Nothing beats homemade bread. Sure, the commercial ones are cheaper and convenient to get. There’s also a lot of variety in the market too.
But there’s something special about homemade stuff. The family gets involved and there’s a sense of growing excitement in the air. Everyone takes furtive peeks into the window of the bread machine as we wait expectantly for the bread to rise.
Very soon, as the machine works its magic, the smell of freshly baked bread wafts through the air, permeating our home with comfort and warmth. Such are the memories of love that we want to linger on for our children.
Finally, the machine beeps. My children whoop with excitement. The bread is ready. We gather around the table as the bread is being prepared to be sliced and served. Crusty on the outside but tender loving warm and soft on the inside. Nice.
So, to borrow MasterCard’s ad lines,
Bread ingredients: $10
Joy of baking homemade bread: Priceless
Guess, there are really some things that money can’t buy.
Happy Bread Making, everyone
