Bread Bowls

The children were quite intrigued by the idea of eating on bread "trenchers" (a common practice in the Middle Ages), so one night we made the modern equivalent: bread bowls. I've made these many times before, but I guess not much recently, since everyone acted like they were the novelty of the century. I must say, using the no-knead artisan bread recipe rather than ordinary white bread was a good choice---the bowls were soft yet crusty, and held up nicely to the potato chowder inside.
These pictures are terrible (dinnertime is too dark! especially if you're eating at 7, as we always are) but look how happy Abe is! He was the dinner helper on this night and SO proud of our yummy bread bowls.
