LOL, Briar. Yes, a Kitchenaid. I got a Pro series this time. Old one was "artisan." I think I did too many double recipes that were overflowing. I've used/abused it a great deal over about 14 years. Perhaps I could get it repaired, but the cost of service would be 50% of the cost of a new one. There is a $50 rebate right now, on top of some cyber deals.

Funny, I do not use my cuisinart much at all. I find it annoying to clean.

Yes, funny how these days to get anything serviced ends up costing more than just getting a new one. Throw it away, get a new one. We've got the kitchen aid mixmaster one too. It's probably about 12 years old now, but still performs. We dont use the processors much either or this vitamix she bought last year due to the cleaning. Plus let's face it. If you gotta pull it outta the cabinet stored ALL the way in back it becomes too much of a hassle.

Have a great day everyone.

Same here, phoebe; my Cuisinart sits pretty much unused. For the most part, a knife and cutting board are much easier to clean.

Random thought born of this conversation: The puppy is terrified of the mixer. He cowers and seeks the comfort of another family member. Looks for protection from the beast!

I do use my Vitamix, more than the food processor, for sure. My son loves yogurt smoothies and I go on kicks with smoothies. I do not do as many things with it as I thought I would though. And it is a big ticket item. And, I can honestly say it has not seen an alcoholic cocktail!

Busy day, lazy night.

Briar, I love the furniture!!! It's all just precious. And you can't go wrong with pb, graham crackers, and chocolate. Such good stuff!

I feel an early bedtime coming on. Goodnight all

Venus, I love those! Super cute!!!

And good morning everyone! I slept like a rock from 9-6. I guess my bride brain needed a break. It's crazy how hard it is to focus lately. My mind is all over the place.
Make it an awesome Tuesday! (Wait...It is Tuesday, right? Just double- checking. Lol)

And I love the Alice quote, Dee. Excellent reminder!

V, I love those Converse shoes!! I think they are so cool, but they don't have enough support for my feet. Otherwise I could see amassing a collection, lol. I have a friend who got some custom ones. Now I forget what was on them, but she posted them on FB. I will have to go look and see if I can find them.

Puppy class today. Was a bit of a fiasco due to smoke alarms being tested in the building. Really, during puppy training classes? Ugh, maybe they could have rescheduled one or the other?

Best wishes Conquest! Not too many more days. I cannot wait to hear about it!
