a different kind of harvest month or two ago I bought a used breadmaker from eBay.  I've made a few loaves from boxed mixes and a few pizza crusts so far, but yesterday I made my first loaf from scratch.  I'm so proud of it!  It's a three seed loaf (poppy, sesame and flax) with a beautiful light and fluffy texture.  I found the trick is to check the dough 10 minutes into the kneading cycle.  It looked too sticky so I added a few tablespoons of flour and it came out perfectly.  It was pretty dang tasty.

This morning for breakfast I had cheese toast with another one of my RdMs. I reckon the flavour of the tomatoes is getting stronger, especially after they were under the grill for a bit. from my bread machine, tomatoes from my garden.  Couldn't get much more homey unless I made the cheese myself.  Speaking of which, perhaps a cheese-making course is in order...

I just found your blog and I love it. Im also trying to grow veggies & bake bread in inner city Melbourne. Ive heard Mozzarella is really easy to make. Perhaps you should give it a try too!

I have seriously considered taking a cheese-making course ... maybe one day!
