Kitchen Organization Pt. I

Sign in to follow this  


I'm trying to decide which kitchen appliances should go and which should stay- this month I'm evaluating the Kitchenaid. I used it a lot right after I got it (almost 10 years ago now) but not much for years now. It's easier than I remembered, maybe just from more practice in the kitchen in general.  So, pizza dough.


I've... I've ordered worse? That's not really a high bar, though- most of the veg pizza in town is a solid "meh".

I call my KitchenAid mixer my "kitchen tractor" since I can add on other implements.  It lives in precious counter space and I use it at least once a week.

Pizzas look great!  When we have the FJCon you are on pizza duty :)

I use my standing mixer at least 5x a month. I love making homemade whipped cream with it, as well as various doughs. But they do take up a lot of counter space, so it's definitely worth evaluating.

I used to make bread/pasta/muffins/cookies/etc all the time but I stopped when my husband was diagnosed with type II diabetes. It's been nice to re-evaluate- I got a spiralizer-plus as a holiday gift, and I have some other attachments, but I always felt like its main use was carbs, and I don't feel that way now. It's just useful.

Have you tried cooking your pizza on a pizza stone instead of on the baking sheets? I've also had good luck with a cast iron pan.

      Any info on what went down with Aimee's first husband? If his "writing" is any indication, he seems like a real trip https://www.amazon.com/Only-Way-Robert-Moore-II/dp/0982211953

      No, except they seem to have divorced within a couple years of marrying.

      For baby showers (which I no longer have to worry about), I always gave the same gift...diapers and wipes. For "new baby" gifts I usually give a "pamper mom" basket. Everybody buys a shit ton of stuff for the baby and sorta leaves mom out of it. 

      The next wedding I'll have to buy something for is my daughter's...probably just a gift card worth some decent coin. They close on their new house in 26 days and the wedding will be sometime later this year. Something about the house and her last semester of school...I just need to mention...this was the child who ended up in prison for doing some really stupid illegal shit. She's clean and sober and has been for quite a while, has 3 associates degrees, is finishing a bachelor's in Computer Science and is debating grad school...I'm just a wee bit proud of her. 

      I don't know her and I'm more than a wee bit proud too, what an amazing achievement!

      I'm the eldest child and I've sort of adopted the maternal role since my mum died. One of the youngest had mental health issues, disappeared for a while, was emotionally abusive for a long time. She has turned everything around, she has a job, she's married, she's pregnant, she has her own home and she worked through her demons. I am more proud of her than anything I've ever achieved myself.

      ZZ Anderson is not a fan of Lori's (from ZZ's public facebook):


      Carolyn Paul Weber   What are your thoughts on Lori Alexander who has a Facebook page and blog under the name " The Transformed Wife"? She is a big advocate of the Pearls.

      Are They All Yours? I'm not interested in anything she has to say, nor do I read her blog. She believes in sinless perfection. She has entire blog posts dedicated to Pearl's Roman series detailing why she agrees with it.

      Although the salad photo seemed weird to me, I have to cut her some slack. People do strange things when their loved ones are dying. Lori sounds like she gets pleasure from making a salad for her mom. I"m sure it provides some comfort for her to do so. Without question, though, Lori has an abnormal, bizarre relationship with food.

      Lori's post just feels so...I don't know...mocking, cruel, ugly.  She thinks it's all a beautiful journey because she is a "christian."  My in-laws were/are faithful conservative Christians.  In fact, my father-in-law is always telling his doctors "I'm scheduled to preach Sunday; I gotta go home," and it was true. He was always preaching or teaching a Bible class.  

      Christians get to be sad.  Christians get to grieve and be overhelmed.  Christians get to miss their loved ones regardless of their certainty of salvation.  

      This. I wonder how many of her fans are feeling inadequate after reading that.  I don't want to judge Lori because I don't know her personally, but I do want anyone reading this who feels inadequate to know that you aren't faulty and less of a Christian.  

      I wasn't there to say goodbye to any of my grandparents but I treasure my last memories with them. Both of my grandmothers liked food and showed their love with food.  My maternal grandmother passed 9 years ago and my parents cared for her that last year.  Both my mom and dad didn't get to say goodbye to their fathers because they passed before they could hop on a plane and fly out to where they lived.  Both had a much harder time with that loss than with the loss of their mothers for that reason. My mother was there, holding her hand, when her mother passed.  My maternal grandmother loved chocolate ice cream and requested it every day until she died, and why not? She should enjoy her life until the very end!!!   My grandmother wrote wonderful letters that I still treasure. I received her last one, with a birthday card for my 19th birthday, a few days after she died.   I had been looking forward to seeing her in December that year but she died in August.  I'm glad my mother, her baby, got to be there to say goodbye.

      I think Hannie looks like Joy, who looks like Jana... and apparently Jed. First time I've seen that resemblance!
