Rewards for good (?) behaviour

For me the holy grail of Kitchenotopia has been the Kitchen Aid. Every time I've had a new novel come out I've promised myself I'll get one, but then, have baulked at the rather hefty price tag. Then this week, while sitting at home, full of a cold and feeling slightly sorry for myself I thought, I've got five novels out now - why the *%@# haven't I got that Kitchen Aid yet...

One hour later...



I am in loooooove, and why on earth didn't I do this after book number one?!!!!!

So far we have made five loaves of bread and a batch of bread rolls, plain meringues, chocolate and toasted coconut meringues and minced beef for homemade hamburgers. And we haven't even had it a week yet!

Of course, you'll be saying, why are you baking when you should be writing, Vanda? It's all a creative process, isn't it? This one is just a damn tasty one.

Let me leave you with the loaf of the day...

Vanda - I'm very happy that you rewarded yourself like that. You deserve it! And it looks as though it makes quite tasty food :-)

Just like you I've been wanting one, but then I think no - it's just too extravagant and who would eat all the goodies.

I need to stop thinking, be brave and buy one and heck the cost, instead of drooling every time I'm see one.

Hi Margot - We've been eating very well this week!

Liz, the only regret I have is not buying it sooner. Seriously, I feel like it's justified its presence on my kitchen bench already...go on, you know you want one...
