Can’t wait!!! Very excited!! Bloody hell……..I finally found a mixer that I liked . You know the big old ones by KENWOOD, that most of our Granny’s had and our Great granny too?? Now I have to digress for a moment. I must be one of the few women whose husband could buy me any kitchen gadgety thing and I would love it!! Have I ever received one? NOPE!! Anyways, back to the matter at hand…………..KENWOOD MIXERS!!
Now days they look like this:
Simply stunning but I wanted an older one as I have to say, I like the red BUT hate stainless steel as it is a bitch to clean. My stainless steel toaster and jug will be getting the boot as soon as possible but they don;t seem to want to give up the ghost!!
My baby looks like this: In fact this is her photo!! SIGH ……….
My baby!! Look at her!! Isn;t she wonderful??
She (and it is a she, I think the odd mixer is a He, but this is definitely a she, I can feel it in my bones:) is just a wee beauty and you know, I know, I will have her all my life. She is in the world of Kenwood’s, a newer model, a 1987…………3 speeds and look at the attachments!! Especially the dough hook!! I have on my trade me (NZ E Bay) watch list a mincer, juicer and sausage maker attachment!! Heaven…………
I am going to call her Greedygirl.
Greedygirl will even keep my son happy with a blender on it. He was not happy when I sold my food processor/ blender as I was not using it. He said he was using the blender for milkshakes, so this will keep him smiling 🙂
Speaking of Kenwood mixers, while I was looking for some info on them, I found a very interesting yahoo group called ‘We actually collect Kenwood mixers” err i think………..Very interesting and quite hardcore .
So that’s all I wanted to share tonight. VERY VERY EXCITING INDEED!!
Don’t forget the special NZ bread will be hot out of the oven tomorrow and the 2nd go at the Altamura bread.
My apricot brioche and 2 plain brioche are GONE!! Baked at 11am today.More on that tomorrow.
Talk about greedy guts!!
