Harry you have led a sheltered life. I was cooking and cleaning before leaving home at 18. Guess my mother thought I'd never get married..

18? What took you so long? I started about 10 or 11.

Steve, I left home at age 20 when I married the girl of my dreams who for the last 64 years has looked after me whilst I spent my time working very hard so there was no need for me to learn the domestic side of marriage.
I've had a charmed life, enjoying just about every day in the consumer electronics industry and being married to the perfect lady, what more could any man wish for.

Well, an embellishment might be a perfect loaf.

Bread maker ?? We don’t need no stinking bread maker .... (Adapted from Blazing Saddles) ...

I make all the bread we eat .....

For 3 big loaves:::

9 cups of bread flour ....

3 eggs.....

3 tablespoons of dry yeast, desolved in 2+ cups of warm water....
A little honey in the water for the yeast to eat ....

Some salt (never measure)....

Dump everything in the kitchen Aid mixer (dough hook)...
All the above takes 4-5 minutes....

When the dough is mixed good and doesn’t cling to the bowl,
dump it out on the cutting board... Kneed for 30 seconds...
Form into a dome, and let it rise until it doubles in size....
Tamp it down, divide into 3 loaves, place in greased bread pans....
Let it rise to desired size, bake for 25 minutes ....

That's far too complicated for me Kurt. My kitchen skills are limited to perfect boiled eggs, porridge from pre-mix, toast of course and cups of tea using tea bags. Oh, I can pour milk on cereals!

I made an error when I said that I hadn't used a washing machine, I just found one page of notes that Marlene left for me when she had a holiday in England about four years ago.

That is funny, she even left instructions for the microwave.

I thought you just put something in. enter 1:00 take it out.

If it is not hot do it for 30 seconds more. If need be repeat.

My wife does not let me get near the microwave.

Well what do you know, we finished the first loaf and it was just fine and today I cut the 2nd one as you can see. Marlene made toasted cheese sandwiches and they were delicious.
If my next one is perfect, probably on Monday, I'll show off with pictures.
