It’s Thursday, and it’s Joanne’s Birthday!

If we had planned this better, we could have made a huge decadent birthday cake to celebrate my birthday, but sadly, we did not.  Instead, we took some time to relax, have a fantastic BBQ with family where we made what could have been the best burger ever (to be posted shortly) and play with our loving cat, Marmalade, because let’s face it, she is family too.

I have also been spending all of my time dreaming of the moment when UPS drops off my absolutely fantastic birthday present purchased by the best husband ever, yes, Adam (if it was not Adam, that would have been quite awkward).  He bought me something I have dreamed about since high school, almost bought on numerous occasions, but always backed out and that seriously makes me drool whenever I see one at a store, on TV and worse, in someone’s kitchen (makes for quite the embarrassing moment … it’s not good when you envy your friends for having something you want … but, I do … only with this particular thing though … I feel badly about it … but it’s true … so so true).  Anyway, here it is .. I would take our own photo, but it isn’t here yet, it should be later today (oh, please Mr. UPS Man, please deliver it today).

He Got me a KitchenAid Stand Mixer!!

Isn’t my husband wonderful?  Now, I have to devise my plans for what to make … I am thinking Angel Food Cake first, maybe with chocolate chips??  Or cookies, I love cookies, pizza dough would be fun… so many possibilities!

Leave a comment with a suggestion, becasue the moment that baby gets delivered, the mixing begins … I hope our neighbors don’t mind the sound of whipping egg whites at 1am in the morning…

    Happy Birthday, Joanne!!! That Ice color will go in your apple green kitchen nicely. (Add Chinese Red potholders!) You might try Lemon Meringue Cookies? Or make a 3-day stash of whipped cream for your hot cocoas at night? Or, use the dough hook and make bread?Or, do a Jello “phoof”? Or whip together a flavored butter spread…Hee haw!’Think I’ll get to work on that last one…. A toast to you, hoping your day is really special.

    Happy Birthday- I so knew it would be a cuisinart-only a food person would get so excited-gorgeous color-I have always wanted one I just do not have the space. I know lame excuse.

    Awesome! Happy happy birthday, Joanne! I got one of those mixers by hoarding a ton of gift cards from wedding related gifts and using those awesome B^3 coupons.

    I think you should make a meringue. That is pretty much the sole reason I wanted one is that making a meringue without a stand mixer is RIDICULOUS! I use it for just about everything I can. Have fun!

      Thanks Beverly! Last night, I just sat in front of the mixer and watched it go round and round! It was awesome!

    How did I know as I read that post that it was going to be that mixer as I scrolled down???

    I’m glad you got exactly what you wanted ! 🙂

    PS… Angel Food cake sounds awesome

      Ryan … hmm, maybe all those not-so-discrete hints?

  • Wendi June 24, 2010, 10:39 am

    Joanne, enjoy your day and the new mixer.

  • Heather June 24, 2010, 9:53 am

    oh yay! i loveeeeee that color!

    • inspiredtaste June 24, 2010, 9:55 am

      isn’t it wonderful … the name is Ice … I liked Green Apple a lot too, but our kitchen walls are green apple and I want this baby to stand out 🙂

      I must admit, the color choice was tough … it felt like a major life decision .. I hope I made the right choice!

    Happy Birthday. And what an awesome present. I got one for my birthday a few years ago and she has changed my life forever. (Mine is pink, so she’s a girl). Enjoy.

      Thanks Eliana!!! I liked pink as well… but, I didn’t think that would go over too well with Adam 🙂
