Look At My Bread!
So, I've been making some changes, slowly but surely in our house. I have a hate for High Fructose Corn Syrup and want to keep it as far away from our house as possible. I have a GREAT breadmaker that I got for free from some friends (thank you MacDonalds!) and have decided to stop buying bread from the grocery store. It is healthier and cheaper to make from home. It is almost impossible to find grocery bread that doesn't have HFCS in it. I do the dough in the bread machine then take it out to do the second rising and put it in the oven. Homemade deliciousness! I like the bread shape when I bake it in the oven myself. The bread maching makes the bread more square-shaped and doesn't last as long.
I addes some sprouted wheat berries to my bread this time too. I didn't add to many because I wasn't sure whether or not it would disrupt the science of breadmaking but it didn't seem to mess it up.
Oh, it tastes so good. And smells so good. Mmmmmmmmm.....
I've also been making our own yogurt which is soooo much cheaper as well, and doesn't have any weird additives in it. We eat a LOT of yogurt at our house. When you are living on a budget a few dollars can go a long way.
I'll probably be posting some more food changes in the near future but I wanted to share pictures of my pretty bread loaf.
