Not to be confused with Bread and Circuses, Bread and Cars is the update on life this week. Well, actually, it's bread and one car. :)
First, the bread. A few days ago, while we were food shopping, I told Marc that I'd like to make a Chocolate Cherry Bread. This is a recipe I've used before, and it's pretty easy. Also, I haven't baked a bread in the oven in ages. Instead, this is the easy way. I put the ingredients in the bread machine, push a few buttons and wait a few hours. Really tough, huh? Well, hey, I do have to put the snipped dried cherries and chilled chocolate chips in at just the right time! :)
So here we go...
Bread machine at the ready
Bernice watches for bread thieves, so I can safely make bread
Dodger is not impressed
Mandy chose not to appear in this post. Something about renegotiating her contract.
A few hours pass, and then...
The finished product
Doesn't it look nice? Tastes great, too!
Now, fast forward a few days (to last night). What is this I spy in the driveway (all wet from the sleet we got this morning)?
Doesn't it have a pretty rear end? I love a pretty rear end!
Cute face, too!
And here's a full body shot!
Of course, I liked this car, or I wouldn't have bought it. But I'm already falling in love with it. It rides and handles like a dream. Plus, the technology in it blows away anything I've ever had in a car. You can tell it what you want to do, and I love that. It works seamlessly with my iPod (complete control is from the dash and steering wheel--and I can just tell it to play the iPod, as well as speaking dozens of other commands). It has something called "Intelligent Cruise Control" which stays at the set speed, unless we're getting closer than the set distance (that's something I can adjust) from a car ahead of us, and then it will back off safely.
I could go on and on, but I'll spare you that. The bottom line is that I love it!
