Ever done or tried something new and wondered "why haven't I done this before?" Well, that's been my experience with my new bread maker.
How long have breadmakers been around? Twenty, maybe twenty five years? Well, call me a late adopter. My breadmaker came into my life three weeks ago, courtesy of Action Man. After reading many blogs mention their breadmakers, I'd been muttering about getting one myself, but never got around to it. Typically, Action Man made it happen, and brought me home a brand new bread maker.
What a revelation! So easy! So little time required of me! (I can get the ingredients together for a loaf of wholemeal bread in 31/2 minutes) Most importantly, such nice bread! And no preservatives.
My breadmaker has been in daily use ever since, sometimes even twice a day.
Once this baby's cost is amortised, and this shouldn't be long, I reckon I'll be saving at least $10 a week on the food bill.
A great addition to the household routine.
By the way, if you are thinking, "I thought Paola had an intolerance to wheat." Well, on that score, my stomach irritations have improved a lot over the last month or two. I try to limit wheat intake, but I haven't eradicated it. Also, one of my commenters, (I can't remember who, I'm sorry), mentioned nuts as another culprit. Well, seeing that I was eating handfuls of nuts a the time, I thought I'd cut back there too, for my stomach and my waistline's sake. And I'm much better. So I can eat some of this lovely bread. Yay!
