Or if I just put it away, would the kids shake their heads, "She bought this and didn't even use it!" or words to that effect.

Tra-la-la, a'splitting hairs we go. Something tells me Addie could settle my hash pretty quickly when I go on like this.

no two ways about it tin, scoop up the ka--one of the artisan ones!:) a ka prettily poised on the counter of your kitchen would be a beeUtiful sight, tin. classic, solid and spare all at once, your shiny new ka will sit as reigning royalty in your kitchen, dazzling to every eye.--- yeah, well, MAKE room, move some stuff!:) and just maybe you can be persuaded to bake some goodies for our little coffee klatch, with your new muscle mixer?:) looking over the various colors being offered in the ka artisan line, tin, i was really taken with a few of their 'new' shades. bright candy red and glacial white are givens, of course, but there is this soft green, they are calling 'Pear' that totally blew me away--sublime, tin! another one, also in an off-green shade, named 'bay leaf'---subtly, powerfully, irresistible....

of course, you will probably want to ask your girl to divulge which colors she is likely to be favoring at the time immediately following the event of your death....

You smooth talker, you. I already know which one she wants...I can see it now, between a nose honk and a wipe of the eye, "Oh, look. It's the Copper One! Thanks, Mom." See me smile.

As for treats, I have a special weakness for Igloo Oatmeal Cookies that have a browned butter frosting. I lost, er, misplaced the recipe last month so didn't get to make them. Oh, boy. Notwithstanding the coffee thingy here, an ice-cold glass of milk from kades' fridge would be perfect with them.

Maybe I should check Andy's old post to see what color that KA was that attacked his toilet. Wouldn't want to have to deal with that.

Was it Mighty Long Wind person who named his red KA Lucille? or am I misremembering?

It was FrankZ. And I think Andy's KA was red too wasn't it?

My KA is a really old one. From when they were made by Hobart I think. Its a workhorse. Love it. I have another system that I use rarely or when there are two of us baking at once, but the KA is my baby. Mine has the old fashioned lift head. I prefer it to the lift bowl mechanism they have now. My sister got one of those and hated it.

Just made my first cup of espresso allongé. I'll have that and see if anyone drops by here. Got a lot of cleaning and some prep to do. I've got friends coming over for cocktails and dinner.
I have Italian roast decaf if she would like some I'd be more than glad to shar and I put plenty of creamers in the refridgerator when I had it brought in.

We have quite the place here. The never empty fridge, fresh roasts, k-cups, any kind of coffee maker you could think of. The only thing missing is the wonderful machine that makes Irish Coffee (I think Callahan might share). Study space. I do prefer the counter height table in the bay window, so I can people watch, too!

Look there's even an area to wash and clean ruined keyboards and monitors...

Very nice place.

hello there, jbb.:) welcome to dc, and to the dc coffee klatch, newly hatched, (or brewed) as we are. grab a chair, make yourself at home. good, you brought coffee. help yourself to a ginger cookie. one of the newbies left them here for us, said she started a new diet....we are just getting set up here, jbb. kades got a fridge for us to use here, for milk and creamers and stuff. look, jbb, it makes ice cubes too!!--round ones with holes! my refrigerator at home doesn't even have an icemaker...well, unless you count the ice cube trays in the freezer...wonder if the admins will let us have a microwave oven for in here....
