Domestic Bliss

Today I received my juicer attachment for my 1950's Sunbeam Mixmaster. My mum gave me the mixer during my last visit. She said she didn't use it anymore. It did not come with attachments.

Then one day while reading a post in Homer's World, he wrote his juicer bit the dust so he found a replacement on eBay. I said to myself; "duh. eBay!" So I immediately logged on and found the juicer attachment and won it. It cost me only $5.00. I think Homer spent $9. For shame! Actually I spent more in shipping, but just look at it! I mean, isn't it wonderful?

Okay, okay. Shut up, I need a boyfriend!

Anyway my mum had not used it in quite sometime as she had purchased a new fangled mixer awhile back. I think I need to oil this thing. There are two tiny holes on the top of the mixer where I believe one should place drops of oil, but I am not sure. I am trying to find a manual Online, but no luck so far. I have my father’s old solid steel drill, which has the same type of hole on top, but there is an engraving that reads, "oil" so that is obvious.

Ah, domestic bliss.

A Mixmaster? Are you a DJ? :-) Attachments are just kinky! Anyway, I wouldn't know what to do with a mixer cuz I don't cook. Last week I made some Tuna Helper [I don't eat that crap too often, 1st time in years!] and I f'd it up... I forgot to put the main seasoning packet in there... It was awful, but we ate it all anyway! heh!

My $9 juicer bowl turned out to be a slightly different model than my mixer. It still works, but I get seeds in my juice :(

Tuna Helper? Robert, for shame!

Seeds? How horrible. I have not tried mine as of yet. I will let you know.
