Is it possible to have a functional cook/baker without a stand mixer?

Okay, here is the scenario, I am a new cook and also dabbling into baking. This new venture is due to me wanting to eat better, plus a whole lot of time on my hands, and not being so dependent on going out to eat when I want "....". So, I have a hand mixer currently and a mini food processor. I can get the Cuisinart 14-cup Elite Food Processor at an awesome price. That said, if I make this purchase, the idea of buying a stand mixer is out of sight (and out of mind and money) until way into 2010. However, I still want to be able to make doughs, pastas, desserts (think of this on a limited scale as I cook for one nearly 80% of the time). Do I miss out on baking/pastry functions with relying on a food processor and hand mixer?

I feel like I could get a little more versatility with the FP as it has a dough function and will still do all of the basic food processing functions. What are your takes, which would you pick first?
