Breadmaking Success & Zoo Food!

I just had to share that I finally managed to make edible bread! Mind you, one other loaf was decent (there have been 3) but the dinner rolls I made last night blew all other attempts out of the water. The difference? I only made the dough in the breadmaker, then finished it off by hand, and baked it in the oven. I'm hoping that if this works for buns, it'll help the loaves as well.

I can't believe we're coming to the close of Day 7! It's already starting to become an automatic thing of planning things in advance. Today we went to the zoo with friends, so we packed a lunch (normally we'd make a Tim run on the way there and buy lunch at the park). An added bonus was instead of feeling awful for eating junk all day, we had a steady supply of healthy treats with us.

Our Zoo Lunch/Snacks:

Carrot Sticks
Ham & Cheese Bunwiches (on my lovely rolls!)
Bread with Creamed Honey

Oh, and by the way- when was the last time you had air popped popcorn with real melted butter and salt? You gotta try it- it's SO good! It made me wonder why on earth anyone would want to eat that microwave bag stuff! Challenge or no challenge, I'm not going back:)
