and we're making French bread today. husband has been pestering me to do this all summer as a means of cutting costs here and there. difficult child 2 helped me (as best he could) with the measuring, etc. His hands are so shakey from the Depakote But he seemed to enjoy our little moment together, and it was just long enough and novel enough to hold his attention so he could do what needed doing. I even got him to wipe up the mess and put the ingredients away! So now the machine is in the kitchen mixing away. We should have bread by dinnertime!
