I started a huge, triple-batch of sandwich bread this morning and Sierra wanted to watch. After I mixed up water, sugar, yeast, salt and oil, she said, "now you add the flour and put it in the mixer to make dough". I told her I was gonna do it by hand and she informed me that I was wrong, it was supposed to go in the mixer. Then we had this conversation:
Me: Well, in the old days, they always made bread by hand
Sierra: But momma, these are the NEW days, and we put it in the mixer

Don't get me wrong, I love my kitchen-aid mixer, but this is 6 cups of water and 16 cups of flour, no way it was going in the mixer!!

Just a benefit of bread making ;-) We've been buying bread for a couple of months and I forgot how much better homemade is...we ate an entire loaf in about 6 hours.
