A good problem. A problem I can't solve yet but I'm happy to think about.
I told my husband that I really want to take Bebeng's Kitchen seriously, not that I'm just playing since I started it on July. As in, I was dreaming of its expansion for weeks already. You see, I can't bake a lot, can't try other breads and cakes aside from the regulars I made because I only own a few kitchen tools.
1) My table top oven's still in the appliance hospital so I borrowed my mom's. It's rusty and old. Surprisingly, it delivers but in a slightly different way. The muffins were a little denser and brownies were softer. It's okay but not the best. Ask those who know me well, I always want the best in everything I do. I then asked my fellow baking mommas on FB on what oven I should get — electric or gas, Elba or La Germania. Gas and La Germania won for the best practical reasons. So I'll be hugging my own La Germania real soon! I can't wait to share with y'all how my new kitchen buddy would look like. One thing's for sure, he's kinda big. He's German. Teehee.
2) I don't have a mixer. I do all the stirring, mixing, whisking manually. Hello, macho arms! Not. I super get tired just to get the right consistency of whatever I have to mix. Sometimes, I don't quite get it. So to further inspire me to become the next big thing in the food commerce (claiming it makes it true I believe), I am buying myself a KitchenAid Artisan stand mixer. Did I hear you mumble a "woot"? Or was it a "yay"? Hahaha! Isn't this a big deal in any domestic queen's life? This is the Rolls Royce of all mixers, right? Before anything else, I'd like to let you know that I'm getting the most affordable model, not that one that costs twice as much as my daughter's tuition. I'm still sane and sober. And financially-challenged.
But like what the title suggests, I have a problem.
I don't know what color I should choose! I'm sure about it, though, it must be pink. The moment I saw that they have pink, it was love at first sight. However, I suddenly had a change of heart when I saw the cranberry... oh wait, is that raspberry ice?! I'm soooooo torn, people. *I hear Natalie Imbruglia screaming in her baggy pants.* Now I know what those polygamous men feel. You see, the pink mixer's like my legal wife. The cranberry's too fun to be with! And the raspberry's so good in bed. Yes, my point of comparison should include that. Can't help it, I'm deprived. *kill me now for tmi*
Alright, do you now realize how hard of a decision this is for me? I need a little help from you, my virtual fellow desperate housewives. What should I get? Pink's my first love but I'm already 30. Cranberry's a little more like the color of my blog's header but it also kinda looks like Barney's color. Yes, the dinosaur that I don't like that much. Raspberry Ice's closest to the color of my ASUS laptop, my Samsung camera and my dead Nokia C3. I also have a satchel in a similar hue. Would that be redundant or cute? Gosh, can a 30-year-old still be cute?
We have 24 hours to solve this, ladies. I know I can count on you. xx
I'm aware that this might cause a universal debate in the whole blogosphere but please, no cyber slapfest.
