Bread 'n Honey

My super fab in-laws gave us a super duper bread machine for Christmas. The only problem was that when I went to bake some bread last week, the paddle (needed to knead) was missing. My sweet husband is the one who took the machine and components out of the box and set it up...in his words 'I never saw a paddle', so I just went from there and called the company who happily shipped out a paddle that same day....regular mail. Wait? Wait for fresh baked bread that I was sooo in the mood for right then?!?! What's a paddless gal to do? I waited. Till yesterday...*trumpets blaring* the paddle came in! I immediately opened the instruction manual...it's quite thick and intimidating...and followed the directions to make fresh honey wheat bread (got the mix in the box thang...it's about ease and instant gratification for me). A couple of hours later....right around dinner time, viola! Bread! I baked...my machine...baked BREAD! and it was gooooood. I barely waited the allotted cool down time and then sliced away. I cut my first slice in half. First half was slathered in butter. The second half was slathered in butter and topped off with honey...for dessert. YUMMMMM! Thanks Dee and Tom for a FABULOUS gift that will make sure a fresh carby loaf of bread isn't too far away :)

I love the smell of fresh baking bread! It's such a treat and I also, don't wait for it to cool down. That honey wheat bread looks sooo good! Especially with the honey drizzled all over! Yum!
