So I have some sad news this week. My trusty Kitchen Aid Stand Mixer has bit the dust. It died yesterday while I was making the filling for a Lemon Cream Cake. Since the gear casing fell into the bowl and there were bits of metal shavings and lots of gear grease, we wisely threw the filling out. But since I don’t even have a hand mixer anymore, our cake just received some canned frosting.
This is the 2nd Kitchen Aid Mixer I have had crater on me in the past 15 years. And both of them it has seemed that it will cost more to fix than to just replace. SO–I am looking at switching brands for my mixer. I am going to be seriously looking at a Bosch Mixer this time. We should be getting our tax return money by the end of next week. So I am going to begin looking pretty seriously for a good deal on the Bosch that will grace my kitchen counter. I need a reliable workhorse and I think the Bosch will meet that need. If you know of any great deals on a new Bosch, let me know. I am gonna be looking.
Here is what we are having for dinner this week:
Monday-Deli Chicken, Jo-Jo Fries, Italian Olive Oil Bread
Tuesday– Broccoli Cheese Soup, Italian Olive Oil Bread
Wednesday– Fried Ham and Potatoes
Thursday– Meatloaf, Baked Potatoes, Green Beans
Saturday– Sloppy Joes, Homemade French Fries
Sunday–Super Bowl Munchdown–Party Sub Sandwich, Chicken Wings, Egg Rolls, Chips and Dip
