Over the last few years, the hubby and I have gotten more and more interested in making our own food, from scratch. First to go was pre-prepared meals, snacks, and brownie box mixes. Then store bought jams, salsas, spaghetti sauces, and pickles. The next item on our radar was bread. And ya'll, we eat a lot of bread in this house. My hubby is a carb happy snacker. Where I am more likely to reach for chips or nuts or whatever requires absolutely no preparation at all, he snacks on slices of sandwich bread, rolled up tortillas, and leftover rolls. To the point that, with just two adults in the house, we go through 1-2 loaves of bread a week. Plus any incidental tortillas, buns, rolls, etc.
Enter the breadmaker from my grandmother.
PE studying has stopped us from playing before now, but this week, we pulled out the bread maker and made:
- Wheat bread
- White bread
- Cinnamon Rolls
(For the last two, we let the machine mix and proof the dough and away we went!)
At this point I figure we have no reason to ever buy bread again.
