a small change I've made this summer

I decided about May to stop buying bread.  We have this great bread machine. Why not use it more often? I make about 2-3 loaves a week and it has been working out great. I discovered that my machine has a timer so I can put it in at night and wake up to yummy fresh bread.  I tried whole wheat but it was just a bit too heavy from the machine so at the moment we just make white or partial wheat.  I am hoping to find a lighter  recipe or better yet as the weather becomes cooler start making it by hand and cooking in our oven.  The first month I would forget that we needed bread until it was too late, now it is just part of what we do.

I am hoping to make a change like this every few months.  I'm thinking granola bars next.


  1. I have been wanting to do this for about a year now! I tried to convince Dave that we should invest in a bread machine (he does after all work part time for Williams-Sonoma) but for whatever reason he was not really keen on that idea, which is really funny since he loves gadgets! So I did for a bit attempt to bake bread once a week in our oven but for whatever reason it never stuck as part of our routine! You have inspired me to give it another try! Thanks, friend! I cannot wait to hear about the granola bars!

  2. And the bread is delicious. Just another wondeful thing you do for your family. Love all of you dearly. XXX000
