But I hadn't planned on it!!
So we aren't the richest people in the world, we aren't poor either, but I have to budget for the toys I want, right? Who doesn't these days. I've been wanting some computer parts for a new PC for a while now and have been saving for them... Today at lunch I walked into the bookstore with some time to kill and walked out with their only copy of "The Breadmaker's Apprentice". Ouch, most of $40. I guess that new video card will have to wait until next payday, eh? :)
However, wow, just wow. I've only read portions of it (getting ready to settle into a comfy chair with some scotch and the book) but already I can tell it's awesome. I just need more time in the day to work his recipes. Man, they look awesome.
Pics, blog posts, and thoughts to come! Thanks all for recommending this incredible book. I wouldn't have even looked at it without all the great praise I've read on these boards.
