Thematic Photographic 320 - Homemade

Yeast, evolved
London, ON
October 2014
My favorite home appliance is, bar none, the bread machine. Which says something, because I'm also rather enamored of our kettle (tea) and microwave oven (oatmeal, endless rewarmings of soup.) But fresh-baked bread is such a staple of our wintry existence that I can't imagine our house without it.

On second thought, maybe it isn't the bread machine as much as it is my wife's ability to make the bread machine do all sorts of magical things. It's one of the things that, in her hands, makes our house a home.

So for the coming week, I'm hoping we can focus our lenses on stuff we make at home. Because despite our pre-processed, tech-forward existence, I'd like to think there's still room for the simple things that aren't manufactured or bought elsewhere, but made right where we live.

Simple, no? I look forward to seeing what you come up with.

Your turn: Take a picture and post it to your blog or website - or use one you've already taken and/or uploaded - that evokes this week's theme, homemade. Leave a comment here letting everyone know where to find it, and visit other participants to spread the photographic joy. Feel free to visit and contribute again throughout the week. And have fun, because Thematic is all about fun. For more background on how Thematic works, head here.

Unfortunately it is my brand new French Press coffee maker. Nothing homemade, but it sure make the best coffee I have ever had.

I love the smell of bread baking... luckily I live a couple of blocks from a bakery. :-)

Not bread but some Christmas fare.

Yummm the smell of fresh bread, better yet the taste of warm bread with a wee bit of unsalted butter! My mouth is watering now! lol

I'll be back to share a link once I post my homemade item(S)... 'tis the season!

Have a wonderful week Carmi!

Carmi, although you cannot eat this gingerbread guy, he looks great on the tree.

Finally, gosh I tried all last night to post my link but Blogger was being well, like Blogger does at times-oddly strange.
Homemade, handmade- given away especially- the best stuff ever!

Here's mine
