While I’m not complaining about the much-needed rain we’ve been having, it does make me change my menus a little bit! I dusted off my bread machine (which hubby says has a Lot of dust from in frequent usage!) and made this simple loaf of Maple Oatmeal Bread. We had it with a nice roast chicken dinner and tonight I’ll serve the last of it with the chili that’s in the crockpot.
