I promised you the rest of the birthday story.  This is it.

I have a history with bread machines.  When they first came out, I wanted one.  My husband’s boss told him a KitchenAid was better, so my husband, wanting the best for me, got one. It was great…except that it didn’t make bread.  Dough, yes; bread, no.  So we got a bread machine.  As my husband said, the first loaf cost $250, the second only $125, and the cost kept dropping.  I made bread almost every day and waking to the scent of newly baked bread, thanks to a timer, was exquisite…until the horrible day when we woke to no scent.  The machine wasn’t broken, our noses had just adjusted.
