Last night I acquired a new kitchen toy.
This was GIVEN to me by my friend Anne.
I'll say that again:
She. GAVE. Me. A. KitchenAid. Mixer.
This was her mom's mixer, passed along to Anne many years ago, but since Anne is in mega clean-out-her-house mode and getting rid of all the things she never uses, she passed it along to me.
I've drooled over KitchenAid stand mixers for many many years, but could never bring myself to spend the money. I can't believe I have one in my kitchen. It's old, it's solid, and it weighs a ton. Plus, it came with TWO bowls, a splatter shield, and the wire whip, dough hook, and flat paddle attachments! And a cover, not shown.
Anne, you rock.
Now I want to...
...however, I may wait until it's not 98 degrees out before I turn on the oven.
