Yesterday I got the Bosch mixer and the wheat grinder all set up. I only use the Bosch for making wheat bread so I set both those items up downstairs. I have my old Kitchen Aid set up upstairs but haven’t used it yet. I had planned to send treats to work with Vince Friday but since we ended up with no a/c on Thursday, that kinda screwed up that plan.
Anyway . . wheat was ground and I made whole wheat bread. It’s been way too long since we had homemade bread. With Chad not here and Vince not coming home for lunch, we’re using way less bread than we did in MO. I made three small loaves and froze two in the bread pan before letting it rise and will see how that works.
Earlier in the week I sprouted some mung beans so we have bean sprouts for our salads. I think these about got away from me and were fixing to produce beans! That’s what a HOT kitchen will do for you . . just don’t try keeping bananas fresh in a kitchen this hot. 🙁
I love the lighting in this kitchen. There’s a regular overhead light that works off one switch. Then there are four smaller canister ceiling lights that work off another switch. There’s a light over the sink that works off another switch and there are under cabinet lights that work off another switch. And there’s a huge window that lets in lots of light and heat! This is my first experience with black appliances. While I wouldn’t turn down a house I love because of black appliances, I surely wouldn’t put them in if I were choosing.
Almost every day Vince or I say “too bad this house won’t work for us” but it won’t. There are several “must haves” that it doesn’t have and several “cannot haves” that it has — like close neighbors for one. Ughh . . why do people have dogs that bark non-stop?
