A Kitchen Aid Mixer, a Breville Blender, assorted kitchen gadgets that I would have no clue as to what they are used for, an apron from Anthropolgie (cute, but overpriced) a dessert cookbook.....just a few of the items on Jenna's Christmas list this year. This girl is putting Mom to shame. I've used the same hand mixer since 1983, my grandmother's cookbooks are somewhere. With dust on them. Grandmother's aprons are tucked away in a drawer, and a vintage blender sits on the counter....strictly for looks people! :) I've never been much of a baker, so she must have taken after my older sister. She chose a RED mixer, which would not have been my first choice. She turned her nose up at the suggestion of pink. So as I am making the purchases, I'm thinking to myself...It's a good thing. These gifts are practical, and won't be tossed into next summer's yard sale. So I said to my husband "Jenna will probably be taking half of the kitchen gadgets when she moves" and he let out a mighty chortle and replied with "what...when she's 32?" I have a suspicion he's right..and that's fine by me. :)
ps: She made cookies tonight which I will be posting about tomorrow...I just ate 2 and I think I gained 5 pounds.
