On a visit with her new grandchild, my MIL brought their breadmaker. They hadn't used it in more than a year, so they gave it to us! She also brought a bag of whole grain wheat, an unopened jar of yeast and cooking oil (ie. all the leftover breadmaking ingredients they had).
I'm very excited! I have made bread before, but I've always had to do it the long way by hand. Now that I have a little one, I think it'll be nice to make bread by dumping ingredients in the machine & forgetting about it for a few hours. I've already made a loaf of whole wheat bread (which is pretty much gone except for one heel, so there's no photos).
If anyone has any good recipes that can be adapted to a bread machine, let me know!
