This week has been so sunny and pretty! I had a great score at the thrift store this weekend, I found a Zojirushi Home Bakery Bread Machine! I have a Zojirushi rice cooker, and I love it so much that I still smile when I see it. I really don't know why it ended up there!!!!! I love Zojirushi, and I always wanted their brand of breadmaker, but never had the money for it! I had one when I was about 23 and it didn't work well, so I never really wanted one unless it was this brand, and for some reason it was at Goodwill!
So I happily brought it home, and even though I tested it out at the store, but I thought maybe it would not work halfway through, or something, because this was too good to be true! I did a white bread test run, and it was great, so I feel really lucky!
Here is tuna sandwiches with the new bread!
It was a baking supply score day at the thrift store, because I also bought nice heavy measuring cups and these mini tart tins from Sweden!
Seriously, I scour the baking aisle at my thrift store, and never find stuff like this!!!! There were over 20 in the bag! So I made these Financiers to try them out, and they were good, but I think they were too cake like. I think they were more of an Almond cake, I think I maybe put too much butter in the mix. I know that I have seen a few recipes on blogs that have recipes like these, and that is why I wanted to make something similar, but these were sort made on an impulse and I didn't have time to search, so I think that next time I am going to take the time and do better research!
Here are some shots of our yard, Casey took this Ladybug, I think it is precious!
