Of beds and bakeries

I will make these soon

For almost the last week I had all my updates written ahead of time, at least 2-3 days, and was able to just relax and watch them post.

Today I had no such post written and forgot about it.

In about 2 hours I'm driving up to Salt Lake City to look at a KitchenAid stand mixer I found on Craigslist for $85. I'm not entirely sure why--I'm not an experienced baker and my kitchen is already full of appliances of every shape and size--but I really want one. It seems like something I should just have. My sister uses hers for baking bread; they're useful for making cookies and frosting and cheesecakes and, with a grinder attachment (which this one includes), making hamburger and (to my Dad's honor) potato baloney.

I think part of the reason I want to get it is simply because it's such a good deal. $85 for something that, at Macy's, would run $350 at least. I've also had someone interseted in buying my twin mattress, which, if that sells for the asking price of $80, will mean I'll only be out a total of $5 for this mixer. While I understand it's not the best to look at things based on net values, but I've already worked out my finances for the next month, and the extra money I'd have from selling my bed is fluff, so it might as well be spent on something that can create equally fluffy pastries.

every good cook needs a mixer AND a food processor.
