Why do you bake? What kind of baker are you?
In the world of knitting (and elsewhere) there's discussion about being a process knitter or one who knits for results. Paul's lament about running out of freezer space because he wasn't eating fast enough made me wonder about bread bakers. What kind are you?
I enjoy knitting, but mostly I like the results. Although how many lace shawls does a jeans-and-sweatshirt girl need?
And I do like to bake. But it's the results I'm more interested in. I love having good, fresh, healthy, homemade (by me) foods available to me. Sometimes it's the challenge. But I like to eat those good foods. I can't let my freezer empty out of homemade breads.
So, do you bake because you like the process of baking, or do you bake because you like the bread?
