I love my mom. I love my mom more the older I get…She is really just the best when it comes to advice-according to my husband, all of our major purchases must be mom-approved first. Which is why we don’t have a dog…I plan to tap that advice even more so when the spring comes and I need help planting whatever kind of garden I can.
But right now I want to bring you back to Christmas. I knew what my big gift was from her because she had asked what color I wanted. But when I got down to her house on Christmas morning she told me she had another one for me. And she was (and is) proud of it.
A refrigerator dish matching the Friendship Pattern. She happily reported that she only paid 12 dollars for it! A good one, mama! The dish has no chips or fading at all and has already been put to use when frying up some drumsticks.
Now…My big gift. Its blue.
A Kitchen Aid! That matches my kitchen! I can’t begin to tell you how much I looooove this little lady. Of course its a lady, come on. When I took this picture it was in the process of turning heavy cream into butter-a common practice in the house now. However I have also used it to make: bread, cake, pizza dough, whipped cream (made by Joe), and more…Later I plan to make some more Fluff. It is one of Joe’s favorite things to have for lunch (sorry to southerns who have no idea what I am talking about) and we’ve run out. We are on a mission to make as much at home as possible and spend less at stores. Its amazing what we can do with just raw materials!
