He's Finally Moved In!

Thank goodness, he's finally moved in with me. I never thought it would happen, that I would someday be so fulfilled by his presence. I'm so thrilled he chose me. Of all the women in the world he could have had, he wanted to spend the rest of his life with me. I can hardly contain myself thinking of the good times we'll have together.

He's your basic "tall, dark and handsome". No, not that basic. He's tall but still easy to embrace. He's dark, a glistening onyx black hunk of darkness. And he's (oh, be still my beating heart) handsome. A powerful, ravaging kind of handsome. A handsome that will take your breath away and leave you, well, panting for more.

OH..........MY.............GOD. Please meet my new Kitchen Aid mixer!

Whew. Before I go further I need to address my dear, gasping readers. Hubby and I just celebrated our 36th anniversary yesterday (yeah on 09/09/09) and are happily married. But, don't you think having that gorgeous beast in my kitchen might make the next 36 years a bit more easy? You bet!

For three-and-a-half decades I've used my Oster Kitchen Center. It's so ugly I decided this last decade I wasn't going to clean it anymore. It's Harvest Gold, need I say more?

It was high time and I deserved something new, more modern. So I shopped. I spent hours on the Internet, days in the stores ---agonizing on a model, the power of the mixer, it's features and finally, the blasted color of the beast. I needed something to knead my bread (I make bread?), mix my cookie dough and whip my egg whites...with style and fervor and did I mention, POWER?

This baby has 575 watts of power for making my life easier. When it isn't mixing for me I can use it around the place to do mechanized farming. In New Mexico I'll live 72 miles from the closest grocery store and I'll occasionally be expected to feed hubby and myself --- something. So I'll summon my stallion of a mixer, fill his stainless steel bowl with a glut of ingredients and bring forth a world of culinary delights. Or, uh, somethin' like that.

I started out slowly this weekend with a recipe for Banana Bread. I found a terrific recipe on my favorite food site. Simple Sour Cream Banana Bread at "Tasty Kitchen". I'm trying to pace myself so as not to get too good at this cooking thing before my time. Almost before the bread was out of the oven, I buttered it and ate it --- both loaves, at 375 degrees. I exaggerate sometimes, but this time I'm really, really telling the truth. Well, most of it anyway.

I was lucky to get a picture of the last remaining slice, just before it was devoured by hubby.

Shhh...Hubby doesn't know how I feel about my Kitchen Aid mixer. Can we keep that our little secret?

Your secret is safe with me. But imagine if your Kitchen Aid and my Bunn got together...oh the beautiful babies they would have!

36 years? Now that's impressive. I know the next 36 will be even better...'cause you'll be in New Mexico!

HA ... it took me over 40 years to get my Kitchen Aid and I could kick myself for not getting one sooner! A magnificent machine that helps me tackle anything with ease. You'll never regret getting this hunk of a machine!

Your black stallion makes me (almost) want to bake something. What a great toy -- errr -- appliance.

Happy anniversary. Will we see you for the puppy party November 21?

I was almost jealous!

That was very entertaining! Congrats on 36 years! I LOVE hearing about couples that aren't divorced! I'm proud of you two for making it to 36 years! :-)

I love pretty kitchen appliances! I have one of these babies too and he is my friend.

Enjoy it!
