My Red Kitchenaid

If you read my blog with a little regularity, you'll know I just bought this lovely machine.  It is a marvel and I'm having so much fun.  It's like the Flintstones meet the Jetsons!

Being an old time "home ec-er, I have a few cronies left that also graduated in Home Economics.  You see there are precious few of us left since they don't have that major in college any more. (Now there are food chemists and social scientists).

One of my "home ec-er" type friends dug this out of who knows where and sent it to me. We both had a good chuckle over this!  Can you believe that is how they used to market these things? Straight from the '50's!

She also sent me this spoon rest.  She said it came from a friend of hers who was a test kitchen home economist.  Story goes.. she set this too close to the burner while she was developing a new recipe for General Mills.
The moral of the story is..."even professional Home Economists have melt downs".  Remember that, all of you newer cooks.
