That sounds good! :-D

You should try making your own bread, it's pretty cheap. I started doing it a couple of weeks ago and it is so much better!

It can, I try to make it at night when everyone is asleep.

The recipe I use is:

3 cups buttermilk

1 cup of water

3 tbsp butter 

1 tsp salt

1tsp baking soda

2 tbsp sugar

5-6 cups flour

4 1/2 tsp yeast (or one packet instant yeast).

Mix the buttermilk, water, baking soda, sugar, salt, water and butter into pot to heat it.

Then put it into a bowl with four cups of flour and knead it and add the other two cups of flour as you go. You are going to knead it for about 8 minutes. Then knead it into a ball and place in a bowl with a cloth over it and let it rise for about an hour. 

Take it out and knead it again for a few more minutes cut it in half, to make two loafs, and then let it rise again for another hour. After it has risen, place it in the oven at 325 F for about 35-40 minutes.

It seems hard, but it's pretty easy. When you get the time you should try it. Also I like to take honey and glaze the top, gives it a good zing to it :)

You're welcome. 

Oh yeah tons. Dh loves bread, it's biscuits or bread with just about every meal, lol. I love how fresh it tastes when it first comes out of the oven. The fist loaf I made was hard as a brick though lol, I didn't let it rise long enough before baking it. Poor dh, he ate it anyway to make me feel better, I insisted on throwing it out, but he was like "no, no, it's good babe", haha. After time you get it down pat. I still haven't completely worked out my own kinks with it, but for the most part I seem to be getting better at it.
