Beautiful Bread and Banana-Brand Office Supplies

This is one of the beautiful loafs of bread made in our new Zojirushi bread maker. I'm so excited to see loaf shaped loafs after so many years of tube-shaped loafs. So far, only one of the 10 or so loafs I have made was not 100% beautiful like this. I think we may be exceeding our daily allowance of carbohydrates, but we sure are loving it.

While I'm blogging, I want to take the opportunity to talk about Banana brand office supplies. First, let me say that one of the great blessing in my life is working from home. Not only do I save gas and wear and tear on my car; but most importantly I get to spend lots of time with my family which I really enjoy. I'm home every day for lunch and get 2 hours back in my day by not commuting.

So, one day while I was working Jeremy brought me my 'lil Kinz polar bear (Owen) and set him up with his own computer made of paper. The next day, when I was on a phone call (wearing my headset), Jeremy made a headset for Owen. Then he and Marissa proceeded to duplicate every major component of my office -- printer, phone, calendar, etc. The really creative part is that these are Banana brand (not to be confused with Apple brand). They are produced in a factory owned by Jeremy's Cheeky Monkey WebKinz "Steve". Instead of iPhone, iPod, etc. They are uPod, uPhone, uDrink (water bottle), uPrint, uCal(endar). In the final picture, you may be able to see the uFrame (picture frame) with a picture of Owen's girlfriend (Susan's lil Kinz dog) "Olive".

The bread is beautiful! Question...Can you use just a regular bread recipe with the machine or do you have to use bread mixes?
Thanks, Theresa VanWetten
