Thanks, that is nice of you guys to say. We use to have irrigated pastures, which I miss although they were a lot of work. I love the beautiful "natural green" pictures on this board, and the gardens. Such a collection of talent! As it is for me DH won't let me cut back our grape vine (our only "fruit bearing plant) b/c he believes he will get the grapes before the birds do.

There is just as much horse sense as ever, but the horses have most of it.

4. Pounce on bread the second it’s done. Eat while still hot enough to burn fingers.. sans butter!

Whew! *wipes brow* That was hard work!

Seriously, ya’ll work too hard at it. The machine mixes, kneads, rises, and even sings it a lullaby before baking it. Tastes every bit as good as when fresh from a regular oven, no matter the kind. Promise.
I will NEVER be without one and it’s the reason I shelled out major bucks for the Zorjirushi Supreme.

(Note the number and rating of the reviews- )

Fly- Love the canning and baking thread idea! I can torture all you normal folks with my weird flours!

The processing one? Well…. I’m a ninny these days so not sure how often I’ll hang out there. I pay the Mennonites a buck eighty-five to do the dirty deed for me.
Also sounds like it’s high time I try edamame.
I'm with you on the bread maker - I love boasting that I've just made all my bread for the week - the hardest part is washing the thing!!
Also makes jam really well.

Yeah, Lockwood, I didn't know there was a machine like that - almost like cheating. Thanks for the info!

I have 216 seedlings under lights in the house but I;d love to get the peas and lettuce in the ground.

Its called a Breadman Pro. It says it also makes pasta and bakes though I've never tried either, the pasta sounds beyond what I want to do and I'm avoiding baking till I get my weight back to normal (says she who is sitting here munching a shortcake biscuit (cookie))
Delfina - I have my seedlings in clear plastic crates that I bought from Home Depot. That way I can have them under lights in my mechanicals part of the basement when its cold and carry them outside to get natural light when its OK - seems to harden them off better

You might as well donate that there chair though, it looks like you won't have time to use it. :)
That would be about right. The chair complains because it doesn't get enough butt traffic.

Yep, just like Jaydee said. They don't do the processing, but if you dump everything in according to their recipe, out comes a sticky yummy mess ready to be put in jars and water bathed.
I've made several jam recipes using it.
It also bakes cakes (loaf shaped of course, but yummy anyway) and I make the best cinnamon swirl bread in mine, all crusted over with cinnamon suger baked on top.

It makes dough, bagel dough, sour dough starter, sweet breads line banana, and of course any yeast bread you can think of.
Even the cheap Sunbeam brand ones from the discount store do the jams too.

I haven' had store bought bread in years. Partly because of our gluten issue, but also because what I make at home tastes so much better.
Heck, I even bake my corn bread in it... and sometimes I will mix up a batter in a bowl, but bake it in the machine for ease.

Shut up will you. My bathroom floor is covered in summer jeans that I can't fasten up this morning - minor temper tantrum. Now here you are taunting me with yummy food ideas
