Falling In Love Again...

...with my bread machine :)

In my efforts to live on a tighter financial budget, I'm trying to make more of my meals than purchasing processed stuff. I've also discovered the cost-saving joy of shopping at Super Wal-Mart. Yes, I feel as though I've given into "the man" by frequently shopping there.


For the past two years, I've been controlling my cholesterol and blood pressure through practicing better nutrition and able to abandon medication. I can definitely feel the difference in how food makes me feel and when I put good things in, I'm at my best. Although bread isn't the best thing to control these things, I found some soy bread recipes. Pictured is today's white pizza. It ain't the prettiest thing, but tastes mighty damn good. Pretzels and maple-walnut bread were also made. I don't remember if Peter bought me the bread machine or if it was a gift from Furnace Creek, either way, it's one of the best gifts I've ever received.

Also this weekend, I stopped at the Tallahassee Greek Festival, which is held every two years. It was full of my kinda people - those who enjoy good food. Grabbed a gyro, did a quick walk around and returned home.

And contributing to my financial security, I wrote a complete trip report about Vancouver. View it here.
