I feel like I say this too much, but nowadays, I consider time to be my most precious commodity. Though truly, I also continually marvel at how blessed I am to have an abundance of love in my life. So, I definitely believe the scales fall heavily in my favor.
Still, I'm constantly trying to figure out how to manage, maximize and generally squeeze the most out my time. As a result, I don't bake this bread every week, but I think it's fair to say that I've thought wistfully of making this recipe every weekend since my first try over the summer.
The chewy texture and simple, comforting flavor repeatedly convinces me to stand over the kitchen sink and savor hot, thick slices moments after pulling the loaf out of the oven. I'm delighted that this recipe calls for a bread machine to do all the kneading, because otherwise, I'm not sure I'd ever get to enjoy that perfect, unreserved, embarrassing moment.
Note - I usually omit the sunflower seeds.
