From My Mama

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.

Now…My big gift. Its blue.

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!

    Your mixer is lovely!! I had begun to wonder what it looked like and what you are making with it. Congratulations on all your cooking.
