Anadama Bread

Somehow I ended up taking a mini blog vacation. It wasn't intentional but last week was a bit hectic. It was my company's annual company meeting. I had long days. Mr. J was out of town, so it was my first time alone, overnight with Miss O. As luck would have it she got sick. Not fun. And then it was the 4th of July. My best friend came to celebrate and meet Miss O. Now here we are several days later and I still haven't posted. 

I have a bunch to say but am also not so motivated to type out everything currently in the works. So we are just going to speak bread. I am still on my homemade bread kick. Even with all of the hectic-ness of the last couple of weeks I have managed to crank out a new loaf each weekend. It seems to work out that one loaf gets us through the week. I use the bread for sandwiches and Mr. J enjoys toast in the morning. 

The bread this week was extra special. I made Anadama bread. I had never heard of Anadama bread till I moved to Maine. It is a New England thing. Basically it is white bread with cornmeal and molasses. It is sweet and filling. I love it. Pretty much the best time of bread for toast. 

I used my mom's bread machine again and it worked like a charm. Up next I am thinking we might need something a bit more healthy. Oatmeal or whole grain anyone?  Something tells me Mr. J would like to stick with the white bread.
