It has arrived! I asked for this KitchenAid mixer for my birthday back in late April. The mixer had been on sale at Costco, and so we ordered it online. It took a while before it was delivered, as apparently it was a popular item.
Now, I don’t usually ask for household items for gifts. But, maybe it’s all the time at home lately or maybe the red appealed to me, but I decided it could be a fun and helpful addition to our home.
However, to be honest, I am a bit overwhelmed. So, before I do anything, I plan to read the manuals because just looking at the different pieces, I do not have any idea what they are used for!
While I am intimidated, I assure you it will be used. I am too careful with money to purchase something that would go unused. Probably, the first thing I will make are chocolate chip cookies. After that, it will be a learning experience. I’ve joined 2 Facebook KitchenAid groups where there is a ton of love for these mixers and even more tons of recipes. Some people even name their mixers.
While I love the sweets, it’s all about balance, so I’ll be looking for other options to make as well. Maybe I will make some delicious dinner rolls or homemade pretzels for a tasty snack. I also saw a recipe for zoodles (from zucchini) which sounds wonderful to me; however, I believe I’ll need to purchase some attachment for this. I think it’s called a spiralizer, and the word on the street is it is able to peel, core and slice, too. I’m wondering what might it do at night when we are sleeping.
And yes, dear readers, I will report back once I give my new mixer a whirl. I am excited as I see this as a whole new way to be creative – as well as to eat and share some tasty food. I am, of course, happy to read any of your comments or suggestions. Maybe some of you will even share your favorite recipes.
That’s it for now. I’ve got some pamphlets waiting for me. Thanks for reading, and stay safe!
