So, I have been saving some money  that was for pans for a long time.  I have been trying to decide if I should buy more pans, but really did not need any, so just saved it. A couple weeks ago, I started thinking about any thing I needed in the kitchen as I figured I could spend it on that. But nothing really stuck out to me right off, until I thought that maybe I should get a mixer. I have never had a stand type mixer to knead bread or anything, and never really wanted one, but lately I had been thinking with children that seem to be eating more, that it might be wise to have one. I started looking around and  you can buy a Kitchen Aid for around that price, but have heard they burn up with whole wheat bread dough etc. So………anyhow, with ending up getting  to spend our tax refund on a new house, we decided to take $200 of the tax rebate and that money we had saved and buy a Bosch mixer! I got it today, with the blender as my blender was an old one my dad found by a garbage can that works sometimes lately and so this  is so exciting! I just have to make sure I use it and you will have to give me lots of hints for it! I tend to avoid using things that take alot of cleanup, but I love my food processor, so I am sure I am going to like this! It fits perfectly on the counter too! So, maybe we can save some money on the amount of bread we have been going through! <p> I have been a bit discouraged as with moving, money seems to melt away and I am not used to spending all the money we have had to. Food prices have gone up alot too, so that makes it more difficult to keep costs down. <p> Off to start my soup, It is a cold day today, but it is supposed to warm up alot, to summer temps this week, so that is why the variable in the menu.

    I am still using my old mixer. I am looking forward to hearing how the Bosch works out for you.

    I think I found your blog through MOMYS.
