|Weekly ration of bread .. pic by Mrs. Mac|
Hubby and I have been checking around for a flour mill. I'd probably prefer one that is manual .. but with my right shoulder feeling pain from an injury last year .. electric seems a better fit with the amount of flour we would have to mill each week. Next month is my birthday .. and the one I am interested in (Nutrimill Grain Mill) is currently on sale .. so it got ordered a few days ago. I'm excited to take our bread making one step further by milling our own flour. This will probably be our only major kitchen purchase this year.

I picked up the nifty bread slicer at a local thrift store. It's shaped for bread machine loaves .. but can be used with my oven baked bread. It cost a whole 99 cents. Using it gives very uniform slices .. unlike my previous freehand slicing produced. There's nothing like the smell of baking bread wafting through the house. Are you a bread baker? If so, what's your preferred method for making it?
