I passed the test tonight. My toughest food critics scarfed down my homemade honey whole wheat bread I made. This was my first ever experience making bread from scratch without a bread maker. I'm hoping it's not beginners luck, because it did taste really good.
A few years back or more, my mom offered me her wheat grinder. I'm sure I looked at her kind of weird, like why would I ever want that. Being new in my homemaking skills, I had no idea how awesome this little machine could be. My mom then told me that is was quite expensive, which then caught my interest a little. And said, "sure I'll take it." Thinking, hopefully I will find use for it someday.
That day came today and now I do realize how amazing and coveted this machine is.
I used some of my food storage wheat and ground my very own wheat into flour. Pretty exciting, I know. It's even that much better because the bread tasted so good.
My new now goal is to make homemade bread on a regular basis and not buy it from the store anymore. Well, at least not nearly as often.
