Exercises in the domestic arts

I recently acquired two new household items that may make me seem like I'm 27 going on 40 with 2.5 kids, a suburban pottery-barn inspired home, a giant SUV and a Martha Stewart obsession -- but I'm OK with that.

Item #1 -- not incredibly unusual, but I bought a crock pot. I'm terribly excited by the prospect of pot roast, 40-clove chicken and Cornish game hens in my future. Not to mention vats of chili cheese dip. My crock pot is red, and it's absolutely adorable. One day, when I get my Kitchen Aid mixer -- in red, of course -- my world will be complete.

Item #2 -- is something I've been secretly longing for -- a breadmaker. Thanks to my wonderful bf, who understands and appreciates my obsession with bread and soup, I got a deluxe-super-duper-does-everything-for-you-magnum-gorgeous breadmaker supreme! It will complement the vats of soup I make in my crock pot quite nicely. I'm looking forward to making everyone I know loaves of bread for Christmas... so brace yourselves.

See, I'm so domestic, it's great.... minus the fact that my house is a dirty mess and I really am not that motivated to fix the situation....

Now I must order kitchen curtains -- primarily to make sure the world doesn't see my mess!

I totally don't cook, but I'll admit that there's something really compelling about those brightly colored Kitchen-Aid mixers. I've been coveting one for years... and I have not the slightest idea what I'd do with it.

Kitchen Aid mixers rock! Of course, mine is just your basic white model because that was the only model on sale after Thanksgiving, but it still totally rocks.

Congrats you old lady!

I suck at cooking but love my kitchen aid mixer....

Are there really 40 cloves in 40 clove chicken?

I had no idea you were one of us, the obssesed with all things red KitchenAid people! Ross bought me the red mixer for Christmas a couple years ago (LOVE it), and now we have everything...coffee bean grinder, ice cream scooper, you name it, all in red. He drew his line in the sand at the red crock pot, however, so I envy yours!
