Every year before Christmas my girlfriends and I get together for a cookie party. We each make enough cookies to be able to give at least half a dozen to each girl. We drink wine, exchange Secret Santa presents, and do a lot of laughing. Then we get to go home with a beautiful tray of cookies made by our friends. Aren’t traditions great?!
This year I decided to get Andy a KitchenAid mixer for Christmas. He’s been making a lot of ice cream and really working on perfecting some recipes (with an ice cream shop in his future?!). But his mixer was full-on antique. It worked ok, but the motor didn’t sound good. At all. I spent hours agonizing over which one to get and in which color, and a week before Christmas it was delivered to our back porch… in a big cardboard box that said KITCHENAID MIXER… and Andy was the first one home. UGH!!
Well, it wasn’t all bad. I got to use the new mixer to make my cookie-party cookies!
