I’m sure I’m not alone in this – there’s a tremendous amount of “stuff” in my home. Things that I don’t need, often things that I acquired as gifts or on a lark and then put in the basement or attic and forgot about.
This weekend, I decided to go mining through the basement and put some of it to use. I dug out a homebrewing kit that my brother-in-law gave me for Christmas a couple of years ago and set up my first batch of beer — I’ll tell you how that worked out in another 26 days. And I fired up a bread machine that my sister-in-law gave us and made a delicious loaf of hot, fresh bread to go with last night’s chili dinner.
