How can a girl be so stinkin’ happy…

…about a mixer?

Potato Masher For someone who has been using the old fashion hand masher and whisk for the last five or six years, it was a huge surprise to open the heavy over-sized box and find my brand spankin’ new KitchenAid Mixer.

I immediately started thinking about what I was going to make that would “require” me to break out the new gift toy kitchen helper (toy).  Needless to say my train of thought on this topic did not last long as my attention quickly returned to the festivities of the day, watching family open their gifts and enjoying everyone’s company.

When the presents were opened and everyone was enjoying their gifts and visiting others, I retreated to the kitchen to prepare our Christmas meal.  About an hour into the preparations I reached into the utensil drawer and pulled out the tater masher…THEN IT HIT ME!  I can use my new mixer to mash the sweet potatoes and mix the squash casserole ingredients, so I quickly called to my son for assistance. After enduring a few minutes of excited anticipation, there she was sitting tall on the counter, shining in all her glory and waiting to assist in preparing our Christmas meal.

Maybe it was me, maybe it was because of the mixer, but on that Christmas day I felt the food tasted a little extra delicious.

Thanks dad for the great Christmas gift. I love it and look forward to preparing many tasty dishes with it.
