A new mixer would make me "the best wife and mom in the world" according the hubby and kids.

This morning I made Blueberry buttermilk pancakes from scratch and they turned out amazing and the kids loved them. I didn't do a cost breakdown but I do know I only used 2cups of flour and buttermilk and 2 eggs and 1/4 cup of butter and sugar. And got way more mix than I would if I did half a box of pancake mix that still calls for 2cups of milk and 2 eggs. And it tastes much better. It also didn't take much time to mix a few more ingredients into a mixing bowl than it does for a box mix. And I can do that ahead of time. I fed me and 3 kids this morning and saved some mix to cook some for hubby tomorrow since he's off.

Dh LOVED his peanut butter cookies and cinnamon bread. I will make another loaf of cinnamon bread on Saturday to bring to my moms house to have for breakfast before church on Easter.

Tonight I am making homemade mashed tators. CAN'T wait.

hand mixer
