Things I Can't Do Without in My Kitchen, Part 1
My Kitchenaid mixer. I bought this as a birthday present to myself when I turned 23, 34 years ago. At the time, I shared an apartment with a co-worker of mine. After I bought my Kitchenaid, I told Barbara she could use anything of mine that she wanted, except my mixer. One day, I was going out with my late-husband, then boyfriend, and after we left the apartment and got to the car, we got to talking and I remembered I had left something in the apartment that I had needed. Lo and behold, there was my roommate using my mixer. And yes, I was hot. She ended up moving out anyway, so it was just me and my Kitchenaid, which was fine by me. I can't believe I have had my mixer for 34 years. Whenever I have friends over for the first time, I point to the kitchen and say "this is where it all happens!" After I get these looks, I then point to my Kitchenaid. It's so old, it has a two prong cord. I won't give it up until it gives up on me. Until then, I maintain it like I would a fine, vintage car. And I'm sure most of you would agree, if you own a Kitchenaid, you would gladly sacrifice something else in order to keep it. I LOVE MY KITCHENAID!!!
