Happy Easter

Kitchen Aid
Originally uploaded by KenCalvino
Well the Easter bunny arrived and look what he brought me! How did he know I needed a new mixer. I burned out the last one making my last batch of fruitcake over this last Christmas season. I like the Kitchen Aid because it has a switch that won't let it overheat - it will automatically shut off. This is their professional model - the 600 series - and has a good size, 6 quart bowl. With a large number of rebates, coupons, and finding it on sale - you won't believe this - I paid about one-third the retail price! I can't wait to start baking!

The weather here turned a bit colder over this weekend. Yesterday there were some threats of snow, but thankfully none materialized. I went out to the pharmacy to pick up a prescription and to swing by the post office. I didn't leave early enough to hit the bank, so I missed one of the first barbecues of the season. Oh well, there's another one next weekend......

Hope everyone has a Happy Easter - enjoy the chocolate. There was a special on the food channel last night that told how a lot of the Easter candy is made - really interesting. And the majority of people will eat the ears of the chocolate bunnies first. Hey, a good idea..... but I think I'd rather have some breakfast first. Today is going to be a pancake and sausage day. I haven't made them in a while.
