I dreamed of a wedding of elaborate elegance; a scene filled with flowers and friends. I asked him what kind of wedding he wished for; he said one that would make me his wife.
One of our wedding gifts was a lovely Oster bread machine.  I was so excited when I opened it.  Yesterday I unpackaged it and went out on the hunt for bread ingredients. 

I was a little intimidated of the whole process.  The instructions scared me. They talked about the importance of VERY precise measurements. Eek!  At one point after it told me the order in which to add ingredients into the pan it said "Never let the wet and dry ingredients touch."  Um, excuse me?  Don't they HAVE to touch in order to add them into the bread pan.  The picture even had the two touching.  Someone apparently didn't have a good editor look over their booklet...

Anyway! Here's my stash for making the bread for Thanksgiving at the O'D's!

Please excuse the picture quality... these were taken from my phone :)

I spent like what seemed forever measuring ingredients and adding them to the bread pan and finally got it
into the machine.

MMMMMMM... you know that looks good! You know you want some! ;)

Three hours later:

This is a one and a half pound loaf! Dense! It was late when I finished it, so I have yet to taste test it
but I will definitely have some with dinner tonight and let you guys know how it turned out. I am hoping
it turns out really good or at least decent because I have to bring some loaves for Thanksgiving at the O'Donnell household! Keep your fingers crossed for me!


Other shenanigans this weekend included lots of returning wedding gifts and buying new ones! Hooray! Duplicates are great!  My favorite item from the weekend was our new Duvet cover from Macy's. We originally registered for one that we liked and it was on sale now for $199 just for the duvet cover. We purchased a different one we love for $39 on clearance!! Sweet!

And now for a close up!


It was a very productive/fun weekend!
