Early Morning Three

Looks like Sergio is pretty comfortable with the current living situation. Soooo cute! He has a fuzzy face that I want to squish. Can you tell I’m totally loving this cat? I’m surprised that I’ve not yet had crazy allergy attacks. The allergy meds are sitting in a drawer in case they do attack on a moment’s notice though.

Surprisingly, I am still working on the Become An Early Riser in 5 Days challenge. This morning, I awoke at 6:40, but getting out of bed was a different question. Our super comfy mattress doesn’t help! Notice how I’m doing worse each day?

Since I had an appointment with the oral surgeon, I had to get up earlier than usual anyway. While I waited for about thirty minutes past my appointment time, the surgeon came in, saw me, and that was that. I’m still in recovery mode. Nothing exciting to report back, other than that I have to keep doing mouth-opening exercises. I have an appointment to check in with him in two months.

In other news, my sexy red mixer arrived! It is certainly as beautiful as I had hoped. But what shall I attempt to make first? Anyone who knows me knows that I’m not particularly skilled in the cooking department. Maybe I should stick with something that I already know, like a simple chocolate chip cookie recipe?


The possibilities are endless now that I am not mixing by hand with a spoon!

    Wow. You made me want to sleep now with this post.

    And NO LOVE FOR MANDY CAT?!

      Am I THAT boring, Keane? :P Mandy cat is much too loud and annoying for her own good. I think RV’s brother is going to end up with her.

    Such a cute cat pic.

    I’m definitely not a cat person, but that KitchenAid? *SCHWING!*

    Ok, the kitty’s very cute, too. :P

    Love kitties. :) So cute!

    How about make bread with your new sexy kitchen companion? That’s one of the things I love about having a stand mixer — look Ma, no hands! :-) Cinnamon rolls…mmm…

  • Jean

    I second the cinnamon rolls suggestion. One of those things that you need a dough hook to make well.

    Yum! How exciting! :)

    Hey thanks for stopping by my blog! That definitely is a GORGEOUS mixer! And great cat pic :) Good luck with your early morning challenge!

    The kitchenaid is GREAT for cookies so that’s as anything to start out with – then you can work your way up to cheesecake (which really isn’t too hard, to be honest). I dig that glass bowl and metallic finish.

    Suki,
    doesn’t owning that kitchenaid make you feel that if you wanted to you can be the baking GODDESS? That the world of making heavenly confections is now that much more accessible and possible?

    :) I’d feel like that. Until I botch my first recipe.

    haha. Congrats on your purchase, dear.

      Hahaha! Well, I’ll have to botch up a few recipes before I can become that baking goddess. ;)

    you bought the anniversary one that I wrote about in my blog!!! I got a sexy red one as well, but not with the cool class bowl. Nice…

    • http://superduperfantastic.com/ suki

      It was on sale at Overstock! I couldn’t let that deal pass, and now they’re out of them… You posted this on my birthday last year. It was obviously a sign to BUYYYYYY. ;) But in all seriousness, I had no idea and just read a TON of reviews before picking it out. :p

    You can also make dough for focaccia bread or pizza with that mixer. It’s pretty, I definitely want one now.

    • http://superduperfantastic.com/ suki

      Ooh, pizza and focaccia! Now THOSE are ideas. Of course, then I’d also need a pizza stone too… It’s endless!

      • http://thegermaphobe.net Ryan

        focaccia pizza is one of the best inventions ever.

    I’m going to flag Omid’s post and +1 Ryan’s

    MIXER. I AM SO JEALOUS. OMG. I would marry that thing.

    • http://superduperfantastic.com/ suki

      Lizz, you can come over Monday and play with it! :) Just bring ingredients. Heh.

    We can have a kitchenaid party! In case you ever need a replacement bowl and can’t wait for them online they have them at Sur La Table in the Ferry Building location.

    Everyone I know with the glass bowl (instead of metal) has broken it :(

    • http://www.squidopus.net neil

      I’m sure after 5 moves a glass bowl would have died, but it looks FREAKING AWESOME.

      • http://www.squidopus.net neil

        And I mean, if I had a glass bowl for my mixer.

        • http://superduperfantastic.com/ suki

          Yeah, I don’t plan on moving for awhile, Neil. Thank goodness! :)

    • http://superduperfantastic.com/ suki

      Thanks for the info! I really hope I don’t end up breaking it. It’s too pretttty.
