You might recall, last week Boomdeeadda had a road trip to Stony Plain, Alberta to brush up on my knitting skills. Wouldn’t you know it, there’s also an antique store in town. Naturally, we wouldn’t dream of leaving town without a look-see, we aren’t knit-wits (groan, yah I know that’s LAME). I had no I idea what I was looking for, but do I ever? Que heavenly angel choir please!
LOOK! Isn’t it to die for?
Amazingly, it has the original aqua glass bowl and the original user manual, I’ve looked on-line and I think that’s pretty rare. I’m getting a real chuckle looking at all the vintage recipe ideas.
There’s an entire section on ‘what you can do with a packaged cake mix’ called Busy Day Baking. They said:
“Even tho’ your family enjoys the homey goodness of cakes that you make from “Start to Finish” recipes, you’ll want to keep your favorite cake mixes on the pantry shelf for hurry-up baking. Your Sunbeam Mixmaster has them ready for the oven in minutes without arm-tiring beating and stirring”.
LOL, oh the drudgery of stirring. Marketing 101 – create a need, ha! The writers of that little diddy couldn’t have predicted the speed at which we all move through life today. Personally, I love the idea of being a ‘stay at home’ housewife with a lazy-day schedule that allows me to make “Start to Finish” recipes for Mr B.
Hold the phone, I resemble that remark! I am living the life of a 1950’s housewife, and having a jolly good time of it I must say. Move along Betty Draper, Boomdeeadda’s in town!
In fact, I had never owned a stand up mixer. So although it might seem frivolous to some (Mr B) that I come home from a knitting class with a large counter top appliance, it was an entirely sensible expense. Plus, COME ON, it’s aqua too! It’s been a few days now. I’ve even made a delicious pie, but when ever I walk into my kitchen and see my beautiful old mixer sitting there, I think I can still hear the angels singing.
You may not have your very own ‘Vintage 1957 Aqua Blue Sunbeam Mixmaster’, but you can still make this delicious pie. You just won’t hear Angels singing.
