Santa brought a mixer!!! (a little early...)

SANTA BROUGHT A KITCHEN AID MIXER!!!!!!!!!!! I have been wanting one of these for a VERY long time!!!
My beautiful wonderful wife let me in on a Black Friday sale that was going on and told me that this was probably a gift she was going to give me anyway and we might as well save a ton of money at the same time. (I also have my suspicions about her motives - two days later I was given a 'wish list' - hmmm)

What she didn't tell me was what time I was going to have to wake up:

So, as you can see the line behind me is long, what you don't see is that the door is about 40 feet to the left and the line doesn't end until about 20 feet to the right. It got even longer before the door opened. Did I mention it was raining?

As my wife will tell you her baking man earned his Christmas this year and the whole family is now enjoying wonderful foods at a faster rate :)

Keep an eye out on my Gingerbread expose' to see action clips of my new mixer hard at work!

You seriously went to Kohls at 3 in the mornign?

Kohls at 3:00 in the morning? You laugh? I have the pictures and the Kitchen Aid to prove it ;) Too bad about that elderly lady I had to throw an elbow on; she was moving kind of slow...

Hooray for Kitchen Aids!
Hope you enjoy that peppermint spiral recipe - my foodblog, sadly, is sorely neglected - and I appear to have dropped into a dreadful cooking rut - I need to work on that. Perhaps a resolution for the New Year!

Happy Holidays to you and your wife!

You'll love that mixer ...

got mine a few Christmases ago...I use it A LOT!

Some people think this type of gift is all wrong....obviously they don't bake! My husband knew exactly what I wanted because I pointed to it several times when we were in Canadian Tire (which sells everything!) looking for other "stuff" , like ... tools. One of my best gifts ever!

Lewis, I have been meaning to comment on this. I absolutely LOVE that you went to Kohl's @ 3AM to get your mixer.

You, my fellow bread-head rock!!!
