Blogging & Baking Don't Mix

I have had this photo sitting in my Blog Photos file for a little while now. A little history. Steve bought this great K-Tek mixer and the wheat grinder for me for Christmas when we had been married for about 1 or 2 years, almost 20 years ago. They both have worked very well with no issues for all of this time. My mixer can mix 4 loaves of bread at a time! It is great!

Onto to my post. I am always multi-tasking! I clean starting in one room and end up cleaning another as I put things away from the first room. Well I had just finished mixing the bread and was needing to put some things away while I just let the bread rest a minute before shaping my loaves. I had to go up to the office to put things away and there sat my computer begging for a blog. I could not disappoint and I blogged. Oh, no.....bread!

I ran downstairs to find the bread trying to make it's way out of the bowl, hoping to find the bread pans and the oven!

I have learned that Blogging and baking just don't mix for me! So to speak!

Another plug for my great K-Tek mixer: The bread kneads enough dough for 4 loaves of bread for 10 minutes after the initial mixing of ingredients and then I just shape my loaves, raise for 20 min and then bake! Voila! I have tried to do this in my KitchenAid and it just can't quite handle 4 loaves at a time for 10 minutes of kneading. This is not a paid advertisement! You will have to find your own link!

If you only knew how much I love homemade bread and how dang good that looks!! That is ONE area I am domesticated in and that's making bread and rolls. I can actually do it, I just don't very often!
