I never really tried making bread, I had a bread machine when they first came out but it didn't taste the same.

When the bread strike was on that time I got a recipe for oatcakes but that didn't work very well, you need to have the right environment.

I bought him a breadmaker he didn't use it for awhile, now he doesn't like any other bread now. He used to make bread, we've still got the big bowls he used. It must be ten years ago and then I think he gave up because I wouldn't eat his bread, it was too dense, you now what I mean. He's varied it from time to time, he gets an ingredient he likes and keeps at that.

They gave me a bread maker, I did it, it came out all wrong, something about the yeast, and the water. It came out like a brick. That's the bread that I threw in the garden and it nearly killed a bird. My Mum made bread, and she used to say you need two loaves for you kids! Oh bread with tomatoes, bacon, lovely dipped in the fat.
