Cool. i hope you like it. :)

You know, if there is one thing about bread machines that drive me crazy it is that everything has to be so precise. With mine, you have to use a tablespoon to spoon the flour into the measuring cup then level it off with a flat edge. The water is suppose to be 80F and has to be measured in a liquid measure cup.

When I went to put the starting ingredients into the pan, I almost messed up. I thought hey I don’t have to worry so much about the temp of the liquid because it is going to be sitting for a day or so and will get to room temp on its own. So, when I measured it out, instead of using the container I usually use, because it is plastic and can go into the microwave, I just used a measuring cup that I would use for flour and poured it into a jar then measured out the 8th cup (2 T I believe) and added it to the jar.

Then I got to the yeast part and thought oh darn, I do have to make sure it is the proper temp, so I poured it into the plastic container I use for that and guess what? It was exactly 1 cup. I’ve always heard the liquid measure cup is different than the dry measure. So I got another 8th cup. I guess they tell you to do things a certain way for a reason. lol

I am going to try your chicken pot pie recipe. It looks good except for the Better Than Bouillon, I will leave that out. That has some powerful flavor enhancers in it and some people have bad reactions to them. Be sure you warn people if you serve it to some one who hasn't eaten it before.

It was absolutely delicious ... and reheated (nuked) leftovers were just as good the next day.
