Ode to My Mixer

From time to time on this blog, I will highlight a gadget that I find useful in my kitchen. Although this gadget is probably more appropriately called an appliance, I had to make it the first in this category. It is after all my favorite. It is a 6qt KitchenAid stand mixer. Now I will be the first to admit that it is a pricey item. It will probably be the most expensive gadget I talk about here. I compiled birthday cash from two sources to purchase mine. It has been so worth it. I use my mixer almost every day. I don't think I could make fondant without it. Here is a little tribute to my favorite kitchen gadget.

          Ode to My Mixer
            by A. Poet

          I love my mixer,
          It’s like an elixir.
          I just love to use it,
          But I never abuse it.
          What a large mixer I have!

          I bought it refurbished,
          Its surface was burnished.
          And although it was used,
          I was completely enthused.
          What a large mixer I have!

          My KitchenAid mixer,
          Makes my frosting much thicker.
          Yet smooth just like butter,
          Fresh from the cow’s udder.
          What a large mixer I have!

          My mixer is loud,
          Shockingly loud.
          The sound can be deafening,
          But the results are so heavenly.
          What a large mixer I have!

          My husband sure hates it,
          The sounds it emits.
          It makes him feel grouchy,
          As he sits on the couchy.
          What a large mixer I have!

          My mixer is big,
          Weighing more than a pig.
          So hard to pick up,
          It will mix 24 cups.
          What a large mixer I have!

          I never would trade,
          This large KitchenAid.
          Though earplugs I need,
          And my husband does plead.
          What a large mixer I have!

          I wrote this small poem,
          Without xylem or phloem,
          To express my own love,
          For my mixer, my dove.
          What a large mixer I have!

This is the mixer that I have and love so much.
