or asiago cheese so I used some parmesan we had and I baked it on my bread stone. (NOTE: I really recommend using parmesan cheese, I used a soft cheese the last time I made this bread, and didn't like it nearly enough.)

But the coolest thing yesterday was the arrival of this...

I'd been lusting after this little camera but when I got laid off I, of course, being the practical person I am, gave up on ever having it. So Kim volunteered for some overtime at work and surprised me with the camera this week. Is he sweet or what? Yeah, he IS sweet! Thanks Kim.

The flat bread looks ooooo so good.
Stealing the recipe and your idea of the warm oil and herbs.
Sounds like you have a special guy .
