WHAT I'M GOING TO CALL HER
What's a girl to do when she needs to complete the Christmas Baking but her old mixer has met an untimely demise?
All the ingredients have been purchased, kitchen cleaned, sewing put on hold, and recipes chosen. But No Mixer!!! The hand mixer is out of the question. A pound cake just can't get that light texture without the power of a good stand mixer. Ask me how I know??? Trust me...there's nothing worse in the baking world than to have your pound cake "FALL" along with 6 fresh farm eggs, Madagascar Bourbon Pure Vanilla Extract purchased at Jim's Steakhouse in Suwanee, Tn., Swans Down Cake Flour, and sticks of Land O Lakes sweet cream butter! The MIXER can make a difference in success or failure when it comes to Baking!! JUST TRUST ME!
When the UPS man delivered my beautiful Kitchen-Aid Stand Mixer this evening, I had absolutely no choice but to
OPEN BEFORE CHRISTMAS!
Tractor Man wanted me to wrap it up and place it under the Christmas Tree but I put a STOP to THAT SILLY NOTION right off the bat!!!
(Psst...I picked out the mixer after seeing it on sale, told Tractor Man he was buying me a Kitchen Aid mixer for Christmas, and got the go ahead mumble from the recliner which means "as long as I don't have to go shopping it sounds like a perfect plan to me")
what Tractor Man doesn't quite understand is this now means he has to go shopping anyway because I'm NOT getting up Christmas morning with NO PRESENTS to open!
Like I told him tonight before he left to attend the local High School Basketball game, "You have to Up your game now Big Guy. You're on your own as you go seeking that perfect sentimental necklace or bracelet that will live up to Black Beauty."
Am I the ONLY person who
OPENS BEFORE CHRISTMAS ?
