Baking is a definite stress buster. It lifts the spirits. ❤
A few stems of fresh vine cherry tomatoes and basil were looking for my attention, so I thought of baking focaccia for lunch. 🙂
Back from his trip, the man of the house wanted to take me out for lunch. He even promised to keep his phone on mute for sometime. 😂😉
So the foccacia had to wait.🙂
Will pair this wonderful bake with a salad or soup for dinner. ❤
I would love to share a few pics with you all.
