Getting Back to Basics: Easy Bread

Getting Back to BasicsI must admit something. I’ve been distracted lately with various projects and family issues, and my domestic efforts have gone by the wayside.

Do you ever go through these times? Whether due to work or whatever, cooking and cleaning can occasionally take the back burner.

I’ve been trying to push myself out of this obviously un-frugal way of doing things, but doing my usual cooking seemed overwhelming. Attempting to look for recipes–or even simply cook familiar ones–was just too much. Honestly, it was just easier to order out for dinner.

So I decided to get back to basics, so to speak.

My husband had asked for some yummy baked goodies. And what’s easier than a good homemade bread, right? Well, he’ll be waking up tomorrow morning to coffee and toast with butter. Just good, old-fashioned cooking.

After a tiny bit of searching, I decided to try this recipe. As it’s just the two of us, I made the smaller loaf in my bread machine.

The result? We did have an issue with my bread machine, which caused some frustration, but the bread came out wonderful and was oh-so-easy. We have some tasty bread just waiting for a generous spread of butter.

And even better, I’m getting back to my frugal basics.
