Digging Deep

Jackson: "Mom, what do you want for Christmas?"

Me: "A Bosch." (top of the line mixer for aspiring domestic goddesses such as myself. My friend Carol Fawson is schooling me in the art of bread making).
Jackson: (perplexed, as he should be) "Way to dig deep, mom."

This is the same Big Guy who, as of late, has been sneaking up ever so early on Sunday mornings, (his father and I ignoring the clanks and clatter in the kitchen at 6:30am on the only day we get to sleep in). He's produced a couple of extremely edible breakfasts.
I'm talking waffles, scrambled eggs, hash browns, and bacon (microwavable, but still).

Love you, my nine year old chef.

Sorry Anonymous. But alas, there will be no Tobler Christmas cards this year...just never got around to it. I'm working on an email maybe before January is over?!?
Merry Christmas, whoever you are!

I love the look of the new Bosch's. mine is the old style that take up a ton of room. And with my luck (and their reputation) it will never die.
I love that Jackson cooks!

Jackson is going to LOVE that Bosch soon!!! He will be so grateful and maybe you can gift him one when he gets his Masters Degree like my parents did for me. he he.
