Bragging on My Family

Sorry things have been a little slow around here.  Since the day after Christmas I have had a horrible cold.  It knocked me out & I've only left the house once in eight days.  But I'm feeling a little better & think I'm on the up swing.  On top of that a portion of our basement flooded & we had a sewer gas problem in one of our bathrooms.  It has been a busy week for my husband, especially since all I really could do was lay in bed.  He was a trooper though & took care of all the kids, ran to the store (& even got everything on the list & for the best price), did dishes, & took care of our mild disasters.  Things are getting fixed, including my sinuses, and I'll start posting more regularly again this week.
I wanted to brag on my hubby & Mom for a minute.  They got me the best Christmas present ever this year, a KitchenAid mixer!  I've been wanting one of these since the day I got married nine years ago.  I just figured it wouldn't happen for a few more years.  But everyone chipped in & surprised me.  I've only used it twice, since I was sick cooking & baking have been on the back burner.  I can't wait to really mix some stuff up!  I think my poor little hand beaters are relieved that they don't have to mix up my banana bread recipe anymore.  I have the best hubby & family in the world, I really do.
Hope y'all had a good New Years, I'll be back soon with some more recipes & ideas.
