Thanks Mom and Auntie!

Since my old bread machine shit the bed, Mother and Auntie lovingly sent me a brand spanking new Zojirushi Home Bakery Bread Machine. Zoji just made her inaugural loaf, piping hot Heavenly Whole Wheat bread. It came out beautifully shaped, delicate and flavorful. I'm very excited! My old maker worked okay but this thing is amazing. I'm looking forward to trying a new recipe for Broccoli Cheese bread to take with me to book club tomorrow evening.

By the way, the book is The Memory Keeper's Daughter by Kim Edwards. I just finished reading it. I was surprised to see such lukewarm reviews on Good Reads. It was touching and beautifully written, the beauty of the prose making up for the perhaps overly sappy content. I loved it and won't soon forget it.

What are you currently reading?

If you haven't yet shared your Last Chance Victory, please do. Don't just lurk, I'm always interested in what you have to say.


  1. uh oh...I was lurking! :)

    I've read the Memory Keeper's Daughter as well. It was some tough content to read, but good overall. It's been a while since I've read it so I don't remember too well!

  2. Never tried a bread machine ... you make it sound fun. I read The Memory Keeper's Daughter. Book Club members were split on the wisdom of the husband's actions. We kept in mind the tenor of the times when it took place .... Fostered great discussion.
    Anyway, enjoy your great gift!
