I know it is hard to believe, but…….I misplaced my KitchenAid Stand Mixer for 6 years! I know, I know!!! We were going to move and packed a lot of our things away….moved them to a storage building and there they sat. Only the storage building is 4+ hours away and when I did visit, I never could find my long lost KitchenAid.
Last year, I found it!!! I was ecstatic! Whoopie! Woot Woot! Happy Dance and more that I’ll spare you the details of. This White Bread (which is perfect for sandwiches or your favorite soups and stews) is the first thing I made with my KitchenAid once it was back home…where she rightfully belongs, never to part again. She is well over 20 years old and is still mixin’ along, although a little worse from sitting idle all those years.
