First, thank you for all your "jealous" comments... I am totally jealous of myself too!!
I've been toying with the idea of getting a second bowl for my stand mixer pretty much since the day I wonderful David carried it home through Chelmsford town centre. Ok, two bowls might seem a bit...luxurious...but, I don't have a hand mixer...I don't have a food processor...I only have my glorious stand mixer....meaning that those recipes that call for eggs whites to be whisked separately are totally annoying...they require more planning than I am prepared to do. So a second bowl it is. I decided on the glass bowl because...well...it is just simply gorgeous. Saying that, it is flipping difficult to find in the UK!
After some web searches I was beginning to fear that the only way to fulfil my Kitchen Aid dream was going to be through an online purchase. I went to John Lewis and asked for help...no luck...I went to Debenhams...no luck...finally, on a whim I popped into the cute Creative Cookware Shop on Edinburgh's Rose Street, where I found the friendliest staff I've come face to face with in a long time. I asked...and was so happy to discover that while Kitchen Aid accessories weren't stocked in store they could be ordered!! It might take a while to be delivered, I was told...I am in no hurry...says I.
Just over one week later...My kitchen counter looks so much more happy!
