Homemade Bread sticks

Lets be honest who doesn’t love bread right? Most of us cannot resist some homemade bread with some melted butter on it. Yes believe it or not I do eat bread. Bread is one of my weaknesses besides sweets. I normally make bread to next to a main meal. For example if I made some soup or a pasta dish I would make some bread to go along with it.
