Those of you who own a KitchenAid stand mixer know where I come from. Those of you who don't... well, all I can say is that I'm sorry, and maybe you should be nicer in the future so Santa will bring you one of these instead of a lump of cold black coal.
So, what prompted me to want to blog about my KitchenAid? Well, I got it a new friend last week. Ever since I saw the KitchenAid 90th anniversary limited-edition 5-quart stand mixer in gorgeous candy apple red sitting on the William-Sonoma showroom floor, I've wanted the glass bowl that was accompanying it.
I'm not kidding when I say I heard angels sing. Say I'm not the only one.
I was crushed when the evil lady at William-Sonoma told me it only comes with the KitchenAid 90th anniversary limited-edition 5-quart stand mixer in gorgeous candy apple red. Crushed! So, I have patiently waited and waited and waited and when I saw one box, containing one 5-quart KitchenAid mixing bowl sitting on the floor by the KitchenAid display in Tri-State I swooped it up, not even caring that it wasn't on sale.
My mom told me I should wait until Christmas. I told her she was crazy and that I'd already have all my cooking done before Christmas so what's the point in that?
I've written a song for my wonderful cooking companion, sung to the tune of "Love Story" by Taylor Swift.
We were both young when I first saw you
I close my eyes
And the flashback starts
I'm standing there
In my apron pouring flour everywhere.
I see your beater
See it spinning madly
Whipping up the the batter, man it sure is handy
And I'm hands-free, little did I know
That you would change the way I bake cakes and peach pies
Frosting, mashed potatoes, how it makes me cry
And now my life is so much easier
I'll love to till the day I die, and I say
KitchenAid it's sure been a great ten years
Your whirling motor has been like music to my ears
You knead the bread dough, while I go to recess
It's a love story, baby let's make a mess
Remember your blessings!
