for the love of bread
i'm stealing a moment with dan's computer while he takes tashi to school.
the above photo was taken over the weekend when we used our freecycled bread machine for the first time. it worked like a charm. i have a guilty voice speaking inside me for using a bread machine. i know the bread isn't quite as good as hand made bread, that it lacks soul. but i never seem to think ahead enough to make bread by hand, and i've had some bad luck with yeast. so when the bread machine came up on freecycle, i successfully pounced on it. i'm looking forward to making whole grain breads. our first test run was a basic white bread. i have to admit, it was pretty magical to pour the ingredients in, and, in a couple of hours, pull out a nice warm loaf. tashi was pleased.
