I recently went yard-saling and hit paydirt on some great items! One of the items that I found, never really wanted one, was a bread machine. I LOVE to make bread, but working a full-time job, gardening, canning, etc. doesn't allow much free time to do it, so I thought, okay, we'll get it an try it out. It was CHEAP, so I knew I could just give it away if I didn't like it. I brought it home, set it up beside a crock pot full of beef stew, put in my ingredients, set the delay bake option, and when I got home that night, was tickled to find the bread and the beef stew ready to be eaten (at 8:30 just as we arrived back home from my son's football practice). I left the house that morning at 7:00. The meal they would have received had I needed to cook that late would have been a hot dog. The bread it makes is not as good as what you make with your hands. Perhaps I am partial because I love to make bread, but there it is. It is fresh bread though, and that is always better than store-bought. The problem came when i tried to store the "fresh bread". This machine makes a HUGE loaf, much wider than I had a container for. So, I repurposed an old bag that a new comforter set came in. I ripped it apart at the seams, sandwiched it between a layer of muslin and a layer of quilting fabric and it was done. It turned out pretty good, but for me the most important thing is that it worked! I have always been one to purchase bread at the farmer's market also, so i plan to make on for the round shaped loaves that I purchase there. And, it is machine washable, but I don't want to dry mine in the dryer, I'll hang it up to dry. It was a fun little project to do, looks cute sitting on the counter, but it also serves it's purpose well! I am not very good at sewing, so you will have to overlook the mistake I made, but here it is below.
