Freshly baked loaf
I think it has been about ten years since the first time I wanted to make homemade bread. Now finally I got around to it, since money does not grow on trees, the economy is tough, and I don't have a full-time job (except for being a mother!). Now I am regretting I haven't done this earlier - not because it is cheaper but because it is fun and tastes so good! Not to mention the look on my husbands face when he comes home and smells the aroma :)Priceless. It is sad indeed to read the list of ingredients …
