Last weekend I got to celebrate Christmas all over again. It was a lovely time with delicious enchilada casserole and rich chocolate peanut butter rice krispie treats. But one of the best parts of that night was that I got a bread machine!
I’ve been wanting one for a while now and had pretty much given up thought of getting one anytime soon so I was thrilled when I tore off the wrapping paper to see it sitting there.
I made my first loaf this past Friday and am very pleased with how it turned out. I actually put all the ingredients into the machine Thursday night but thanks to the awesome delay timer the machine has, the bread didn’t start baking until 4am. It was done at 7am, shortly before I normally wake up. So I got to have bread for breakfast!
I am so excited to start making bread on a regular basis. I am hoping that I’ll make it and like it often enough that I can use homemade bread instead of buying it in the store. I just made the basic white bread recipe this time but the manual says I can use any bread machine recipe in this thing! I can’t wait to start making fruit breads and sweet breads.
