But today, things are back to normal. I got an intense craving for cucumber sandwiches with cream cheeze and I knew everything was going to be alright.
Further confirmation that life is returning to normal: My mixer is finally fixed! That's right- the cornerstone of my kitchen, the Tangerine Queen, has returned.
I see frosting in my future, and LOTS of it! I'm also really looking forward to the ease of kneading my bread dough with the mixer again. While I always end up enjoying kneading and realize that it doesn't take that long, it sure is nice to have a machine to do the work when I don't want to mess with it. Thank goodness there's a KitchenAid repair place nearby so I didn't have to ship that monster!
