And with this...

...we will call #9 of our 101 list officially DONE!  I made 6 loaves of bread last week and already have 2 going for this week.  The challenge actually became a habit and only about 5 times in the past 10 months have we bought bread. Actually, not included in the counts are the homemade pizza crusts that have made me known (not necessarily famous) with Boy's friends as the best pizza maker.  One even confided that I make pizza better than his mom, but "don't tell".  So it's our secret!

Sadly, my wonderful Wondermill is having issues.  The switch won't stay in the on position.  The company said, no problem, send it back and we'll fix it....but....but...but....that means I'll be without it for untold days and weeks....and what will I do??  And during Christmas baking season?  REALLY? (cue hysterical sobbing!)  OK, now that I have that out of my system.  I could grind ahead and put it in the freezer...but the freezer is FULL!  (This is a great problem to have!)  So I will wait a week or two and then ship it out and wait to do a happy dance when it gets back.

I'm so excited to finally mark something off the list.  I thought it would take almost 2 years to make 71 loaves of bread. Giggle.
