Nah, I'm not speaking of money - but I am speaking of material things.
One of the items my Daddy gave to me about a month ago was his old Hobart/KitchenAid Stand Mixer - it's about 30 years old now. I used to tease him that if he didn't bake for 2 weeks I was confiscating his mixer! Of course, I stopped doing that when he had to stop baking - but I held off on taking it for as long as I could.
He was supposed to show me how to use it but we just never found the time. I only learned how to use a Hand Mixer a couple of months ago! Can you say fork? That is how I mixed things, with a fork and then I learned how to use a Whip.
Today I worked up the nerve to use his Hobart and I love it! How I wish I could call him and tell him. *sigh* I had so much fun making his cheesecake - it was all I could do not to make a 2nd batch!
Tell your loved ones and friends how much you appreciate them - while you still can.
Dad knew I would love his mixer - I was just so afraid of it - and I had even dared to hope he would feel better again and resume baking.
@Blackheart904 - I only learned how to make gravy about a year ago, lol. Hence "the whip."
**using the mixer is such fun! I need to buy more cream cheese!!
**edit: nope - not a secret recipe. just 'google' juniors cheesecake recipe and you will find it!
***another edit: the cheesecake passed the "taste test" at the family reunion! WooHoo!!
