i can't express my frustration and anger right now. oh my gosh . . i worked so hard from like at least 1 or 2 am until now (now almost 5 am) putting together a dinner roll recipe for tomorrow's easter party with our family. because the amount was so large it was filling all the way up to the top of the kitchenaid mixer, completely covering the part where the paddle fits onto the machine with that spring-like part. i kept having to push the mixture down with a spatula to keep on mixing and then i noticed some black goop and realized OMG now i have to throw this whole thing out! i cannot feed my family knowing that some black goop is in the food, . .. i am so depressed right now, dont want to ruin anyone's day just want to know if this has ever happened to anyone else and can share my pain . . omg i cant even believe this i was working for hours and it was perfect and now this . . . .
