Penny Lane . . .

Alrighty then.

King Arthur Flour was having a sale and offering free shipping, and since I wanted some of their Irish Flour so I can finally attempt to make some wheaten bread, which is a brow soda bread common in Northern Ireland, I decided to engage in some retail therapy.  And . . . um . . .  I needed something to make up the difference so I could get free shipping . . .

I've been wanting a better spiralizer.  The first one I got was handheld and very inexpensive:

You have to hold on to it pretty tightly, and while the metal sides aren't sharp, they aren't comfortable to hold.  You also have to brace it somehow to get it to work.  I struggled with it a lot, and found that I was wasting a lot of whatever I was spiralizing.

So . . . this arrived today with my flour:


Seriously, it looks like a hacksaw with attachments  :-D  This is the spiralizer attachment for my KitchenAid mixer and it is a serious piece of equipment. I can hardly wait to try it!  I really didn't think it was going to be so big, but I like how it's sturdy - and I also like that it can go in the dishwasher.  Yay!  I'll let you know how it works - oh, and the handheld is going to the Second Chance Shop where I'm hopeful that someone else will be thrilled to get it.

This is what popped out of the Power Thought deck this morning:

My Future is Glorious

I now live in limitless love, light, and joy.
All is well in my world.

And one of my cousins posted this this morning and it's one of my all-time favorites.  Enjoy  :-)

I am thankful for my cousin, S.
