Ooh, myyyy preeeesssshhhhusssss.
Can you picture me whispering that sinisterly while stroking a golden ring? No? Yeah, me either.
Only my precious isn’t a golden ring. It’s this:
This is my Nutrimill grain grinder. I love it. Sometimes, I think I might want to marry it. The Chick Magnet loves it too, so he might be okay with that.
When I tell people I grind my own wheat to make my own bread, they usually look at me like I have grown a second head.
“What? You grind your own grain? You must spend all day in the kitchen! You must be crazy! (Okay, that part is debatable). You must have no life. I could never do that. That just sounds too hard! And why in the world would you ever want to do that anyway?”
Ohhhh, my pets. Allow me to demonstrate just how lazy I truly am with the following tutorial titled, “How to Grind Wheat”. Alternately titled, “Please don’t look at the messy kitchen in the background, or my crazy post-workout-haven’t-had-time-for-a-shower-yet-hairdo, or my arm flab because you know I’m super sensitive about that, and yes, I do realize that my bra strap is showing, thanks for pointing that out though, ever observant blog reader.”
On second thought maybe you should notice those things because then you will understand just how lazy I am-too lazy to clean my kitchen or take a shower ro fix my hair and apparently my bra strap, and you will finally be convinced that you, too, can grind your own wheat. And your name doesn’t even have to be Laura Ingalls or The Little Red Hen.
Step 1. Plug in grinder
Step 2. Pour in wheat (purchased at Wal-mart for $12.88 for a 25-pound bag)
Step 3. Get an upper body workout by putting the lid on.
Step 4. You will want to pay close attention to this one. Turn. Grinder. On.
Step 5. Take a break from all of that hard work.
Step 6. Ooh and aah over your beautiful, fresh flour.
Step 7. Store flour in the freezer to preserve its freshly-ground goodness.
Step 8. Thank your hard-working Nutrimill. Kissing it is optional.
Step 9. Go take a nap. You deserve it!

Disclaimer: I was not paid anything to write this post. I just really, really, really, really, really love my Nutrimill. I, maybe even more than the Nutrimill (I know, sacrilegious right?), I love providing healthy, homemade breads and baked goods for my family. Although, I did enter to win the Nutrimill and if by chance I get it, I will give it away on MY blog.
You like apples? How about them apples? (You get my undying respect and a gold star if you can tell me where that quote came from.)
