Ok, back to the Kitchenaid. I guess proving that I will actually use all of these fun new "toys" got me the mixer. In the last 3 months I have been trying to find any excuse to use it. I've made mashed potatoes, frostings, cakes, truffles and today I decided to make my FIRST bread! (Ok, we're talking a "quick" bread...no yeast needed.) I had some very ripe bananas that were ready to be trashed when I decided to find a recipe for banana bread. It seemed simple enough so I got out the mixer and away I went. I was quite nervous being that this was the first non-boxed "bread" I've ever made. Especially with everyone telling me how difficult t is to bake here because of the high altitude. After only 20 minutes the house smelled fabulous...what I hoped was a good sign.
And success!! After letting it cool, I popped it out of the pan and cut into it. Perfect! :) I'm so proud. I just wish there were someone here to share it with. I know I won't eat all of it so I'll probably take it into work.
Don't worry Ronnie, I'll make one just for you when you come home.
