6 Lemon Rosemary Country Bread

In San Francisco we only have a few weekends when it's warm enough to lay around outside and picnic. These are the days I like to open up the backyard, set up food and blankets, and host afternoon brunch. Country bread seems easy now that I've dealt with the flax and sesame seed whole wheat dough. Lemons and rosemary are flourishing in my backyard, and are perfect ingredients to make bread that you can eat by itself, or with butter, or with cheese. The bread process was pretty straightforward: I started in the evening, let it rest overnight, and baked it in the morning. My spread also included sweet potato pie, fruit, cheese, almonds, bacon-brussels sprout hash--sweet potato quiche, and good friends!
