Short bread

This is why one should not try to make bread at 5:30 in the morning on their children's first day of school......or at 5:30 in the morning on any day frankly.....

I'm sure it is the bread machine. Some sort of a design flaw. Couldn't possibly be my fault. Couldn't be that I forgot to add the yeast and water because I was too busy trying to get photo's of my adorable punks before they were walking out the door.....couldn't be that I finally noticed the yeast growing over the measuring cup and all over my kitchen counter causing me to frantically grab the frothing yeast, yanking open the bread machine lid, and throwing in the fungus thinking because it is a machine it should be able to fix it!

Must be the machine.......faulty machine.......


  1. I don't know - but I think I've seen this kind of bread before. More than once. I think we might start building a water=tight shed out back, in fact, with just this kind of bread. I'll have to check for sure . . .

  2. all the kids look so cute in their off to school photos. What a cute herd you have!
    And yeah, that bread looks familiar to me too, unfortunately.....

  3. I would still eat probably tastes like a cookie right??

  4. ooooooooo Rachel, That happens to me all the time. Its part of the reason that I don't make bread anymore.

    I am so thankful to have your blog to read.

  5. You make me laugh. I love checking in with you (not as often as I would like) via your blog. That bread is so funny. I can't make bread that's worth anything. I can sometimes pull off Rhodes dough. But have never had a good turn-out with my bread maker. I always blame it on the altitude.
