Well, it was dead easy at first and things were going along quite well until the ominous sounding *crack* from machine. Yes. The shaft broke. I finished kneading by hand and we took the processor to the repair shop. It’s going to cost about $35 to fix it.

And how does +$35 bread taste?? We’ll find out tonight as we eat it with spinach salad and Mediterranean Chicken. I’ll let you know.
