Who would have thought...

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?

ok, so i think this qualifies in a weird way.
we got a deep fryer (not from registry) for our wedding. i think mostly someone feeling bad for jason marrying an RD. anyway, it's NEVER been used. it's been 3.5 years and still never used. haha. no plans to pull it out anytime soon, though!!
a wedding gift i LOVE and use all the time (get ready to laugh) is the paper shredder!! given to me with love from raina p roeder!

Paper shredder huh!? Isn't it funny how good of friends you guys have become and she gave you a paper shredder...such an impersonal gift but your most used...that's how it goes though!
