Little Tiny Packets of Cute Bread Mixes....

Several years ago my parents got me this really great breadmaker for Christmas. I don't utilize it nearly as much as I should. And the main reason-pure laziness.

I don't like to get all the ingredients out each time and get flour everywhere and then realize I am out of instant milk or something like that. So the other day I decided to go ahead and mix up all the dry ingredients in quart bags. Now all I have to do is add the wet ingredients and pour it all into the bread maker.  I think I can handle that since the wet ingredients consist of warm water and butter pats.

I saw this done on a blog a long time ago and finally got it done myself. I only had enough ingredients for three packets, but I got more today so I hope to make some more.

I have no excuses now.

As an aside my mom got me this awesome Taste Of Home Canning book.  Oh me, its eye candy for the home-preserver. My mom knows me so well and it was like Christmas!  Yep, I'm nutty about stuff like this.

Now I have a whole bunch of recipes to try, but not a whole bunch of time.:)

Today I am linking up at Raising Homemakers.


  1. I used to love it when Mom made homemade bread.

  2. Oh Jill, me too. I loved it when we would get home from school and there would be hot fresh bread for us. Momma-you are the best!

  3. Man I need to hang out with you more.. I need a good homemade bread recipe.. I have a hand me down bread machine but no recipes. :-(
