It was this years venison and it was delicious including the leftover cold meatloaf sandwiches :D Ive changed my mind on the first breadmaker dinner and decided to make sure it is working properly so I have a loaf of French bread baking now ;)

oooh, had not had French bread in a looooong time.

Did you know there are restaurants in Chicago that have fresh French bread flown into O'Hare airport daily?

Did you know French people buy their French bread in the early morning hours at their local bakery to have with their morning coffee?

Baker, butcher, candle stick maker...wow!!! you got talents :D

The loaf looks dense, French bread is known to be filled with lots of air. Your recipe might be from the South of France, the Riviera. :o

It is like a baguette loaf as far as consistency.

Save me a slice :D

Did your machine mix the dough?

Did your machine come with an owners manual? I need to try some quick breads someday...maybe a carrot bread or banana :hungry:

One of the joys of life is the smell of fresh baked bread and fresh brewed coffee. and a campfire :D

Yes, the machine mixed the ingredients. I have another bread machine so was familiar with the proper addition of the ingredients. Unfortunately, the machine did not come with a manual but I downloaded a PDF file of it.

I really like the machine...doesn't take up much counter space and can bake meatloaf and chickens :D and French bread

Glad you found one locally for a finskie that's French for 5 bucks :lol:

My wife introduced a new appliance today for discussion. A Toastmaster oven, bread maker etc. read about it

Toastmaster Bread Baker’s Hearth

http://www.breadmachinedigest.com/revie ... hearth.php

She found one on craigs list for $50.00 when they were still available they retailed for 200.00 They are no longer manufactured.

Toastmaster Bread Baker’s Hearth......hmmm...interesting in that it is multi purpose. How much bigger is the loaf pan? The unit seems as big as a microwave? Where does that fit on your downsizing movement? :o :lol: have to keep mama happy and she was not about to be out done by your little bread machine :lol: :DP:
Maybe you could install one of these to increase versatility :P

Or better yet, this is more like Zelph's repertoire ;)

The loaf pan looks the same size as mine. My wife did not tell me what the base size is of the combo oven to know counter space required. I prefer my unit for size.

hehe, ovens come in many sizes :mrgreen:

From your mother earth link:

Another key design element is the firebox size — not too small, not too large, but just right. Properly sized fireboxes heat up quickly, have improved combustion, produce less smoke and stay hotter longer. We measured cookie sheets, bread pans, medium and large roasting pans, canners and baking dishes to arrive at our optimal firebox size of 13 inches wide by 28 inches deep by 13 1/2 inches high.
