Good bye Fall, in 12 pictures

Parisien bread salad with grated carrots

Good evening, I haven't posted a food post in ages so, to make up for the lost time, I'm posting a delicious bread salad, perfect for cold weather!

1 small loaf French bread, cut into bite-sized cubes
1 tbsp. olive oil, plus more for the baking sheet
1 small shallot diced
2 carrots, grated 
1/3 cup fresh or canned diced tomatoes
4 tbsp. white wine
salt & pepper

3 tbsp. red wine vinegar 
3 tbsp. good olive oil
2 tbsp. Dijon mustard
1 1/2 tsp. thyme

finely grated Parmesan, (or another hard cheese)

Preheat oven to 400 degree. Place cubed bread on a baking sheet greased with olive oil, then bake for 7-10 minutes. Meanwhile, cook the shallots in the olive oil for about 1 min., then add carrots and cook for another minute. Add the white wine to the mixture and cook until almost all the wine has cooked off, then add tomatoes.  Mix the red wine vinegar, olive oil, Dijon mustard and thyme in a small bowl.  Add the toasted bread cubes to a serving dish, mix with carrots & tomatoes and dressing, top with cheese, salt & pepper and some extra thyme :).

Monday reads: Pride and Prejudice

   To be honest, I've only finished halve of the book, it's not an easy read, but I love how Jane Austen writes, and who doesn't love the headstrong Elizabeth Bennett?
