    Mine too. It'll be National Stopped Up Sink Day, as the plumbers say, lol. Major holiday, that'll be triple time. That still leaves a lot of room for discounts to the poor widow ladies...

    Wow. Everyone should have a rockin' chair like that one. Mine's real similar.

    I'm just excited to eat something else other than top ramen and pot pies.

    It's a process to get it to set up quickly so that the Coco butter or sugar doesn't separate out and give it a Dusty or crumbly texture or appearance.
    You have to reintroduce crystalized chocolate into the melted chocolate at a specific temperature. Rather difficult and timing is crucial.

    I had to purchase a new KitchenAid mixer. My old one died. It's ordered and on it's way. Bread, cookies are in the future again.

    The old one died from use and abuse. (30yrs old)
    The newer ones are electronic and refuse to be overworked when I need them to be...

    So I had to get the truly professional one with the 1.3 horsepower DC motor and 8qt bowl. (Red cord). Not the 600 Watt 6/qt...it had the electronics. My new one has over twice the watts of that one and makes a fraction of the noise.

    So it should arrive Wednesday and by the end of Friday it will have had it's first workout. I plan on several different batches of cookie doughs and gingerbreads... maybe even yeast breads.

    There is no rest for the wicked and my mixer is just as wicked as I.

    New mixer is getting a work out...

    Cakes, frosting, bread, cookie doughs, and chocolate candy fillings....it keeps on rocking well.
    Even the batches I used to mix by hand.

    What has perturbed me to no end was that while looking up for a repair shop for my old mixer I seen a YouTube video.
    It showed me a fix for my old one.
    Sure enough, in less than 2 minutes I had my old 250 watt working like a champ once again. That was annoying.
    But I ain't sending the new back. I'm liking it way too much to do that.
