I would like you to meet my new green bowl. This is it. The one I ordered from Chefs.com.
This is Big Brown Bowl. I've been using it since Big Green Bowl bit the dust. I like it and I may just keep using it and let New Green Bowl sit in display on the shelf.
These are the tough decisions in life, folks.
And there's one more thing. I don't know what kind of kitchen karma I've got going on, but today, while mixing the batter for a lovely Sherry Cake, (recipe soon to come) my 25 year old Black and Decker hand mixer took its last breath. Yes, right in mid-beat, it just sputtered and died. The accompanying burnt motor smell told me there was no hope it would come back to life.
No, I will not replace it with a state-of-the-art Cuisinart mixing bowl/stand thing! I am an old-fashioned girl who likes basic kitchen tools. I like to use my hands and some elbow grease when I'm cooking. It feels more like I'm really putting a piece of myself into everything I bake. Call me corny but that is just the way it is.
So....I guess I'll be making a trip to Target soon for a new Black and Decker. My guess is the new one won't last me another 25 years. They don't make 'em like they used to.
