Fun with my KitchenAid

I should be posting this on my cooking blog but it's mostly bragging about how much I love my KitchenAid stand mixer.

My mom found this Mixer Attachment pack at a garage sale then never used it. I sent her my I want it vibes and when she was packing up to move she gave it to me. It was pretty dirty and had mouse droppings in it from being stored so long. I brought it home and put it in the garage so that I could get around to it later. I didn't want to bring it in until I was ready to clean it up. DH mistook it for something that needed to go to the attic. My electric cheese grater broke a couple months ago and I am so sick of grating cheese by hand. Tonight I asked DH to go find the box that had the attachments in it.

I got it out and cleaned it up. It's only missing that little brown thing called the stomper that pushes the food down into the mill. And if I get the plates (around $30) I could make pasta with it. My mom used to make homemade pasta when we were kids and I loved it.

The whole pack is worth $130 on Amazon. It's just too bad I didn't have it when my babies needed everything mashed. It would have been handy for that. I guess I'll use it for my grandbabies someday.

Thanks so much for the compliment. That was very sweet. My blog can be a bit of a bore, but oh well. Everybody seems to have a kitchen aid mixer, except me - pout. What a nice mom to listen to your "vibes." As for the exercise you need to get a private calendar and weigh yourself everyday, every morning for one month. Then record it on that calendar. Preferably, you should have an electronic scale. My dear, sweet, sweet husband got me one of these a month before I had our third daughter - for Christmas. I was complaining about my weight - totally in tune :) Anyways, you also need to exercise everyday, except Sunday for one hour each day, for one month. This means VIGOROUS exercise. Be sure and put a sticker on the calendar everyday. Then reward yourself at the end with something - for me it's CRAFTS. Plus, I think you look really hot in those leopard print stir-up stretchy pants. If you've got it flaunt it!
