Last week I bought a bread machine at a garage sale. It's not a particularly fancy model, but it was in good shape and lightly used.

Since then, we've been baking up a storm of carb-filled loaves. I've been working on a sourdough starter mix so I can start making sourdough bread in a few days or so.

It's not clear to me how anyone could own a bread machine and not use it. The process of making bread becomes so easy (measure, dump, depress button), that there is no excuse for eating store bought bread any more.
