I am an unfinished work, and so are many of my projects. This blog is just an odd collection of things I make and do.

Bread Machine Fun

My bread machine died one day. We were very sad because Holly was using it a lot and we had some yummy bread out of it.

We put it in the rafters of the garage, with the question "Should we fix it when we have more money?" Well, you all know what happens to those things. They sit there forever.

Except that I am cleaning out the garage a little at a time. I mentioned off-handedly to Kristel that I had to decide what to do about the bread machine and she said she would give  me hers. It's almost brand-new, but she doesn't know how to use it. Her only request is that I make pumpkin carrot bread for her. So I need to get some nuts and then I can do that.

Dallen found a manual online for me, so I just need to get it printed. But the basic features were pretty easy to figure out. 

Of course I had to try it out right away, so I made a loaf of light rye bread. It was wonderful! Then I made a loaf of nut-less pumpkin bread, and it was also terrific. This machine is great! It has a lot of nice features. It's similar to the one pictured at left, but not quite the same. Mine has lots more buttons!

I feel truly blessed. My old bread-maker went into the garbage and the new one is on the counter just waiting for me to throw in a loaf of oatmeal bread. YUM!

I'd post pictures--but the family and guests gobbled up the bread before I could even think about it.
