Sooooooo difficult, last week my husband and I decided to cut bread from our diet. Ha! How about that? If you know me a bit you probably know that I’m a bread addict and without bread I turn into Godzilla. So needless to say this past week was a tad too tough for my hubby. I almost bit his head of …lol And today I finally drew the line, and made this petit focaccia…. what??  It’s very small…and with healthy tomatoes…. almost diet, non? I know…I’m shameless. But trust me it was delightful. So if you are shameless like me here is the recipe. Have a great weekend guys, enjoy some yummy food, diet or not.
