Bread making was a domain which I always wanted to enter but feared to get hurt.
Watching the dough rising was exciting, however without proper tools like bread mixer( I am not as strong s a Italian mama ), big oven.....and so on, the result could be so disappointing. Usually, Ｉ spent the whole day of time and effort on weighing flour, kneading and shapping dough, letting the dough rise and baking , at the last, I had to promote the bread so hard to my own family ( sometimes forced them to eat 'em ). Therefore, even my husband had asked me for many times, I was just reluctant to try it again.
Last Christmas, longing for eating the self-made bread, my husband bought a bread making machine as my Christmas present. Now, I can finally enter this taboo domain boldly. I am still in the exploraiton stage thus will need more practice and study. However, first time for years, I can finally produce decent bread by my self.
After a whole day of work, my husband may smell the bread baking fragrant before stepping into the hallway that is also a simple but refeshing happiness........
