The Family Mixer Gets Ready

I was reminded today of the family mixer. Yes, I call it the family mixer as it has been responsible for thousands of cookies over the years and we have ALL used it over and over again.

This tired-looking mixer revs its engine every year and bears the brunt of holding true to the traditional recipes as well as new recipes that we seem to think will be a part of the ‘make-again’ list. Some recipes will make it. Others are in it just for a one-season term.

As this Montgomery family icon witnesses holiday stress from the adults that want everything perfect to the children who really don’t care if the icing is perfect, it successfully competes it’s task.

While it’s been about 10 years now of declaring “next year is the year Roseddy gets a new mixer,” Old Yeller is ready for yet another season.

Let’s go.
