Fig and Hazelnut Bread

Yesterday,  Wednesday,  I was doing my usual stint at Hospice.  My colleague mentioned that there was a basket of goodies in the staff dining room, kindly donated by the local Co-Op store.

The Hospice regularly receives such donations from M&S and other stores for the staff to help themselves. It is usually foodstuffs that are at their sell-by date and would normally be wasted.

Yesterday's delivery was a plastic crate full of yummy artisan breads.  I chose a fig and hazelnut loaf and we had a couple of slices toasted this morning for breakfast. It was indeed very yummy.  The rest of the loaf has been cut up into smaller portions and frozen.

  1. It's nice that you get these little rewards for your voluntary work. A fig and hazelnut loaf does indeed sound yummy.

    1. I was lucky that I found the goodie box early enough. I don't think there was much left afterwards.

  2. Oh, that sounds delicious, especially toasted and dripping with butter! Why do I love carbohydrates so?

    1. Ha, ha. I had to forgo the butter (pesky low cholesterol diet) but I did have a smear of raspberry jam on mine.

    1. It is great as an occasional treat. Too much for every day though.
