I haven't even been all that busy. Been playing a lot of games on my iphone :P (feel free to recommend me good ones!)

We're really starting to get into the swing of the bread baking thing now. I don't know if I wrote about it before, but Sam got this bread baking machine from Lolo for Christmas. I was opposed to the idea, because from experience I was really sure it would just take up a lot of space in our little kitchen and never get used :P It did take him a little more than a month to actually install it, and a couple more weeks after that again to try the baking, but now we've been baking a few! Sam is really into all the possibilities of recipes and things to add in the bread, but I'm mostly just happy to have proper home made bread that I can eat. It doesn't stay good for as long as the pre sliced ones we get from the supermarket, but it's so tasty. Really good! And a lot better for the body as well.

So far, so good! Now all we need is a bread knife :P

awesome. we got a bread maker too here and i LOVE it. i usually just use it now to kneed the dough and stuff though. once the dough is ready, then i take it out and bake it in the real oven - so it looks more like a normal bread! lol. or sometimes i make like little whole wheat rolls. yummy :D

now go buy a bread knife already!

But if you don't use it, what's the point? You just use it as mixer :P

we use it as a regular bread machine once in a while, but it does more than a mixer for dough. i mean, the timer tells it when to mix the dough, but also how long to let it rise, punch it down and so on, rise again, repeat and so on... so it's kinda convenient even for making dough. you just add whatever ingredients you decide on, set it to "dough" and then it goes through the whole process and you don't deal with it until you are ready to roll it and bake it. but like i said, sometimes we bake right in the machine too if we want that shape for loaves ^^
