A Man in the Kitchen

Hubby, whom I have decided to refer to as “T” on this blog because I feel goofy always calling him “Hubby,” came up with a creative solution to a problem the other night. My parents were over, and Mom had made some shortcakes and sugared some strawberries, and all that was left to do was whip up some whipping cream. She didn’t know when she bought all the ingredients for strawberry shortcake that I had burned up the motor in my electric mixer a while back trying to mix a batch of peanut butter cookie dough. Mom and T took turns trying to whip the cream by hand with a whisk, but after several minutes of doing that with no apparent progress, T went and got his electric drill, inserted a whisk, and voila! Whipped cream in moments! (By the way, T bought me a new mixer, as well as three different kinds of dark chocolate, for Mother’s Day!)

  1. Yay for new mixers!!!I always thought the girl in Father of the Bride was insane for being upset at a blender for a wedding present. ;)Okay, maybe he should have gotten something more personal, *too*, but kitchen appliances make me happy. :DHappy Mother’s Day, Lissy!Love,Ashley

  2. Yeah, I am excited about my new mixer. It has regular beaters as well as dough hooks, so hopefully I won’t burn it out as fast as I did the last one! And it has a two-year warranty. :-)As far as something more personal goes, T is a wonderful poet…so T, if you are reading this, feel free to write me a poem any time. Love you!

  3. lol! yay for ingenuity! 🙂

  4. P.S. Oh! I meant the poor shlub in the movie should maybe have given something more personal–not your hubby. He gets a big thumbs up. I’m glad God gave you such a wonderful husband. 🙂

  5. That is so awesome! You are a blessed lady indeed!

  6. I love that idea – what a man!!!

  7. I LOVE his inventive idea….that is great!!!
