When we got married we registered for a bread machine....because doesn't everyone register for a bread machine. Well we got one! It has taken up a lot of space in our kitchen cupboards. I used it a few times with box mixes. But it has spent the majority of our 7 years together deep in a cupboard.
However, I would like to let EVERYONE know that our bread machine has been getting a little use. I have now mastered a yummy oatmeal bread that is perfect for toasting. And this weekend I mastered (ha, like I can say I mastered it....well I am going to) a loaf of french bread. I make the dough in the bread machine. Then I let it rise outside of the machine and bake it in the shape that I want...instead of the stubby loaf that the machine makes. Here is the proof:
Shaping it into a loaf!
Letting it rise!
Served with Meatball Soup - compliments of Jessie's hard work....meal group rocks!
Ed just kept shaking his head at me on Saturday mid morning. I was soooooo excited to watch it rise and then bake perfectly! I let out multiple squeals at different points in the process!
So what wedding gift do you need to brush the dust off....or what wedding gift has really been a favorite?
