I have a question. My husband loves me very well and usually his gifts are just incredibly thoughtful. Recently I had a birthday though and the gift he bought me has raised a tiny disagreement between us and I’d like to know what you think. He bought me a stand-mixer. This much is indisputable: It’s got a lot of power under the hood. With a heavy-duty crank, the large stainless steel bowl lifts to meet the beaters. It can make enough whole-grain bread dough to feed the multitudes. With attachments it could make pasta and probably even sausages (if I ate sausages.) It’s even got the word “professional” emblazoned on the front!
It’s powerful and great engineering and all…but what I want to know is: would that speak romance to you?
. . . . .
How about if it were RED?
Like the color of fire engines? – no…
Like Scarlet O’Hara roses, and Marilyn Monroe’s lipstick! And a little cherry-red MG convertible rolling down a country road with the top down and your hair blowing free and a smile lighting your whole face! YES! This mixer speaks romance to me too! It even sings it! He doubted it, but I knew you wouldn’t!
(Still, you can vote if you like.)
The weather promises a little sun and warmth for us this weekend so we’ll be cooking from the grill! Have you ever eaten pizzas cooked on your barbecue? OH! You might just want to! So later today I’ll be sharing a recipe for pizza dough. I like to let it go through a very slow rising process in the fridge, so we’ll be enjoying these little savory pies tomorrow or the next day. But let’s get that dough started! (Getting out my sexy red mixer!)
