In a prior blog entry we've mentioned the possibility of using a breadmaker on a narrowboat. Mick likes his bread! I talked about this with Diane when she came up for lunch a couple of weeks ago. They way she gets around the fresh bread problem is buying part baked bread or rolls. They don't need to be stored in the fridge and can even be cooked in a microwave. At £1.49 for the small loaf below it's reasonably economical too. We did notice that bread was much cheaper in the UK than it is here at home. We're paying up to $4 a loaf but last October in the UK we bought a really nice loaf of bread for around £1 - better than half the price.
