New toy!

15 10 2007

I had heaps of loyalty points and got a catalogue of what I could buy with those points a few weeks ago. Normally, these catalogues just go straight in the bin as I usually convert my accumulated points to Frequent Flyer miles about once a year. But I’ve got nearly half a million Frequent Flyer points, so I decided to see if the catalogue had anything that was a ‘nice-to-have-but-I’m-not-going-to-spend-my-money-on-it’ item.

Sure enough, there was! A KitchenAid mixer!! The big mother of all mixers. Until now I’ve been making do with a hand-held electric beater which sparks every time I turn it on. It’s not that I use a mixer very often, but those little beaters have sure had their day. And now maybe with a decent mixer, I’ll make blueberry muffins and the like more often.

Last week my lovely new KitchenAid (as used by Martha Stewart and many many others) arrived. I could’ve chosen one in a really bright colour, but went for boring old cream/vanilla as it will match any future kitchen I have. See my Amazon store for details – including ALL the colours! If you’re in the US, you can purchase it from my Amazon store; if you’re not in the US, you’ll have to source one from your local kitchen store.
