domestic me, innovative me

An author suggested that with today's "modern kitchen tools," baking bread isn't as difficult as it sounds, which makes me think:

"I don't use 'modern kitchen tools' (unless you're referring to a wooden spoon and a stainless steel mixing bowl) and it's still not as difficult as you think."

I'm not sure what it says about me that I look forward to going home and baking up two batches of white bread, and spending 4 hours doing it.

But there's just nothing quite as satisfying as this at 11:30 at night:


And then, my kitchen prowess went south this morning when I broke our coffee pot (!!!), and had to catch the black liquid in a bowl:


Then I realized there's a black lever that the coffee pot presses against to release the coffee, and so I stood there with a butter knife pressed against the lever until the coffee was brewed. Talk about a time waster in an already-pressed-for-time morning.

THEN, I couldn't even drink the coffee because a) it was terrible, and b) it had grounds in it.

I think I should just stick to baking bread.
