While I was having a conversation on the phone recently my mom mentioned that she wanted to send me an early combined birthday and Christmas gift. Lately she’s always doing something like this so she can get me something that I could use immediately or in this case, make something and send her a sampling.
This morning, only 2 days after that conversation I received the gift by way of UPS. It arrived so early that everyone in the house was still asleep and pouring rain. We had to go outside and look around because we didn’t get to see who banged on the door and the truck was already gone.
My roommate, Angie, found the box safely under the carport safely hidden from street view by Danny’s car. I brought this HEAVY box from Amazon into the house and to my surprise it was a brand-new KitchenAid Professional 600 Series 6-Quart Stand Mixer in Empire Red. It has a powerful 575 watt motor and a mixing bowl so large I can make a single batch of dough to make enough pierogi to feed the family from Christmas all the way to Easter with plenty in between.
