Mixer envy.

It dawned on me I've inadvertently become a serious foodie when I compared the King Arthur Flour Baker's Catalogue to porn in an IM conversation with revme.

It really kicked in that while going on about my mixer, I mentioned there's one home mixer that's more badass than mine: the Viking Professional Stand Mixer 7-quart model. 1000-watt motor makes me drool. And possibly swoon... until I remember I have a KitchenAid Professional 6-quart stand mixer with a 525-watt motor that cost me less than half the price of that Viking thanks to factory refurb goodness.

On that note, I think I'm going to finally acquire the 6-quart bowl pouring shield so I avoid my usual flouring of a 4' radius every time I make cookies. He's getting a Zyliss nutmeg grinder in his stocking (he treads where I don't in cooking and is currently collecting grinders and graters), so why shouldn't mine have something I actually need in it? Heh.
