Baking Snafu

This was suppose to be a loaf of bread. I think it looks more like a chicken. I have successfully baked several loaves of bread using the bread machine I received for Christmas. This weekend, I decided to try a mult-grain bread. I used a pre-packaged bread mix. I just added the ingredients as directed, set the machine and left it. Boy, was I surprised when I took it out. Apparently, if I want nuts or fruits in the bread I have to hand knead the dough before the last rise. You have to make sure the nuts and fruits get blended in the dough. Well, the bread was eatable and tasted pretty good. I'm just not able to make sandwiches or toast with it.
