The Mixer of all Mixers 2 (by Mom of Two)
The Mixer of all Mixers 2, originally uploaded by Mom of Two.

In keeping with the food theme for July (I’ve made it to day 2!  Woohoo!) I would like to share my mixer lust – I really, really, really want a KitchenAid Stand Mixer.  (Really?)

Do I need it?  No.  Of course not!  Do I lust after it and surreptitiously try to smuggle them out of friends’ houses while they’re not looking?  Yes!  I mean, of course not.  *ahem* 

Let me tell you what I would use this mixer for – making bread.  I know what you’re thinking.  I make bread already, so why would I need a 20+ pound behemoth hulking on the counter in my already-too-small galley kitchen?  Especially considering I actually enjoy kneading the dough!  I’ll tell you why – it’s the stirring I can’t stand.  Every time I think about making bread, I think about the stirring and how tired my arm gets and then I reconsider.  (And usually reconsider again and end up making it anyway, cursing the stirring process the whole time.)  And there are some breads that I just flat out won’t make anymore – like anadama , which I love, but which requires a small army to properly mix.  The only problem is that the mixers cost about as much as I spend on groceries in a given month.  So, I could buy the mixer and then mix a whole lot of…nothing.

Christmas is coming soon, right?  Right?
