Mix Master Old School!


We like to call this one MIX MASTER, OLD SCHOOL.

When we were at the cottage, Matthew and I decided to make a cake. We were looking for the electric beaters, and happened upon this old mixer that belonged to my grandma. We stopped looking and decided to use the old manual mixer.

What fun he had mixing up the cake batter, and he did a great job as well. He had never seen an old mixer like this and just thought he had come across something pretty special.

And, you know he did! Life slowed down for a few minutes while we mixed up the cake, we were living in a simpler time when this mixer would of been thought of as being a luxury kitchen gadget.

By the way, yes, that is batter on his face.

Oh what fun. I fear my daughter would whine endlessly about such a task.

If he didn't have batter on his face, I'd say he was doing it wrong! :)

Hey there... finally getting my act together and back to blog hopping. Hope you're doing well. Looks like you had a good time at the cottage.

My grandma or Mom used to have that kind of mixer too. I even remember helping my grandma wash her laundry with her old ringer washer... am I THAT old? Geesh! lol
